And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 KJV)
I was thinking about everything that’s been going on the last year or so. There’s been a lot of changes. We’ve lost many family and friends, but I want you to keep one thing in mind…..God is in control and he has our best interests at heart. I also want to take a closer look at that scripture.
And we know – we being the saints of God, can be certain or sure of this as fact
That all things work together – this means each and everything is working in harmony
For the good – that means it is useful, not intended for harm
To them – that’s us, His saints
That love God – this is conditional, based on your true & sincere affection for God
To them who are called – called means to be marked out, summoned by name….everyone is Called by God, set apart for a predetermined purpose
According to his purpose – God has a plan for us, he has designed us specifically for special use predetermined by Him.
We must remember that the purpose God has for us is good and not evil. We know that all good and perfect gifts come from The Lord. James 1:17
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)
Don’t be discouraged today. Know that God loves you and he is working everything out according to his good and perfect will for you.
I love you guys.
