God's Plans Will Stand
A Look at Romans 8:28
This morning, I was reminded that the promises God has given me shall come to pass, even if I don't see the results right away. As the bible says in Romans 8:28: "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."
Knowing that, and keeping it to heart can be hard. It is so easy to be swayed by the deception from Satan, telling me that which I am waiting on will prove unfruitful. It is so easy to become discouraged, blame God, stay mad at Him, because that is what Satan tries to do in order for us to break away from God.
But it is during those moments that I have to stand strong, and take on the victory of Christ, knowing that I am being tested in my faith. Sometimes I must wait on the Lord, because something He has promised takes longer than I thought. I am not a patient person, but I am so thankful that God is! Otherwise, I would probably have been zapped by lightning by now in a moment of God's frustration at my ways.
The way I see it, I have a choice in this day: to whom will I listen? God's truth, or Satan's lies? It's that simple. I can go forward with the knowledge that the way I go forth is protected by the living God; He secures my steps, He hears my prayers, and He will provide blessings in my life that no one can ever take away. I may not recognize them right away, but I must trust God that He will use all my experiences for good. And maybe, just maybe, I am slowly learning to be more patient.
