And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. (NASB)
It’s 2011, last year was a year of waiting and waiting and waiting, it’s also a year of resting, a year of planning and a year of favor from the Lord. There are prayers and questions that remained unanswered until now, plans that never happened, things that I couldn’t understand. There were good and bad things happened, we cried, we laughed, we worried, we doubted, we hoped. Last year was indeed full of surprises and challenges but the Father sustained us all through the year.
This verse reminded me that I do not have to know or understand everything and that God works in everything whether good or evil. This does not mean that He rejoices in evil but He is able to turn everything for our good. I’ve come to realize that God is not working to make me feel good or to make me happy but He is working to fulfill His purpose that I may have joy in everything. When life seems tough and everything seems like going against me, this is the verse that i lean on and the promise that keeps me going.
