All thing to work together for good

rapids

Today’s Verse: 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. NASB

We both have likely endured situations where we were willing to challenge this wonderful promise. How could God possibly use this mess for good, we might ask? When we are in the thick of things, it is hard to see God’s hands at work and even more difficult to see any possible good come from it. Thank God that He has an infinitely better perspective on things than we do! I have seen this promise worked out so very many times in my life, yet I am still amazed when it happens. A new door of evangelism or ministry opens up that would have never been available otherwise. I meet someone through someone else who I never would have had contact with otherwise. How amazing is God’s handiwork in these times. Like all His promises, there are a couple of stipulations. We must love God and respond to His calling on our lives. One of the most dangerous prayers you can ever pray is one that will put you in the mainstream of what God is working on around you. It is the one prayer that will place you in the midst of a powerful flowing river of His will. It is a simple prayer, but one that will change your everydayness of everyday into opportunity after opportunity for meaningful ministry and participation in God’s plan. It is a simple prayer, yet care need be exercised for once you pray this prayer you life will never be the same ol’ same ol’. Lift up your hands and pray simply and whole heartedly, “God, use me this day.”

May God bless your heart as you seek His.

  1. It can be tough to think about how God will use you when your pray that prayer. He may use you in some area where your life may be in danger. The truth is though that there is no better place to be than in the center of God’s will!
    No matter what job he has for me this day, he will be by strength to do it!
