Have you ever noticed when we say, “It’s a God thing” that we’re usually talking about something good? You know what I’m talking about. You weren’t sure how you were going to pay the mortgage, but God provided the check in the mail. “It’s a God thing.” What about those moments where you just don’t see a way out? You’ve lost your job. You’ve lost a third of your retirement. You’ve gotten news you’ve got cancer. Is that also a “God thing?” My pastor said this, “If our ‘God thing’ in our theology never includes a ‘suffer-ing’ we give up the true thing for a false thing.” Jesus died on a cross. Wasn’t THAT a suffer-ing? God uses ALL things for His good. Even the coronavirus.
