All Things Work for Good

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

This is such a powerful promise that I think many of us overlook.

No matter what we are facing, no matter how dark the clouds that surround us, we know that every trial and every pain that we are experiencing will work out for our good in the end.

Praise God!!!!

Only in the hand of the infinite God of love can mourning be turned to praise, can tears be turned into laughter and sadness be turned into joy!

We may not know when or we may not know how the thing that we are facing will work out for our good, but let us trust to what God has promised and know and believe that it will.

Keep trusting Jesus. The end is at hand. Let us be ready to spend eternity in bliss with the Saviour.

Not My Will

Matthew 26:39

Jesus was at the point before He went into the most severe test that He could face. He would bear the sins of all humanity on himself.

How could He and how would He bear it?

Many of us find ourselves facing unbearable experiences. How will we ever be able to face them?

We must pray the prayer of Jesus in Gethsemane- “not my will, but thy will”.

If it were up to us, many crosses and trials that we are called to bear would be avoided. But, like Jesus knew, He must take that path for the good of humanity.

Many times we have to take certain paths, for our best good, even though we don’t see or know how it would be for our good.

How is suffering for our good?

How can pain be for our good?

How can death be for our good?

Only in eternity we will see. Then like Paul says in 2 Corinthians 4:15-17, we will realize that these are light afflictions and they will work out our eternal good.

2 Corinthians 4:15-17
