And we Know…

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

Are you overwhelmed? MP900385327

This scripture is just one of many that bring me back – makes me centered in the times of feeling overwhelmed. Note thought that this is given for those who love God and who are called to His purpose. The question I would ask is, do you love God?

Could there be purpose in your trials? Yes; there is a plan and a purpose for everything in our past, present and future. God is the creator of all; nature and of us.

Not only is God in control of nature, but He’s in control of our lives. None of us chose our birth date or birth place. Nor did we choose our parents. We didn’t decide upon our talents or our abilities. God chose all of those details which makes us His. And…He did so with a purpose.

We do have freedom to make decisions, but we don’t choose the consequences of our actions; God does. Although God calls the shots; He’s not a dictator. He created us to have a free will because he creates and sustains everything.

The world may be telling you one way and God may be guiding you another. What way are you going to choose? Your problems do have purpose. God causes your daily junk to work for His glory. Not one thing in your life is wasted.

O Sweet Jesus, take all of our trials to bring us into a closer relationship with you. May our stress cause us to become more dependent upon You. Amen.living by grace
