All Things Work Together

Recently this writer had another experience that was not wanted, liked, desired etc.  What do we do with that?  Back to the Word.  We dont have to like it or understand it, we just have to be patient and faithful.  Why.  What does the Word say?

Rom 8:28And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,h for those who are called according to his purpose.

Prov 3:5Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.

Isa 55:8For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
9For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

When things we do not want or like or specifically prayed would not happen, happen anyway-we need to remember the above.  Our God is loving and faithful.  He knows what He is doing and this nobody who writes to you today can testify that in time, with patience we will see the "why" behind  "what" the Lord allowed or did.

We need to stay in a place of thanks, praise, and rejoicing.  Yes, we do that in spite of the things we do not want happening all around us.  We get to choose what we focus on.  All of us have something, somewhere at sometime that we can focus on to give thanks for.  Most of us have alot of things to be thankful for.  As for those things we do not like, we can pray the Lord's own Words over it-we know that even this thing we do not want and do not like will somehow some way work out for our good if we remain patient and faithful.

glory to God.

grace and peace
