Working Together for Our Good!



Philippians 4:6-9

The Message (MSG)
6-7 Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
8-9 Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.

Romans 8:28

New Living Translation (NLT)
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.

When we study Gods' Word and something is repeated, then we know it is of utmost importance. In the scriptures above there are many truths but the one I want us to focus on is this, "everything coming together for good, making everything work together, and causing everything to work together for good". For OUR good! It took many years and life changing events for me to see and believe that this scripture is so true. As I look back over my life, I can see where things happened that I completely didn't understand and I would question God about it. Not seeing at the time, but now understanding with all the twists, turns and roadblocks how He was leading me closer to Him.  You know not everything that happens to us are the choices we make, other people are making choices to that will affect our lives, either good or bad. But when we believe this powerful truth, God will use it for our good is somewhat mind blowing! He uses every detail! Some of you may be saying that is not possible. Well, read the story of Joseph as starters, then go on to Paul. From the beginning to the end of Gods' Word, we are shown how Satan, the enemy of God and ours, complete mission is to destroy us and make sure Jesus would never come. And every time, the purpose and intent of God prevailed. No matter what you or I go through, whether it is choices we make or the result of others, He will use it somehow for our good. And as you study to be transformed in His Glory, you will have that peace and grace that is promised. You will know in your heart that a plan is being worked out and will bring you to where He has promised. But you have to be expectant then the worry that is in you will begin to dissipate, because you know the truth.

I pray for you as you read this, that whatever you are going through, you realize you are not alone. God is forever with you, not judging, not condemning but gently and patiently, loving you. May His grace rest deep in your heart.

Blessings to you my sweet friends!
