I bring you today's word of encouragement from Romans 8:28 "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them."
Note that the bible did not say all things are for our good. This is because God knows that the enemy plants tares as we journey through life. Nevertheless, He is able to work the unpleasantness, the bad and the ugly to our good.
The word 'work' is an action word used when putting things that naturally are not the same to produce result.
You'll hear a chef say something like "I'm trying to work these ingredients together"..meaning ideally they do not match but with his/her culinary skills (s)he can work out something good.
As believers, we need this understanding that with God being our chief chef, he works all our life's experiences together for our good.
If all that happens to us are good then, 'there would not be a need for God to work'. In order words, He would not be in the picture of our lives because all things are good already.
On the contrary, all things aren't good so we need His workings in our lives to turn all things to be good.
Growing up, I remember my mom making delicious meals using various leftovers from the fridge. I never doubted the outcome whenever she does this because I trusted her culinary skills. The same way we ought to show our trust in God regardless of the 'ingredients' he is using, then he would cause all things to work for our good and prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies. Remember Samson? what was supposed to kill him brought him honey.
Listen Sis, your experiences from January till now are not all good but best believe, they are working for your good. Don't halt the process of this working by unbelief.
Loads of love,
