GOD KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING, TRUST HIM
November 30 Sunday
”And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” Romans 8:28.
Often times, when God has zeroed in on you, it appears as if everything has turned upside down. And if you don’t understand the workings of God, it is so easy to resign yourself to those negative events and circumstances that are happening around you. Because God does not work the way man works, God works differently, you must come to a point in your life when you take a quality decision that you will still trust him no matter what happens, you trust him even when things are not going well knowing that He knows what He is doing. Your commitment to God must be total, no half measure, your decision to serve Him must be complete. You are not in the company of those who draw back unto perdition, your mind is made up, your heart is fixed because you know that God cannot call you, save you and then abandon you. I don’t know what the situation is in your life right now, how rough it is for you, but I can assure you that God is in absolute control, He knows what He is doing and He will surely bring you out, trust Him.
One thing I have learnt about God is that when He is saying nothing, I know that He is still talking; when everything seems to be going upside down, I know He is still at work because the bible says, ‘and we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose”. I want you to know that you have a colourful future. In Jeremiah 29:11 God said, for I know the thought that I think towards you, thought of peace, not of evil, to give you an expected end”. That means the end you are expecting will come. What are you expecting even now? What are you praying about? What is your dream and goal? We have an assurance from the bible that you will attain that goal. The fact that you are still around is an indication that God has not finished with you. I want to submit to you that it is because of where are going, your glorious destiny, that is why it seems that things are turning upside down but wait for the vision, it will surely speak.
Don’t give up, don’t give in, because God will come through for you.
