Bad days…we all have them. Some days it just seems that you should not have gotten out of bed. Then there are those days that are not as bad as that, but you still want the day to be done!

Some days qualify for epic bad day status, a loved one passed away, we receive really bad news like a cancer diagnosis, we suffer a severe injury etc. These days are tough to deal with no doubt about it.

Our common enemy Satan will do all he can to ensure we have as many bad days as possible and to make them as bad as he can through his influence. If you are one who serves the Lord in any capacity on a regular basis, you can be assured you are a target of the evil one.

When you are in the midst of trials and tribulations what do you do? It is easy to let yourself be carried away by the frustration and anger, to get caught up in why me? syndrome. I have done this and still do at times to be honest, I’m human and I fail. What purpose does this serve though? Does any good come from getting caught up in negative thinking and being carried away on the tide of emotion? Obviously the answer to that is a resounding no! Well then what should we be doing when calamity strikes, when Bad Day Himself (there is such a spirit running around right?) 🙂 darkens our doorstep?

First thing to do, VERY first thing we need to do…before even asking God to help us. Call out to God yes, but praise His Holy Name and give thanks to Him for all things…including your present circumstances. Sounds insane doesn’t it? Why on earth would I want to be thankful for bad things? Ever hear of a sacrifice of praise? If praising God was always easy, there would be no sacrifice involved right? Your praise to God in the midst of severe trials and pain means more to Him than does the praise you offer on Sunday morning. In the same way, an offering made to God in the collection plate on Sunday that cost you something also means more than giving out of abundance does.

Hebrews 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is , the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

God has allowed bad things into your life and will allow more, count on it. I can hear you saying it, “but why would God allow bad things to happen to me, I don’t deserve this”? Sometimes God will allow bad things to happen because we DO deserve it because of something we have done against Him. However, there are plenty of things that can happen, that are allowed in your life that have nothing whatsoever to do with what you do or do not deserve.

God allows many things into our lives for a simple reason and it has nothing to do with sin; to teach us something. I’m sure you have heard the old adage seeing is believing? Well maybe you are a little to dependent on your fleshly senses…and need to learn to walk by faith; what you do not see. Maybe you are living in a particular sin, so God allows some things to happen to get your attention so that you will learn that you need to stop doing this thing. Maybe your trust in God is lacking, you are too disobedient (can we ever be obedient enough?, I doubt it), maybe you are to judgmental. The list could go on forever. The point is God often allows something to happen in our life and will continue to allow it until we learn what He is trying to teach us!

This is simply another way that we know how deeply God loves us. Crazy right? God allows things that hurt us and this is good??? YES it is! Think of it this way; you have kids and are raising them right you hope. Often we as parents will try to prevent our children from doing things that will hurt them because we love them. That being said however, if we are truly good parents we will intentionally let our children fall down and get hurt though it pains us to do so….why? Because often the best lessons learned are learned by way of pain and hardship, if the lesson is easy, we tend not to learn it. We love our children enough to allow them to fail so as to learn and grow as people…this is a very loving thing to do. God loves us more than we can ever love Him or our kids spouses etc; and He does the same thing with us! Ever see the child, young adult etc that gets away with everything, never seems to have to pay the piper for wrong doing?? No one likes this person but secretly we all have wished we could get away with everything. This is the one that mom and dad always cleaned up the mess for, never allowing that person to fall down and get hurt. It is also the same one who when on his or her own some day will not know how to live in the world and will be in serious trouble when no one is around to fix it.

Has God allowed turmoil and problems in your life? Be thankful…He loves and cares about you enough to try to teach you the error of your ways. Read the following scriptures about what God allowed in the Apostle Paul’s life.

2 Corinthians 11:20-33

20 For ye suffer , if a man bring you into bondage , if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself , if a man smite you on the face. 21 I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak . Howbeit whereinsoever any is bold , (I speak foolishly ,) I am bold also. 22 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I. 23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool ) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. 24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. 25 Thrice was I beaten with rods , once was I stoned , thrice I suffered shipwreck , a night and a day I have been in the deep; 26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; 27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. 28 Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily , the care of all the churches. 29 Who is weak , and I am not weak ? who is offended , and I burn not? 30 If I must needs glory , I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities. 31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not. 32 In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison , desirous to apprehend me: 33 And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.

Listen to the following song by MercyMe and concentrate on the lyrics:

Bring the Rain

I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that I’ve gone through
The question just amazes me
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You
Maybe since my life was changed
Long before these rainy days
It’s never really ever crossed my mind
To turn my back on you, oh Lord
My only shelter from the storm
But instead I draw closer through these times
So I pray

Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there’ll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that’s what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain

  1. Great article! My best girl friend called me today crying and screaming and saying how angry she is with God and that she hates her husband. She is definitely having a bad day. She doesn’t blog so I will try to get this to her somehow. Tweeted this. Oh, and I hate bad days too and have more than I’d like. May I do what is right in His sight when I do.

    • Thank you.
      Copy the article and paste into email.
      I will pray for her and you as well.
      Remember God is there, but when we refuse to spend time with Him, He will not draw close to us. We must go to Him, God will not push Himself on us, we need to want and accept Him freely.

      God bless

  2. Great message, Greg. The funny thing is that I went to visit someone at the prison. All the way there and all the way back I played this song since it is my favorite. I had decided to put it at the end of my blog message that I am writing and it is similar to yours! Amazing. God bless.

  3. Greg, great article, so many people look to blame God or others rather then look inwardly and examine their lives. And yes God has a way of getting our attention when we wonder off or get the “I got this” attitude. The worst thing we can do is not learn from our trials, then they are a waste and what the LORD has intended for us to learn will either come with another trial, even worse perhaps or God may just allow us to wither away from Him. This would be sad. So I agree with you, let us take our trials with joy as brother James tells us and walk with Him through our trials and come out like refined gold on the other side. Blessings,
    Rabbi Eric

    • Thank you Rabbi Eric.
      The neat thing about giving God praise even in the midst of pain and trial—one will find things are better. That does not at all mean that God takes away what pains us right that moment, but rather our sacrifice of praise rewards us in that we feel better, we are better equipped to deal with whatever we have been dealt. Glory to God
      God bless you Rabbi Eric
