Adversity Is Not A Licence To Sin

Should we accept only good from God and not adversity?” Throughout all this Job did not sin in what he said. Job 2:10 HCDB

We don’t worship God because things are good or otherwise. We worship Him because of His sovereign oversight and care for our life. Even in adversity, I am here:
(i) by God’s appointment;
(ii) in His keeping;
(iii) under His training; and
(iv) for His time.

Andrew Murray (1828 – 1917)
