All God’s ways with His people will eventually work out for blessing.
Whether it be His mercies which are new every morning, or His disciplinary dealings against which we often complain. All are for our good. Therefore, we may well heed the admonition. “In everything give thanks.”
There is no such thing as ‘bad luck’ for the child of God. All is ordered by a loving Father’s hand and the experiences which seem the hardest to understand and the most distressing to endure, are under the control of Him who makes no mistakes but orders all for His glory and our profit.
