TODAY'S WORD FOR TODAY
God Is Working It Out for You
‘…God…calls things that are not as though they were.’Romans 4:17 NIV
You must believe what God says about you, over what everyone else says! Stop listening to those who claim you’ll never amount to anything. You might’ve had a bad childhood, or a failed marriage or career. ‘…Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before [you]’ (Philippians 3:13 KJV). The Bible doesn’t say that we call those things which are not as though they are. Nor does it say others have the power to speak things which are not as though they are over your life. No, it is God, through His Word, Who speaks into existence His will for your life. And you should be glad about that. You wouldn’t want anybody else to have power to determine your destiny. Our responsibility is to line up our will with God’s will. When we do, He empowers us to accomplish what normally would be humanly impossible. The Bible says, ‘…The just shall live by faith’ (Romans 1:17 KJV). Your faith is more important than your performance. Yes, when God decrees something, we get to participate in it. But in every case, it’s God who performs it. The thing you’re worried about performing, God says will be done through His power. Will you experience delays and disappointments? Yes, but ultimately you won’t be denied, for God has decreed it. You say, ‘But what about all my unanswered questions or all the loose ends that need to be tied up?’ It’s ‘a done deal’ as far as God’s concerned. ‘All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose’ (Romans 8:28 NKJV). Relax; God is working it out for you.
