Knowing what the bible says God is will help us to understand why He does what He does.
God is love. That means He will only ever do things from the stand point of what He is…love. When you feel that He has betrayed you, would true love have betrayed you? Or did you betray Him? Have you ever heard or felt like God was giving you hard times to test you? Does love make people suffer?
In 1 Corinthians 13 is tells us what love is.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends.
This is God. When hard times come don’t blame God. Blame the sin and evil in this world.
And trust God because He IS LOVE.
