comfort: romans 8:28

By May 17, 2019 Script the Word

So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.

~Romans 8:28 (TPT)

“EVERY DETAIL OF OUR LIVES.” Not some details. Not a few details. Not even several details. But every detail of our lives. They work together… all things. Good. Bad. Ugly… uglier. You know what I’m talking’ about. All of those things you share. All of the things you don’t. They ALL work for your good. Even the most difficult of circumstances/situations.

Three things:

  1. All things work for His good… it may hurt… it may be the most painful experience you’ve ever had, but ALL things He takes and spins to allow you a testimony of His goodness and glory… and He expects you to tell of His goodness.
  2. This promise, this comforting promise, is for those who love Him. Let’s lay down some prejudice and offer up this free gift we have been given, and KNOW that we are not the ones who decide who get to love and serve the Lord. We are simply vessels humbly used by a God who is all kinds of good.

We are called, good/bad/ugly, to fulfill our God-given, predestined purpose for this life. And if you ever doubt whether or not you actually have a Kingdom-purpose… remember this– As long as you are on this earth, living this fleshy, sinful; albeit God-chasing life, you have a plan and a purpose that only YOU can fill.  

Take comfort in knowing that you don’t have to go it alone. We serve a God who is:

Omnipresent… All present.

Omnipotent… All powerful.

And Omniscient… All knowing.

Take heart, friend… YOU ARE NEVER ALONE.
