Read Romans 8:28-29.
Sometimes life is tough. Things happen that we just don’t understand. At times like this, we tend to question God’s activity or lack thereof. However, we have a beautiful promise in Scripture that God is making “all things work together for good for those who love Him for those who are called according to His purpose.”
Remember, there is rhyme and reason for the events in your life. God is not absent. In spite of living in a fallen, sin–cursed world, there is a loving God Who has an eternal purpose for your life. Although we may not completely understand the eternal purpose, we do know the earthly one.
God is using the events in our lives to conform us to the image of Christ. He has equipped us with His Holy Spirit and His Word. We are not alone. We can process the events of life through our relationship with Him.
Is there something in your life that makes you question the goodness of God? Are you willing to trust His eternal purpose? Are you becoming more like Jesus?
This devotion is based on Marty McLain’s book “The Crown has Fallen: A Study of the Kings of Judah.”
