All Things Work Together For Good

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

Everybody is going to go through somethings that don't make sense. For instances losing your job,home,health issues and marriages and relationships. So we start to complain and grip and wonder why is this happening to me. I shouldn't be going through this. We do this because we do not have a full understanding and full knowledge of the word.

We are not going through a depression or a recession,this is the wrath of God. Even though we are Christians we have to go through the storms also. See God is tired of the way the earth has become corrupted,and people depending on man instead of Him.

Romans 8:29
For whom he foreknew,He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son,that He might be the first born among many brethren.

God's ultimate purpose for us is to grow more and more into the image of His Son. He wants to mold,shape and transform us into Godly,righteous and Holy Saints.

Romans 12:12
Rejoicing in hope,patient in tribulation,continuing steadfastly in prayer.

So as these trials come we should be joyful and thankful,God is working in our life,he has a plan and purpose.

James 1:2-4
My brethren count it all Joy when you fall into various trials,Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work that you may be perfect and complete,lacking nothing.

Perfect-being without fault
Complete-Full
Lacking nothing-having need of nothing

When one door closes,God has another door for you to walk through something better.

The difficulties and challenges are merely stepping stones toward your brighter future.

This was a message that God gave me. I just wanted to share it cause there might be someone who right now feels that there is no Hope that God has forgotten about them.

I pray that this message will uplift someone and give them Hope.

  1. I'm OFTEN sharing this Scripture with many:

    "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD".

    Repentance is necessary and with that a changed heart and life directed BACK TO GOD and while the nation always cries out GOD BLESS AMERICA is the nation blessing GOD?

    Thank you for your sharing. Bless you!

  2. Hi Stephanie,

    Oh this is funny. I have to share what God just did. I read you encouraging post. My eyes searched for the line that jumped out at me. Here it is:

    When one door closes,God has another door for you to walk through something better.

    My computer sometimes makes these random noises. As I read this statement again, the computer make the sound of a door opening and closing. lol. Tell me God isn't picking on B in a loving way. Just now I heard the door sound again...opening...it did not make the closing sound. Our God is tooooo much. I have a great Hope. It is in Jesus Christ. Thanks girl. You are a blessing to Him and me. B

    So glad I came across your place early this morning your post is so good,true and encouraging! I'm amazed at how many Christians think we are to be spared from suffering but suffering is all a part of our walk with Christ,and God will surely cause "All Things To Work For Our Good! Truly enjoyed your post.
    Love you Stephanie
