Turning the Bad into Good

SOURCE:  Living Free

“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 NLT

Once we come to Christ in faith, we begin to walk with God on a daily basis. It is vital that we learn to trust him in every area of our lives—day in and day out.

We can trust him because we are assured that as we love God and commit our lives to him, he works everything—the good and the bad—together for good. We can trust him because he has demonstrated his great unconditional love for us.

We can commit our wayward child to him because we know he loves that child even more than we do.

We can commit our finances to him because we know that he will work all things for good as we follow him and trust him for wisdom.

We can trust our loved one’s health to him because of his mercy and love.

We can trust God to work his plan in our ministry—and his plan is perfect.

Is there an area of your life that you are clinging to—and worrying about—instead of trusting God?

God cares about everything that concerns you. Keep your eyes on him, love him and trust him. He will go before you … He will guide you … He will strengthen you … And he will work all things for good.

Lord, I have been worrying about this situation and trying to fix it myself. My way hasn’t worked. I commit this situation to you and trust you for the answer. No matter how things look now, I trust you to work all things together for good. In Jesus’ name …
