We are well aware that God works with those who love him, those who have been called in accordance with his purpose, and turns everything to their good.Romans 8:28
In secondary school, this verse of scripture was woven into the school prayer – which we all used to pray daily during the assembly.
It became a sort of recitation amongst the rest of the prayers.
But it was not until the 5th year of secondary school (yes, 5 years went by!) that I actually understood this scripture and it’s personal application to me.
At the time, I was struggling a lot with managing my school homework, tests and co-ordinating my personal study time effectively.
One particular day as I feeling really overwhelmed, I was complaining around a group of classmates.
Then one of them spoke to me asking me why I was fretful. She reminded me that as a child of God, that He was working all things for my good. She then specifically quoted this scripture verse, making reference to it in the context of our school prayer.
That day, my life changed!
The Word of God came upon me and broke through all my doubts and I finally understood that God’s Hand was ordaining everything for my good!
Alleluia! Our God is a great and mighty King!
LORD Jesus, I believe You, help me to believe You even more.
My God, I trust in You, help me to trust You more.
My Saviour, I love You, help me to love You even more.
You are God Who is in control and ordains all that concerns me. Thank You for Your marvellous love and Your endless gifts of grace.
I am grateful LORD, for every good gift and perfect gift comes from You, the Father of Light, in Whom is no variableness neither shadow due to change.
Praise You, our GOD!!!
Always & Forever,
To the Lamb,
With all my ❤
