“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
It’s mind-boggling to see how God works things out for our good. Just think of the challenges that you have been through, the mistakes you have made, the trials you have endured and the persecution that you have faced and then recall how by God’s grace you made it through. It’s truly astounding. We serve a remarkable God who works in remarkable ways!
The scripture says that all things work together for good to those who love God and to those who are the called according to His purpose, but read the first three words… “And we know”. This is the key. It’s not really a matter of what you are going through or what it looks like, but a matter of knowing (letting this truth be settled in your heart) that God is using everything and making it work for you. God has big plans for you! He has given you a divine destiny that only you can fulfill! He orchestrates rough times in our lives for our good. We are processed so that the character of Christ would be formed in us and we would bring Him glory.
Today, embrace the challenges that you face, not because you enjoy pain, but because you know that those who are in Christ Jesus are being changed from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord. There is purpose in every step you take.
