Day 17

“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” – Romans 8:28

 

Do you ever feel like some days you serve God and live fully in Him and other days you don’t? That’s because sometimes it’s easy to see God working in our lives and other times we feel like we don’t. This is because of a word called, “perspective.” Our perspective is how we see things, not actually how they are. Just because we can’t see God working doesn’t mean He isn’t. When we feel like we don’t see God working in our lives part of our flesh wants to give up living for God. We think, “God I’ve been praying about this for hours and nothing has changed. So I’ll do this my way since your way doesn’t seem to be working.” This is the part of our heart’s perspective that plays tricks on us.

John reminds us though that God is greater than our perspective, even the nagging voice that keeps us from receiving all Christ has in store for us. Remember 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” God is greater and He is faithful.

The reality is that God is working for you. God is madly in love with you and God will never let you go. Depend upon God and live for Him today and every day of the year! It’s so important to stay connected to God every moment of every day.

  • Amen! Our God is always on the move ! Romans 8:28 is one of my favorite verses- I’ve had it attached to the bottom of my emails for years, hoping it serves as a great reminder for those who receive it.

  • Barbara Donovan

    Father help me to stay strong and focused. To remember all things are in your timing. Teach me patience so that I may receive all you have in store for me. I love you. Amen

  • Donna Finley

    Every study that I take focuses on the same principle; looking to God for everything! I want to remember to do this in every aspect of my life and by doing so, loose the fact that I am in control of anything at all!!! Praise God for this fast and being connected with so many other God fearing people. Amem!

    I need friends that share in my experience in walking in faith. I can’t wait to go to the class that starts the First Sunday in Feb. I hope I meet someone like me. God wants us to stay connected not only in his word, but in relationships as well. Time for me to meet people!

    • Yetta Baldwin

      Angelamoe, I understand…. I am in Philadelphia and I attend online. I fly to Palm Beach every other month to go to Gardens campus. I too am looking forward to a time when I can attend the classes and build new relationships. Praying for your journey!
