Morning Thrive - "All Things Together"

 "All Things Together" 

Hey everybody!  We’re talking about how God is for you!  How can I know God is for me?  The answer is, I know God is for me because He’s promised to make all things work together for good in my life.  Here is what the Bible says in Romans 8:28.  And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.  In other words, God is at work in your life, and God is working things out to a determined end.  We’re not just living in random chaos, bouncing around, reacting to the things that happen in our lives.  God’s got a purpose.  God’s got a program.  God’s got a direction.  God’s got a plan, and He’s working all things together for good in your life.  Now, I didn’t say that all things are good.  There are a lot of things that come into our lives that are bad.  You may have suffered a lot of misery, hurt and pain.  People may have disappointed, used and hurt you in the past, there’s a lot of that.  Here’s the beautiful thing!  If you love God, and you’re called according to His purpose, that means you’re trying to live for Him, God makes a promise that He will even take the pain of your past and turn it into something beautiful.  He will take the trash of your past and turn it into a masterpiece.  He’ll take the mistakes and errors of your past, and He’ll make it into something that glorifies God.  Isn’t that wonderful!  Listen, God is for you, and no matter what you’ve done in your past, it can never change how God wants to use you and what God can do through you if you trust Him.
