He knows us far better than we know ourselves… That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. – (Romans 8:27-28, The Message)
And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. – (Romans 8:27-28, NIV)
God sees us and He knows us. For those of us who have decided to seek Him and invest our hearts in Him, He leads us by His will, and calls us according to His purposes. No matter what comes our way, He can work things out for good. Though it may take a very long time for us to be made aware of the good, we can trust that God can do immeasurably more than we can see or imagine when we choose to trust in Him. May we choose to rise up and walk by faith, trusting that His love will lead us, and that He will be faithful to fulfill what He has promised to do, as He works out ALL things for the good of those who love Him.
God placed a desire;
to know and be known,
As we pursue Him,
trust God with our lives;
He uses all things,
for good, hope revives.
His love will lead us,
to where He has called;
faithful, He’ll meet us,
may we give Him all.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You know us far better than we know ourselves. Thank You that You take every detail in our lives, good, bad and everything in between, and work it out for Your glory, when we trust in You. Forgive us for our fear and lack of faith when there seems that nothing good could possibly come from our circumstances, and teach us to trust You more in these moments than ever before. Show us again how You work out all things for the good of those who love You and are called according to Your purpose. Lead us to love others in the same way that You love us. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we trust You to work out all things for good, because You are faithful. Amen.
The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. – Psalm 145:8
