God Has The Purpose

"And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to all those who love God, and to those who are called according to His purpose" Rom 8:28.

There are many folks out there that think that a bunch of cards got shuffled with good and bad stuff on them, thrown up into the air, and that this is how their lives work out. Today's verse tells us otherwise...The seasons of life are purposeful. God always has a purpose! Those that are Christians believe that life is not a series of random events that have no meaning, purpose or interconnection... There are certainly some things in life that are not beautiful. Sometimes we must stop to consider that the the hard things, the bitter things, the hurtful things, the triumphs and the victories can all work out for good. It does not say that they all feel good within their season, but they can result in good. If we are growing in the seasons of life, God will bring good things out of all our experiences, and it will be for His ultimate glory... After the writer of the Book of Ecclesiastes says that there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven, (3:1) he goes on to list some 28 life experiences that may be a part of our seasons of life. There are things in our attic or garage that have probably been there so long that they have outlived their purpose. Maybe only nostalgia keeps them there, and if they are eventually thrown away, they're usually quickly forgotten. Why? "There's a time to keep and a time to throw away" (V 6)... God knows that if fertile productive soil will turn into a desert if there is only sunshine. He knows that we need rainy days in our life as well as sunny ones for life to be productive. God has a time, a season, and a purpose for everything, so the seasons of life will be abundant...

Have a wonderful day... Go about doing good... Love mark Phil.4:11
