5 Ways to Be Stress-Free This Christmas by Gloria Copeland


Christmas Changes Everything by Benny Perez


Your Life's Quest I by Mac Hammond


Today's featured devotional...
winterpathgirlWhy do bad things happen to good people? That is one of the most asked questions of all time!

I don't know if you realize this, but the devil is indiscriminate. By that, I mean that he hates every person—saved or not saved—equally. He hates. That's what he does. He hates, and because of that, Jesus called him the "thief that comes to kill, steal, and destroy." He hates not only human beings, but everything God has created! He knows his destiny is to be tormented in hell.

That's why demons would scream out when they saw Jesus walk the earth. They knew their time was coming, and they were fearful beyond belief. We see that they recognized Jesus as God and knew their future was hell.

Luke 4:34 says, "Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!" We see this again in Matthew 8:29: "And suddenly they cried out, saying, 'What have we to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?'"

I'm telling you all this to help you understand that the devil knows his future and desires to hurt all of God's creation, including you and I. That means attacks come in our life, sometimes seemingly out of nowhere. It doesn't matter if you're a Christian that's been doing all you know to live right before the Lord. It doesn't matter if you're a really good person. You may be serving in ministry or helping people. You may be faithfully giving tithes and offerings.

You may have thought, Lord, I am doing everything I know to do. Lord, your Word says if I do these things, you will take care of me and help me and protect me from the enemy. Lord, I don't understand what is going on. I thought you'd protect me from all this?

Anyone can feel like this, and I know many do. For some, it has led to confusion and doubt about some beliefs and promises you've held as sacred truths. Now they're being tested, and you’re being tempted to doubt them.

When circumstances are difficult and we're hurting and can't figure out why, it sometimes leads to confusion and frustration. When people feel hurt, angry, disappointed, and frustrated, they want to be mad at someone. Some get mad at God. They want to take their frustrations out on someone. Because we can't see God, people often get mad at those who represent God, including your pastor, your church, your beliefs, or even your Christian friends.
