“And we know that all things work together for our good, for those who love the Lord, for those who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

This Scripture is powerful, and it always blesses people who are dealing with so much as they go through life.

God has a plan to take every adverse moment and every hardship you go through and use it. He’s not going to beat you down and make your life miserable. No, God’s desire is to take that situation and turn it around, and then use it to bring you some type of good. He will use those tough times to bring you out stronger, more mature and prepared for another level of living in Him.

That’s what the Apostle Paul was sharing with the church at Rome. We will deal with uncomfortable moments in life; however, we have to know that the Master is working every difficult moment out for glory.

You may not understand everything that’s going on in your life, but I encourage you to:

  • Keep going
  • Keep being faithful
  • Keep doing the right thing

You need to know that in the end God is going to turn things around in your favor. If God is for you, who can be against you? The answer is, no one. Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.

No matter what’s going on around you this week, you can put a smile on your face, because you know without a shadow of a doubt that God is working things together for your good.
