Everything will be okay!

This summer and the beginning of this school year God has taught me something. That with God, in the end, everything will be okay. In fact, it will  be the best possible outcome for both God's glory and for myself. 

Deuteronomy 31:8 - The Lord goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

Romans 8:28a - And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him

There is a worship song that I really like called Your Love Never Fails. The bridge of this song says "You make all things work together for my good." The first time i sung this song I winced at these lyrics. Its not for my good, but for God's! Then I really started thinking and concluded that the only thing that is good for me is to glorify God. If my God and Savior is pleased, then that is all that matters. God's plan will always be accomplished. It has to be. He is God. And if God chooses to use me to accomplish this, even if it is something that looks harmful in the world's eyes, I can be sure that everything will be okay in the end. 

Ephesians 3:20 - Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us

Exodus 14:13-14 - Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you just need only to be still."

So when i am struggling with something or don't know what to make of a situation, I know exactly what to do. I will lay it before God and give it over to His plan, and then rejoice in knowing that if God is handling it, everything will be okay! 

I Peter 5:6-11
