All Things = Everything
When life and circumstances bombard you, can you still believe that all the issues you may be facing are working together for your good?
It can be difficult to trust that God is making it all come out good when it’s so bad!
God guarantees us that even sickness, disappointment, money woes, relationship issues, and loss are all working together for our good.
Isn’t that remarkable? You could be experiencing the most difficult time in your life, but because you love God and are called according to His purpose – He’s making it all good (Romans 8:28).
The beautiful thing about serving God is that you will experience some tough situations, but He’s always right in the fire with you! He promised to never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5).
So, What’s the Play Call?
Team, here are a few things to remember when experiencing tough moments in life:
Faith is essential. Belief and trust in God must be at the forefront. “And without faith, it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6 NIV)
Try not to be so blinded by the obstacles to the point that you can’t see the blessing of the season you’re in. God wants to draw closer to you – continually invite Him in and watch your perspective change.
Ask for wisdom! God wants to give us wisdom. He invites us to ask for it, and He will give it to us freely. “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” (James 1:5 KJV)
Last, but certainly not least, allow the circumstance to mature and grow you! Don’t just go through stuff – always seek God for the lesson. Be intentional in your prayers and in your daily walk with Christ. There is always something to learn and some area of life we need to mature in. Read, meditate, and believe God’s Word – it’s our manual for life!
“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)
