TODAY'S WORD 4U 2DAY

Learning from David (1)

‘All things work together for good to those who love God.’ Romans 8:28 NKJV

It's not over until God says it’s over. Look at King David's life. He fails time and time again, even while he’s a leader walking in the middle of God's calling. Right after he does something truly horrific and thinks he’s got away with it, 2 Samuel 12:13-14 shows God coming to him with unexpected grace. David’s story is a warning to the wayward, a rebuke to the self-righteous, a reminder of God’s justice – but also, crucially, of the fact that His love that will never let go of you. Give it a read today if you haven't in a while. You have no idea what good God might be bringing out of your mistakes. You don't know what God's planning to release in your character through the lessons you learn in failure. The uncomfortable thing is, this all applies to everyone else too. When others go morally bankrupt, or betray their relationship with Jesus, you never know what God may have planned for them. If you rush to judgement when someone does something awful, you could be rushing ahead of God's plan for them. And even if His plan turns out differently, His heart is always for their good. Grace is always amazing: not just when it's for us, but when it's for others too.

What now?
Is there something that's got you wondering 'could God have left me for real this time?' Put it into today's verse from Romans, and pray it to God. So, you could say, 'God, I trust that you will bring even _____ together for good for me.'

Esther 6-8, Rom 11:19-36
