Verse of the day
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.
Sometimes we are tempted to despair over seemingly unfavorable experiences. We forget how God made, is making and will make even our trials and pain to work together in our favor – an end which we often fail to see. In these situations, it is better to remember that God never loves us less. The uncomfortable situations and circumstances are not a product of a lesser love but of the same love which works in us towards an expected end. God is good, and His mercies endure forever; He makes every circumstance, every person we meet, and all things work together for our good even when we don’t see things the same way.
This guarantee is to we who love Him, reflected in our voluntary obedience and submission to His will; we who are the called according to His purpose because; we who have responded to His saving call. He owns all of life and ensures that all it offers are in line with His plan and purposes for our lives.
Therefore, as we look back at the unpleasant circumstances we’ve encountered, may we never forget that the Lord is always making all things work for our good. He is never caught unawares by the things that happen to us. He is never in a reactionary position.
