ALL things work together for Your Good When You Love God!!!

Today, God wants to encourage you saying "all these will work out for your good. For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11.

You may say it is easy to accept this word when things are fine, but I encourage you to take this word in, in your worst of your situations as the Word of God says "All things work together for the good of those that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28.

God knows our strengths and weaknesses and to what extent we can bear things. When I believe and confess it is all for my good, my God whom I love and who has called me for His purpose will not do any harm, I stay closer to His heart.

One of my friends shared her experience with me, which I would like to mention here to understand better on how to exercise that Faith statement. She and her colleagues received their appraisal letters sometime recently. Her appraisal was not up to her expectation and one of her colleague, a Junior guy, has received a much better increment unduly. She was not able to bear it and she thought, "I didn't trust my bosses to be fair, but I trusted You, O GOD, but how could you allow this to happen? If I am blessed better, will I not give much more to your Kingdom than that guy who would spend it on disco and drinks? Don't you want your child to be blessed better and make a difference between those who know You and who don't know You?" As these thoughts clouded her mind and her eyes filled with tears, the Spirit of the Lord directed her to mediate on the goodness and faithfulness of God, and she started to confess "All things are working together for MY GOOD BECAUSE I LOVE GOD WHO IS GOOD, and immediately a great peace and joy filled her heart. This experience of hers is a blessing to me and I believe it will be to you also!!

What I learn from this: Having a positive attitude of gratitude towards God and NEVER ALLOWING ANY THOUGHTS THAT QUESTION THE GOODNESS AND FAITHFULNESS OF GOD TO PERSIST in our minds, will keep us closer to His heart, just like David who is called a man after the Heart of God. So, be encouraged today of the undeniable fact that "all things will work out for your Good," as you continue to love God.

God Bless you!!!
