And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. Romans 8:28 The Holy Bible , The New Living Translation
There are three important statements here.
The first is that everything that occurs in our life is for our own good. Going through them may not seem like most of the time. I cannot count the number of times I cried out unto our Heavenly Beloved with rivers of tears running down my cheeks and asked Him: “ My Lord , my Lord why are You allowing this to happen to me. I know You love me. I know You care. So , why are You silent during this catastrophe? “ Later , sometimes much later ( as in years later ) , when it has passed our Love opens my eyes to the reason He permitted it to happen. It is usually three things: one is to burn off the dross , which is bad dispositions in our lives that are ungodly.
Two is to grow our faith in Him and three is to mature us into the children He desires for us to be .
That brings up point number three: The events are always for our own good. The third part of this equation is that these events are preparing us for service unto our Heavenly King , Jesus. This is not a one off event but rather done in stages. In my life He sent me to one place to educate me and prepare for me to serve Him in the next place of service. This place was preparing me to serve Him in the next. All told He has taken me through three stages of service unto Him. In the process there was a lot of painful burning off of the dross and a lot of maturing going on. Now, I am eternally grateful for what He has done in me and through me.
Prayer: Thank you oh Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator Isaiah 40:28 ) for blessing me with Your wise strong hand to create the beautiful child You know I can be and for the honour of serving my cherished king , Jesus Christ through it all. It is in His majestic name I give thanks. Amen
May you be blessed with the strong trust that the Lord is using difficult situations in your life to mold you into the beautiful child He knows you are made to be in service to our Heavenly king , Jesus Joseph a son of Jehovah
