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.
For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Moreover whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified.
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
In devotions this morning, God, as always, was faithful and gave just what I needed.
What circumstance in my life would I change if I could? Am I frustrated? Worried? Angry?
Then it’s time to accept and submit.
If I want peace and contentment, then I have to choose to accept that God has allowed it and keep my eyes, my focus fixed only upon Him.
Next, I must choose to submit to Him, Who is trustworthy and unfailing. It is impossible for God to make a mistake of any kind, any size. He is all good!
Charles Stanley advises that we say to God, “This is painful and I don’t like it. I choose to submit to You…I’m willing to perservere until You accomplish in me whatever You want. I choose to draw from Your strength for everything I need.”
Then we can be assured with this most wonderful thought…
“Your fears will lose their power”!
2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us
the spirit of fear;
but of power,
and of love,
and of a sound mind.
