Romans 8:28 His Purpose!
Romans 8:28 (NIV)28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
God is working in our lives to fulfill his purpose. Rely on God for your decisions and listen to his wise counsel. The word “purpose” suggests a deliberate plan; something planned in advance. How is God working through you and your issues of life? We can depend and rely on him to do what he promises, even when the events in our lives don't appear to have his loving hand. The real issue is whether or not we choose to truly love him and live for his purposes when life becomes unbearable and faith becomes hard. This verse is the life long hope for those with faith who choose to persevere when there is no apparent reason for doing so. Faith is rooted in a Savior who triumphed over death, rose on the third day while we find ourselves caught up on the problems of today instead of acting in faith.
Prayer...Dear Lord, Give me courage, and faith. Let me know that your hand is in all things and work for the purpose of Your plan. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
