Is It True That Everything Happens for a Reason?

People often say that everything happens for a reason. However, this idea isn’t Biblical and it gives people the wrong idea about God. When people say that everything happens for a reason, they usually mean that whatever happens is exactly what God wanted to happen. That isn’t true. There are 7 billion humans running around doing terrible things that God doesn’t want them to do. We shouldn’t say that everything happens for a reason, but we can say that no matter what tragedy we experience, God has a way of redeeming it and making it part of our story of victory.
