All things for Good? yes when you believe
Many people think that all things are not for good, as they the works do not measure up to what they expect them to be.
Many think that good things should be better than they are.
Have you ever thought about something that has happened in your life and it should have been better, so would you call it good or bad?
You may have had a great job you the only one who could do it, then all of a sudden you find yourself out of work, so you had something good now does it mean that it is bad?
As we all go thro life many good things do come our way, we enjoy what comes, and if possible we may be able to share with others.
We all can't have everything in life come good for us, but we could have, if there were no sin ion the wo0rld, because this is how God wanted it to be a sinless world, but now because of sin many things come our way, many things that we don't want, so now the bad comes with the good.
Praise God that we have Him to watch over us, because when bad things come on us or come our way He can use that bad thing to make it good for us.
Romans. 8:28. "We know that God is always at work for the good of everyone who loves Him. They are the ones God has chosen for His purpose, and he has always known who his chosen ones would be, He had decided to let them become like his own Son, so that his Son would be the first of many children."
Many of us go thro many things that we think should not happen to them as we are a child of God, we still get them but why? God has given us the choice to do all things, if this was not so we would be like puppets, God gave to us a free mind, so its up to all of us to use our minds the correct way, the way that God first wanted us to live.
many have the loss of a good job, some have very bad physical illnesses, some go thro bad family troubles, and some of the bad things that come to us are direct result of evil.
We need to remember that none of us have been promised by God that we would be immuned from any bad things.
Every day we have to put up with so much bad things that come to attack us.
Nevertheless, good can come out of bad! This verse promises that God uses all the circumstances of our livces-both the good and the bad-to shape outcomes that accomplish his purpose for us.
James 1:17 "Every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father who created all the lights in the heavens."
God can not give to us anything that is bad as nothing in him is bad as all things in God is GOOD.
When you feel you are going thro a bad situation always remember that God can use that to bring the good out of it for you.
You may have had a death in your family, you may have lost your job, you may have heard some very disturbing news.
We can be sure that there will be one good thing will happen for God's children is that, 'When our Lord Jesus returns we will be gathered up to meet Him'.
2nd. Thessalonians 2:1.
