EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
One of God’s promises we can cling to during some of our deepest trials is Romans 8:28. He promises to work ALL things together for our good.
When we are called according to God’s purpose and we love Him, He will work in our trials and bring about spiritual blessings to make us more like Christ. Think about the ability to be Christ-like. Do we strive for that? He also helps us to bear the fruit of the spirit and deliver us from strongholds of sin. Memorize the fruits of the Spirit to keep them ever before you in a day.
“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control…”
Those who are in Christ are distinguished from unbelievers in that they have been gifted with the Holy Spirit, enabling them to bear fruit.
God’s gifts to us do not just come from Him but they are always found through Him and in Him. Intimacy with God through Christ is the source of our every good.
Psalm 16:2 says, ” apart from Him we have no good thing.”
May the Voice of the ever-present One shout louder than any other voice you ever hear. May it be the one that directs you, comforts you, and loves you when you need it the most. May it direct you through every trial you face, give you the wisdom to know He is always working and that He never stops! He never lets go of you.
God is the ever-present One who cares for us when the weight of the world presses in on us. He leads us through the trials. Let us each praise the God of our creation.
