  • God Does Things For Us, Not To Us

    "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

    No doubt we are all familiar with this passage of scripture. It is used often to be an encouragement to someone who is experiencing a trial or difficulty in their lives. It also tells us that no matter the circumstance God is doing something for us and not to us. It is not a failure, it is an opportunity. It is an opportunity to firstly trust the Lord for deliverance. It is also an opportunity to grow, to exercise our faith and to encourage others.

    When we turn adversity into opportunity we show the world that we have faith in whatever God is doing in our lives. This also applies to the church family.

    We have been taught to trust the Lord, live by faith and look for better days and take advantage of the opportunity God has put before us.
