THE WAYS AND WORKS OF GOD IN OUR LIVES
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
Isaiah 55:8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Focus: God knows how to use all things to accomplish His purpose in our lives.
GOD wants us to understand, that the incidents which occur in our lives must never be our masters, only our servants. The word ‘work’ indicates productivity, and the word ‘all’ tells us that our profit will be one hundred percent. Therefore, we can gain priceless principles from our painful problems.
God is a Master Weaver; but while some weavers use thread to create cloth, He uses trials to create character. In His Mind, even before He begins to work, He has already seen the beauty and perfection of the finished product. That ‘product’ is your character.
God skillfully weaves the good and the bad situations which occur in our lives to accomplish His wise purpose. There are no coincidences; everything happens for a DIVINE REASON. Furthermore, God cannot make mistakes. He knows how to blend pain and pleasure, disappointment and delight, gloom and gladness, to create a masterpiece which reflects His own Character.
Through the good times and the bad, God is faithfully at work using every incident whether big or very small, to obtain His unique objective. Whether significant or ordinary, He uses every circumstance, for God does not waste anything. Truly, God’s Ways are perfect, and His Wisdom is marvelous.
Through it, ALL, the good and the bad, God says, “TRUST Me, and continue to BELIEVE in My Great Love for you.” He has solemnly promised that whatever happens, no matter what, He will cause it to work for your eternal good. Truly, God makes all things beautiful in His Time.
