Romans 8:28

One of my favorite verses of scripture is Romans 8:28 which says;

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 “K.J.V.”

 

To me this is very good news. This says that it doesn’t matter what we may have to go through, how many hills we must climb, how many heart aches or how many disappointments, whatever we bring upon ourselves, and whatever satin himself throw our way, it’s “ALL” working together for our good. I can think of a few times when God made a bad situation work for my good and His glory within my life personally, but today I want to talk about a man who suffered many advercities, which ALL worked for his good, and the good of his entire family. 

A boy by the name of Joseph was hated by his brothers because he was favored by their father. Joseph was eventually sold into slavery by his brothers, which lied by telling dad that Joseph was killed by wild animals. Well Joseph erned himself a position of being the right hand man, to the right hand man to the king. (Note: God was still with Joseph through the trials). Well Joseph was then accused of rapeing the wife of his boss, after rejecting her perpetual advances. This young man did many years in prison for a crime he did not commit.

Then suddenly, the king himself sent to have Joseph brought directly to hm because of a gift from God that Joseph possesed, and that he stired up. ( God’s word tell’s us that our gifts will make room for us, and set us before great men) Well, on that day brother Joseph, unexpectedly, went from the prison to being second in charge of the entire land.

For those of you who know Joseph’s story, you know that this is just a light summery of a great Romans 8:28 testimony. For those of you who don’t know brother Joseph’s story I invite you to check it out for yourself. You can find it in the word of God (The Bible)  in the book of Genesis beginning in chapter 37. 

I believe that it is our attitude while going through, that determines how long we may stay in that place of darkness and brokenness, nevertheless, ALL things work together for good to them who love God, and if you love God, then YOU ARE the called according to His purpose. So if you are in a season of hardship, REST in Romans 8:28.

LOVE, GRACE, PEACE

Contentment!!!

It’s not easy to be content with present conditions when God has shown you a vision of your future,

but yet, the Apostle Paul tells us that we can be content in whatever state that we’re in… “Philippians 4:11”

See, contentment in this sense does not mean that we must be satisfied in the darkness of our present condition, but rather, we don’t allow that darkness to dim the hope of the light that’s within us… “THE HOLY SPIRIT”

It is possible to allow the power of this light to burn within us to the point where it shine through us, then we are able to see God’s purpose even in that dark present condition.

It’s then that we are able to have peace in the process, on our way to that place of ultimate predestined purpose…

Contentment.

Brokenness is a setup!!!

Psalm 34:18 “K.J.V”

The Lord is nigh them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

 

We all know what a broken heart is, and what it feel like, but a contrite spirit is a spirit that’s chastened, humble, remorseful, repentant and sorrowful. Being a broken vessel does not mean that God has left us to deal with our brokenness alone, because the book of Psalm chapter 34 verse 18 tells us that our Lord is nigh them that are of a broken heart; meaning God is right there with us, watching and waiting to see if we will react according to the hurt and pain in which we feel, or if we will act in chastity, humility, remorse, repentance and sorrow…

If you haven’t experienced brokenness within your heart or your life yet, just continue to live. Brokenness is inevitable in this life, but God allows the situations that cause the brokenness, not to destroy us, but rather to keep us grounded in Him. So when brokenness comes to visit you, remember, it’s just a setup. Know that God is right there in the midst willing to lend His strength so that we are able to, not react to the pain of being broken, but rather act in chastity, humility, remorse, repentance and sorrow. It is this contrite spirit within that will move God to save us out of the pain of our brokenness

So to sum it all up; when we exercise that contrite spirit that dwells within, our brokenness is just a setup for God’s glory to be revealed.

LOVE, GRACE, PEACE
