As I was reading my bible, i bumped into this verse “We know that in all things God works for good with those who love him, those whom he has called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
Everyone goes through things that don’t seem to make sense. I can still remember when I attended a service in Alabang (Elevate Alabang) a guy told us "no one is exempted to the disappointments of life". Yes it is easy for us to get discouraged and wonder, “Why did this happen to me? I don't deserve this" But we have to understand, even though life is not always fair, God is fair. He promised to work all things together for good for those who believe & love Him.
I believe the key word in this verse is “good” In other words, we can’t just isolate one part of our lives && say, “Well, this is not good.” Yes, that’s true, but that’s just one part of your life. God can see the big picture. That disappointment or pain is not the end. Those difficulties && challenges are merely stepping stones towards our brighter future. Is it worth it? Oh yes! It’s more than worth it. We can’t begin to imagine the glory God has in store for us. No matter how hard, bad, or painful our trip through this world may be, our future with God holds something incomparably better. Does that mean my difficulties are meaningless or insignificant?Of course not! But our future glory with God does mean that it is more than worth it to hang in, to be faithful, and to receive his glorious reward...
God said “…I rescue you and set you free fron your slavery; I will raise my mighty arm to save you” (Exodus 6:6).
Remember that no matter what’s going on in your life, no matter how bad nor painful God has a plan to free you from everything that would try to hold you back. He will rescue us and show His mighty hand of favor and blessing. But of course it will only happen “with special & vigorous action.” What does that mean? That only means, if we will stay in faith even in the difficult times, God is going to show up with explosive blessings. Yes, an explosive one!!He is going bring supernatural turanaround for nothing is impossible with Him! God is saying, “I’m going to free you from the bondage of lack. I’m going to free you from the burden of depression &&& discouragement. I’m going to free you from every addiction, every bad habit.” We don’t have to live in bondage to anything any longer! God’s arm of deliverance is outstretched toward us.. He is setting us free from every bondage so that you can live the life of victory He has in store for you.. So let us all be encouraged today because God has a plan for us to rise higher. He has a plan for us to come out stronger. He has a plan to work all things together for our own good so that we can move forward in the victory He has prepared for us. SURRENDER EVERYTHING TO GOD. TRUST HIM!!
