Key Words: all things work together for good
Have you ever had times in your life when you really had a hard time figuring out how the things in your life were working for your good? I must confess there have been times when I have asked the Lord, “Lord, how can this be for my good?” But, you know, on every occasion God’s Word proved itself true.
Like the man who was shipwrecked but managed to reach an uninhabited island... there, to protect himself against the elements and to safeguard the few possessions he had salvaged, he painstakingly built a little hut from which he constantly and prayerfully scanned the horizon for the approach of a ship. Returning one evening after a search for food, he was terrified to find the hut completely enveloped in flames. Yet by divine mercy this hard affliction was changed into a mighty advantage. Early the following morning he awoke to find a ship anchored off the island. When the captain stepped ashore, he explained, “We saw your smoke signal and came.” Everything the marooned man owned had to be destroyed before he could be rescued.
I have a saying that goes...”God never does things to us; He always does things for us.” So it is in your life today. God is working all things out for your good, and I might add, for His glory.
