Each time I listen to this 2 minutes podcast “God Works All Things for Good” by TUA | Tony Evans on #SoundCloud, it reminds me that I am the one that God has invited to come to Him in Romans 10:13 and Matthew 11:28. I am the one invited to live a life of peace and joy in the Lord.
When you listen to this clip by Dr. Tony Evans and you take a look at this pantry, you will come to terms with God’s promise to us in Romans 8:28.
It says, “We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose” .
Just like Dr. Tony said, none of the ingredients required to bake a cake are by themselves enjoyable and edible. You don’t eat a stick of butter, you do not deep your hand in sugar and pour it in your mouth. Most of the things you have in your pantry are of no value to you independently until you add them or mix them together and at that point all things are working together. Your milk, sugar, flour, etc add up to become a cake because they are working together. Glory to God! That is our inheritance as God’s beloved children.
Brothers and Sisters, it doesn’t matter the situation you are in today, all things are working together for your good. God knows what’s going down on the job. God knows what’s going down on your finances. If you have been retrenched, believe that God, who makes all things work together for good, has a better job for you. You’ll be delivered, you’ll be blessed, you’ll come out on the winning side. In other words, things always work out well for you, because you pray daily in the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:27). God can make bad things, bad situations, bad people work together for your good. In other words, the devil may throw lemons at you, but God can take those lemons and make refreshing lemonade for you! Jesus said nothing is impossible and nothing shall be impossible to us. Therefore we can do all things. All things work together for our good. It doesn’t matter the situation, all things are working together for our good.
I don’t know where you are today…are you in the desert place? Financial desert place, emotional desert place, a marital desert, a spiritual desert, a family desert, a desert with your children, a place of barrenness? Refuse to be bitter, God has orchestrated it for a purpose. You can shout like Job did and say, yet will I trust Him (Job 13:15) because all things will work out together for my good. If you’re a believer, the Bible says all things are working together for your good – not that all things are good, but that they work together for good. There’s no difficulty, dilemma, defeat, or disaster in life that God can’t ultimately turn towards good. God is watching over you.
When the pressures of life seem to beat you down, don’t cry, don’t give up, you can go to God in prayer, in the wonderful name of Jesus. And when you go to Him and pray in the Spirit, or pray in other tongues you could say, then all things will work out for your good. Hence, ease, relief and refreshment comes to whoever calls on the name of the Lord. Don’t give thanks for what the devil has done to you, give Him thanks for His Word, for the opportunity to see Him at work, and for the fact that you know God can make all things work together for your good.
God can take the tears of yesterday and transform them into the miracles of tomorrow. He can restore to you in all abundance what you have lost. He can cause all things, even the painful events of your past, to work together for your good. Today, I pray and declare that all things will cooperate because you are praying. God’s perfect will about that situation will come to pass. If the weather has to cooperate, then it will. If other people have to cooperate, then they will. If money has to cooperate then it will. If you have been relegated to the back seat, he will bring you to the front row. All things must cooperate to benefit you. As you pray, God will come in and manipulates anything or anybody, or does whatever is necessary, in order to bring a benefit to you.
Beloved of God, because you have been born again, all things in your life will work together for good. When you do what God says, favor is the result. When you do what He says, things will work together for your good. The Scripture says for those who love God, all things work together for their good (Rom. 8:28). His thoughts for you are of good and not of evil, to give you an expected end. The expectation of the righteous shall not be cut short. It’s all going to work together for your good. He can never leave nor forsake you. He is with you always till the end of time. He has graven you in the palm of his hands. That delay, loss, situation, challenge, problem, issue, is for a purpose. What the enemy meant for evil, God will turn to your advantage. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
And remember God loves you.
