Is God behind everything that happens to us?
This isn’t an easy question to answer. On one hand, God is sovereign, and in ways we can only dimly understand this side of eternity, He is at work behind the scenes. The Psalmist wrote, “He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake” (Psalm 23:3).
But on the other hand, the Bible warns us against assuming that everything that comes our way is from God.
God never leads us to do anything that is contrary to what He has told us in His Word.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness.
