It’s ALL Working Together For My Good
Romans 8:28, according to the Amplified Bible/AMP translation tells us, “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.”
What I love about this verse is that God didn’t say that only good things, pretty things, pleasant things or easy things would work together for our good. God said that ALL things work together (as a plan) for good for those who love Him and who are called according to His plan and purpose.
That means that those bad things, ugly things, unpleasant things and difficult things, along with everything else are working for our GOOD.
The enemy would like to do all he can to cause us to think and believe contrary to this TRUTH, but oh, we know that the enemy’s native tongue is lying.
God is NOT like man that He would lie; NOR are His ways or thoughts anything like our own (Thank You Jesus!!).
When I look back on my life thus far, there were so many days that I didn’t understand why things were the way they were or how I was going to make it through, but I’m here today to tell you that not only do I celebrate my mountain high experiences, but I am so grateful for those valley low moments as well.
I have experienced the kind of lows that would have rendered me the undisputed limbo champion, BUT GOD… He was there all along showing me that not only would ALL things work together for my good, but that EVERYTHING that the enemy intended for evil, GOD WOULD turn it around for MY GOOD.
And that is why I don’t have ANY regrets and I will continue to wait on the Lord because I know that He is DEEPLY concerned about me and IS working on my behalf.
Be Blessed My Encouragement for Your Journey Family!!
