And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. ROMANS 8:28 Amplified Bible
This verse should be the greatest comforter, encourager and strengthener in every Christian life when going through trials and tribulations, sorrow and snare.
“How can you say that?” you may ask.
Think about it.
When we are going through a job loss and we do not know where the money is going to come in to pay the bills and it seems as if God is no where to be seen. That is a good thing. It may not seem like it at the time but through this process you will: A: learn to pray sincerely and deeply like you never have before. In this process you draw closer to Jehovah, which is His purpose. And that is a good thing.
B: it will teach you to depend upon Him instead of yourself or your company or anything else that will fail you. And that is a good thing.
C: this will teach you to love, respect and adore our heavenly Father. And that is a good thing.
The same thing will occur in every avenue of your life if you are a Christian.
Through your hard times you will learn to depend upon Jehovahs unending resources, appreciate Him more and draw every deeper into a Divine loving relationship with Him.
And that is a good thing.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh (God is our Provider) for providing me with Your divine wisdom, providence and assurance in every aspect of my life. The best part of this blessing is in developing an amazing loving relationship with you. I exalt You in the name of He whose sacrifice on the cross and resurrection made this all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
