Bible verses that say God causes all things to happen, good or bad
God is sovereign which means he is control of everything that happens on earth—good or bad. God allows terrible things to happen to good people because He has a purpose for everything.
But whatever bad things that may be, we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love and are called, according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
The lot (or playing dice today) is cast into the lap, but every decision is from the Lord.
I form light and create darkness. I make success and create disaster; I, Yahweh, do all these things.
Who is there who speaks, and it happens, unless the Lord has ordained it? Do not both adversity and good
come from the mouth of the Most High?
I know You can do anything, and no plan of Yours can be thwarted.
