“I treat people kindly. I don’t bother anybody. I help when I can. I’m a good person. I don’t know why this happened to me.”

Some of us think our good deeds can keep us from facing difficulties. We may blame God because we think our good efforts should have awarded us protection from God. That’s not how this works.

No matter how good we think we are, we’ll all experience difficulties. On top of that, there’s a real devil who likes no one and He wants to see us all suffer and be destroyed (John 10:10).

Like getting tackled is a part of football, difficulties are a part of life. How we handle these difficulties determines the source and the strength of our foundation. If our foundation is in our good efforts, it won’t last because we’ll always feel like it’s unfair when we go through difficulties. But, if our source is in Christ, it will turn that tragedy into a triumph and the more we rely on Christ to get us through, the stronger our foundation becomes.

Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
Colossians 2:7 NLT
