God always has a plan, and even if things go off course or something unexpected happens, He has a way through. It’s why the Bible says, “We are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives.” (Romans 8:28 TPT)
God loves us, and when we allow Him to get involved in our lives and circumstances, He will work good out of them. It may sometimes look and feel terrible when we are travelling through it, but God seems to know how to work miracles out of our messes, make us stronger where we were once weak and bring light into our darkness.
In amongst any difficulties, there will always be Jesus. Jesus, who remains constant, steady and sovereign and who promises He will work all things together for our good.
I’ve discovered over time that even if some of that good may take longer to become visible, it’s in the hidden places that God works to bring everything into the light and out of the dark places to work it all together for our benefit. In the hard places, we are made to shine, much like a piece of coal becomes a diamond only when placed under extreme pressure and heat.
God does not orchestrate our difficulties, but He does promise to work through them and bring fruitfulness through anything we journey through. That promise is regardless of what the world and the devil try to throw or use against us.
This is why you can confidently face today, tomorrow, and your future. For even in the midst of crazy days, you can and will triumph. You are more than conquerors; you are stronger than you think and there is nothing in the universe that can separate or weaken God’s love, care and concern for you. (Romans 8:37-39)
Today I encourage you to reflect on all that God has already done for you and all His promises. Acknowledge the tough places, give any hurt and disappointments over to Him, look for His hand of blessing upon your life and then rest assured and trust Him that He has gone ahead to make a way. And remember if it’s not good yet, then He’s not done yet.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God who are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28 NLT)
Jesus said, “And everything I’ve taught you is so that the peace which is in me will be in you and will give you great confidence as you rest in me. For in this unbelieving world you will experience trouble and sorrows, but you must be courageous, for I have conquered the world.” (John 16:33 TPT)
Prayer: Lord thank you for being with me every step of the way. I give you any hurts and disappointments and choose today to trust that you are working to bring good out of every circumstance and that there are better things ahead. In Jesus name Amen
