When you love God, and when you know He is calling you, you’ll reap this Benefit: God works ALL things together for good!.
God Will Make Something Good Out Of Your Problems If…
Isn’t it great that you can know truths about Godâ€™s waysâ€”including His promises to help you? (Some people actually believe we canâ€™t know any truth!) And isn’t it fantastic to realize that Heâ€™s working for your good to give you His very best?
God never wastes an experience. He can take what seems to be an absolute â€œtrain wreckâ€ of a lifeâ€”and use it for His purposes. He didn’t cause your problems, but He allowed them to happenâ€”for reasons you may not know until youâ€™re in heaven. The fact is: He saw your train wreck coming before He created the universe!
Godâ€™s plan is to strengthen you for His work. Heâ€™ll take your mess and make it your message. He will teach you things through adversity that you would never learn unless He allowed some rain to fall into your life. These lessons are far more bearable when you know God has so much confidence in you that He allows them to happen. The â€œfireâ€ of the adversity you are in may be hot, but Godâ€™s hand is on the thermostat! He knows exactly how much you can stand.
Job put it so nicely:
But He knows the way that I take; when He has tried me, I shall come forth as goldâ€ (Job 23:10)
This is the process God uses to make us more like Christ, so we can do Christâ€™s work.
