Devotional 2/3

And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

Every experience in your life is being orchestrated to teach you something you need to know to move forward.

Brian Tracy

God created us so that everything would work for our good. He even arranged our personalities, nationalities, families and environments so that these details would benefit our lives. The Lord even used our looks with a specific ingenuity.

In God’s perfect plan these details and attributes would all have a reason for being! The Lord’s desire is to orchestrate our lives according to His plan, but evil and our evil nature have been a major influence. The Lord does not cause negative things to happen in our lives, but like the story of Joseph He does use them for our good.

The Lord created Adam and Eve and organized their world. The Lord did not desire for Adam and Eve to sin, but the Lord used their fall to redeem His people from hell, by promising that the Savior of the world would come from Eve’s womb. When the Lord anointed Saul as king of Israel, He orchestrated it so that Saul would be filled with the Holy Spirit in a certain place at a certain time with certain people. God didn’t cause Saul to disobey Him, but it worked out for Israel and the world. The Lord Jesus came from the lineage of David, so God’s plans were fulfilled. We are now living in a time where the Lord wants your life to show people that He wants their souls to be saved, and that you are awaiting the Lord’s return.

There are plenty of stories in the Bible of loss and redemption, sin and repentance, arrogance and humility: the Bible also shows us that God can use all the miscellaneous details. God can glorify Himself in your setbacks and turn it all around. The world is waiting for the manifestation of the children of God: you are a child of a God!

God can use your life, all of it, and fit it into His perfect plans. He can shift your lives from walking in worry and fear to walking in love, in power and in faith. Your history, your mistakes, your failures, your bad decisions, your ignorance and arrogance will all work for your own good!

Let’s pray:

Father God, thank you for our story. Thank you for being Wisdom. You are the architect of our lives,you are the sovereign God. Thank you for giving us peace with our past, with the disappointments, the mistakes, the loss, and all of the past. Thank you for making us Joseph’s. Thank you that nothing is able to separate us from your love. Thank you for continuing your plan in our lives. We are eternally grateful for your mercy, and faithfulness. In Jesus name, Amen.
