The hope of saying “It’s all in God’s plan” is to offer comfort and solace. It hints that because it’s God’s will, God will help us through it. But ‘Everything Happens for a Reason’ is not a true Christian affirmation.
The promise and good news of Easter isn’t about what God has done, it’s about what God is still doing. It’s about God’s replicated grace, unending, and unmatched. He is risen!
