God is Forever, No Trial Is
-- I was reading the Word one morning and God began to talk to me about
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the
good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them
(Romans 8: 28).
God began to show me some things in this one verse.
This verse is a promise from God. He never breaks a promise! This verse is
comforting. It offers an assurance and a certainty that in spite of all the
craziness of life we know that God has it all under control.
This verse gives us knowledge about God and His intent for our lives.
This verse gives us hope.
If you look deeper it requires faith to believe it. It forces us to dwell
in a state of faith. We have to have a walk of faith in God because the Scripture
says it's impossible to please Him without it.
There is assurance that not only are we called -- we are called to His purpose,
not a meaningless life of dead ends and hopelessness.
This verse gives us security.
This verse offers a spiritual reward. If we do His will and love Him He causes
all things to work together for our good.
This verse is about LOVE.
God again shows us, as He does through thousands of others in the Bible,
that HE IS A GOD OF LOVE! He has our interests and our future and our good
on His heart and He intends to make it all happen according to His will and
There are seasons of plenty in God and seasons of lack. He says He will never
leave us or forsake us. In fact, right now as I am writing this and you are
reading it, the Holy Spirit is praying for us, and so is Jesus!
Look at these two verses also from Romans 8:
And the Holy Spirit helps us in our distress. For we don't even
know what we should pray for, nor how we should pray. But the Holy Spirit
prays for us with groaning that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father
who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads
for us believers in harmony with God's own will (Romans 8: 26-27).
Who then will condemn us? Will Christ Jesus? No, for he is the
one who died for us and was raised to life for us and is sitting at the
place of highest honor next to God, pleading for us (Romans 8: 34).
Have HOPE! God is forever, but no trial is. God is eternal, but seasons
are just that, seasons. It certainly can't be all bad if the Holy Spirit and
Jesus are interceding for us right now! Hey, at least you can rest in the
fact that their prayers are heard and answered.
God loves you and I and He wants us to realize and know it's all under control,
no matter how it looks or seems. Rest in that today.
