All things work together for good

 

It is sometimes hard to understand why we have to go through difficult situations in life. If it were up to us, we would elect to avoid these situations. For those that trust in God, there should be no fear. God is in control of our lives and even though we don’t understand what we are going through, eventually we will understand that things we experience in life work together for our good. Romans 8:28 declares, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are the called according to his purpose.”

In the Bible, David was a shepherd despised by his brothers, but he defeated the giant and eventually became the beloved king. Joseph also was envied by his brothers but God made Joseph ruler over all of Egypt and his family. Moses was destined to die along with all the other babies but God used him to lead His people out of Egypt and into the Promised Land. These people were not born into royalty. They endured very difficult situations in life. David overcame through praise and worship. Joseph overcame by standing and living according to God’s word. Moses overcame by following God.

All of us can be molded to fit God’s plan for our life like all of these great men were if we would just follow their example. Hebrews 13:15 tells us: “é Let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually é” Praising God will get us through difficult times. Psalms 119:11 tells us: “é Thy word have I hid in mine heart that I might not sin against thee.” Leaning on God’s Word will make us strong and show us the way. In Matthew 4:19 Jesus said: “é Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” If we follow Jesus, everything will work together for good and we will fulfill our mission according to God’s will for our life.
