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
It’s funny how you can read a scripture over and over again and some words never seem to strike you as important. My husband and I have been going through some trials (who hasn’t, isn’t or won’t?) and this is a scripture I’ve been reciting to myself lately. It wasn’t until I read it today though that I caught that word together. It’s like it jumped out of the page. How exciting is it that every moment in our lives, every trial and every success works together for our good. This means that everything in your life-every regret, every joy, every victory and every failure is working for your good. It’s one thing for them to all work for your good, but when it’s revealed that they all work together for your good it’s a whole new ballgame. Seemingly insignificant things like a stranger smiling or being cut off in traffic
work right along side with those hugely significant moments like the birth of a child or loss of a job for the good of the Christian. This is good news. This means that those things that you thought were nothing but mistakes have a purpose. Those things that you feel regret over will work to your benefit. The Lord showed it to me like this: medicine may taste bitter or sting, but it works together with your body to heal or recuperate when injured or ill. Testings and failures may be bitter and full of sorrow, but they work together with joys and successes for the health of your spirit. I pray that this encourages you the way it encouraged me. There is no moment too insignificant or small. Every day is an appointment, there are no accidents in the kingdom of God. Each moment is used to work together with other moments for your good, and for the glorifying of Christ.
