Topic: All Things Are Working For Your Good [Wednesday January 24th, 2018]
“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 (KJV)
As we climax the age, you will notice an unprecedented increase in the activities of the enemy. Today, when you watch television or read the newspapers or even surf the internet, it appears that evil is on the increase. You will notice that things that were hitherto considered secret and forbidden to be spoken about openly are now being advertised. The devil has literarily gone on a rampage. Things are unfolding at a very fast rate to the point that you will begin to ask yourself: what is God doing?
Like I have taught severally, the events in the world today have not come to our God as a shock. The things that are happening in your own life are not strange to Him either. God does not react; neither is He bereft of ideas or wondering how to bail you out. No! In fact, all things; including your current situation, are working together for your good. The Bible says in Jer. 29:11 that His thoughts towards you are thoughts of good and not of evil to give you an expected end – a hope and a future. If I put Romans 8:28 in my own words, I will say: “ALL THINGS are working together for your glory”.
The Apostle Paul said “for our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2Corinthians 4:17-18 KJV). Can you see that! What you are going through now will give way to glory. The message translation says they are small potatoes compared to the coming good times! Beloved, God’s word is not void of power, the truth is that there is a glory that God has prepared for you and I declare that you will partake of it in Jesus name.
