When You Love GOD, All Things Work Together For GOOD
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
First of all, Fear is not an option when we love the LORD and are a believer in His Word. HE tells us that ALL THINGS work together for good to them that love GOD. All means all. The good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, will work together for GOOD. If we separate them, we will categorize them as good and evil. Yet, even those things that satan intends for evil, GOD will turn around for GOOD. We segregate everything. We classify everything. BUT GOD takes everything that comes our way to bring good out of it in our lives when we LOVE HIM.
Secondly, the scripture says that are the called. We are the called out ones. He has called you out of darkness and translated you into His marvelous light. He has brought you into the family of GOD. You are in the world, but not of this world, a citizen of heaven. You are not a sinner, but a saint. You are born of GOD. You are the people of GOD. You are a holy nation, a royal priesthood. Have you forgotten who you are in Christ?
Third, all things work out for good, ...according to HIS PURPOSE. God has a purpose, and your life, which is eternal, has a divine purpose. HIS PURPOSE will unfold. It is a powerful, productive, precious purpose. It is higher, greater, broader, deeper than anything you can ever imagine. IT IS ALWAYS GOOD, so what GOD does is going to always be a good purpose that will astound you! GOOD is the WORD and Work of the LORD for YOU, always!
There is nothing that takes Him by surprise, and nothing that frightens Him. He has you. He holds you in the palm of His hands. TRUST HIM. TRUST His love for you. TRUST His presence. Be at peace. No one can pluck you out of His hands, and you are safe and secure in HIM.
WE KNOW! This is not a guessing game. It is not an empty hope or unfulfilled promise WE KNOW that all things work together for our good, because we LOVE GOD. Because we are the CALLED. Because our purpose is ordained of GOD, and there is no mistake. There is nothing that can change the mind and will and purpose of GOD for you.
LET US TRUST in our builder and maker, who is GOD, and believe His Word, trust in Him at all times, as King David did. HE said, at what times I am afraid, I will trust in the LORD. You can have peace that passes all understanding when you TRUST in GOD to work everything out for your good.
This too shall pass, and at the end of the trial and test, you will be a better for it, you will see the hand of GOD in it, and you will KNOW this infallible truth, that all these things, good, bad, ugly and beautiful, worked out for GOOD, for you, because GOD DID JUST WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO!
DO you believe this? Then act like it, and lean on His everlasting arms, rest in His love and be at peace with yourself and circumstances, KNOWING that all is well with your soul, you are not alone, and GOD is at WORK in your life, always!
