“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 (KJV)
No matter what you are going through right now in your life, you have a promise from God that He is working it out for your good. However, wait don’t run and shout just yet. When God works things out for your good, His result usually looks very different than what you may want and expect. In your mind, you may assume that God working things out means that you will get what you want, but God is more interested in your character development. That is the “good” He is after. Everything may not go as you want it to go, but if you love God and are called according to His purpose, you can trust Him and His plan. Every test and trial will make you better, wiser, sharper, stronger, and more resilient in your faith in Him than ever before. It will all result in your character being shaped more and more into the image of Jesus. That’s a great victory in God’s eyes! Developed character will always yield the true success you desire.
Prayer: Father, thank You for always working things out for my good. With everything I face, shape my character into the image of Jesus. I love You and I know that I am called according to Your divine purpose and plan. In Jesus name, Amen.
