“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.”
Romans 8:28 NKJV
This scripture has been on my mind and heart for the last two weeks. As we are faced with challenges, disappointments, death, destruction and terror it’s hard to believe. When things happen that are unexpected and oftentimes contrary to what God means to us we forget this scripture.
When I think of ALL I get all choked up. It means that when your life went off your plan it was still in Gods plan. It means when you were abandoned by someone you expected to be there, as painful as it was, God had already provided for you in that situation. When you were abused, or were the abuser, God had made provision in that situation. I am not implying that he wanted you hurt, he does not need to damage you to bless you, but whatever the situation is, your All is covered.
Your all and my all may look different. But know that it is All covered.
Now rest assured that the Lord who began a good work in you will continue it until the end. Remember that you were created in his likeness and his image and so you are equipped to deal with whatever you are faced with.
“I pray that the God who gives hope will fill you with much joy and peace as you trust in him. Then you will have more and more hope, and it will flow out of you by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
