“What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]” (Romans 8:31 AMPC)
People have agenda's, some open and some hidden, and people love conditionally. We're human and we're flawed. No matter what situation we find ourselves in God always wants our best and He will show us how to get to:
"We are assured and know that [[a]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.” (Romans 8:28 AMPC),
We may not see the good, the situation may not even be good, it might be painful, but God has promised that it will work out for our good. All we have to do is go to Him. Trust Him. Lean on Him. He will show us what to do and what to say.
Sidenote: When you can't see the good or believe that there's no way any good can come from what you're going through ask God to show you the good. His Word is truth so you can believe His promise that it will work out for your good.
“But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.” (Isaiah 54:17 AMPC)
God can heal our broken hearts, mend our wounds, soothe our disappointments, bridge our disagreements, defend us from attacks, and show us the best way to move from victim to victor. Only He can do these things for us. He will always show us the truth.
Some questions to consider:
Do we really want the truth?
Will we apply the truth even when it hurts?
Are we willing to do it God's way?
It really comes down to this question, do we trust God to work it out for our good when we can't even see any good in the situation?
Lord, we thank You for Your Truth! We thank You that You are always with us. We thank You that everything will work out for our good and Your glory when we stay connected to, and directed by, the Living Vine, Jesus Christ! We rejoice because we have the victory! In Jesus' Name. Amen!
“Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.” (Romans 8:37 AMPC)
God will work it out for our good. When we do our part, He always does His part. We can count on that no matter what challenges we may face.
Be Encouraged! ❤
