Sometimes the “bad” circumstances of life are not always bad if God is accomplishing something good. In fact, it’s better to be in a “bad place” WITH God than to be in a “good place” without Him! So often God uses difficult situations to purge us of things we need to get rid of in our lives or to grow us in ways we need to mature. This was the case with the Jews and why God sent them to Babylon for seventy years. Though they saw their circumstances as “bad”, God saw it as “good” because He was accomplishing His good purposes in their lives. God works in a similar way with us, and Pastor Gary explains it from Jeremiah 24 in today’s teaching, “Good Things Out of a Bad Place”.
