Romans 8:28 - And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.
So can He? Can God really do it? Can He really cause everything to work for our good? Such an awesome scripture of hope, that even if we're in a bad place right now, the Lord IS going to have good come from it if we're His.
So many studies have been done on this scripture, in part because so much comes against us and we need someone or something to give us hope. Only God can turn our messes into masterpieces. With that in mind, looks like I'm going to have a lot of art work lying around, 'cause there's so much overwhelming me and coming against me right now. The Lord led me to this passage this am when I asked for a scripture of hope for what I'm facing right now.
God has a plan and a purpose for each of our lives. Don't doubt Him. He can make something good come from your situation. Don't spend your time trying to figure out what God is going to do. Just make sure you recognize it when He does it.
He cleans up our messes. Don't go by what you see ... go by what you know ... your God loves you and will never leave you. To God be the glory that delights in His children and wants to pull us from our ashes.
Lean on the Father ... He can be trusted.
Prayer: Thank You, my Lord, for the stillness of Your presence. It quietens the storms that are within. I pray that You help us all to hold on while You are working everything out to bring us victory over the enemy. Help us not to grow weary.
