Happy Tuesday Everyone,
The scripture for today is Romans 8:28
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
This is one of those wonderful Bible promises that we often claim when confronted with some unpleasant trial or calamity. The application is larger than that however. No single event or situation in our life stands alone. It is but one piece of a much larger reality of who we are. And, no single Christian life stands alone. It too is but one piece of a much larger organism. The sum of all of life's events and all of our lives collectively are working out God's purpose for all of us together. God is good and His purpose for us is good. We can be confident that as another stroke of the brush is applied to the canvas of our lives, God is the artist who is at work. As our lives are surrendered to Him each day, He is forming us into the image of His dear Son. And, all that God allows to impact us, on any level, will ultimately work together for our good. For our life is "hid in Christ in God" (Colossians 3:3) and in Him good always prevails.
God bless you as you continue in His service.
