According to Romans 8:28 God tells us that “ And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. ” Everyone deals with disappointments and challenges that don’t make sense. It’s easy to grow discouraged and think, Why did this happen to me? Why did my loved one not make it? Why did this person treat me wrong? Even though life is not fair, God loves us very much and he wants the best for us. As he promises in Romans 8:28 that all things work together for our good.
You cannot isolate a challenge in one area of your life and say, “ Well, my whole life is ruined. ” That is just one part of your life. God can see the big picture. Your life doesn’t stop because of a single setback. The challenge you are facing is simply one piece of your puzzle. There is another piece coming that will connect it all. It will work together for your good.
God has promised a great plan for you. He has predestined you to live in victory. When events occur that you don’t understand, hard times that don’t make sense, don’t let yourself be stuck there. God has more pieces coming your way. You may feel like your life is missing something, whether it’s in the area of your finances, your career, your marriage, or your school. But all God has to do is add some to the puzzle, and your life will feel whole and complete.
Those new parts may be the right people, the right opportunities, or the right breaks at just the right time. Don’t be impatient. It’s not over until God says it’s over. If you will keep pressing forward, one day you will look back and see how it all played into a perfect plan that God had designed for your life.
You have to have a deep inner trust, a confidence down in your heart that says, “ I know God has a great plan for my life. I know he is directing my steps. And even though I may not understand this, I know it’s not a surprise to God. Somehow, someway, he will work it out to my advantage. ” God is working all things together for our good. He has a master plan for our lives. There may be things we don’t understand right now but we are not worried. We all of the pieces aren’t here yet. One day it will all come together & everything will make sense. We will see God’s amazing plan taking us places we never dreamt of.
