Restoring a Life of Purity – One Day at a Time

Read Your Word This Morning?

Posted by Men of Redemption on August 26, 2016

Breakfast of ChampionsWhy is it that sometimes when I read the Word of God I see Bad Things Happen to Good People? I mean, take for example Paul, who used to be Saul. Didn’t he write a little more than two-thirds of the New Testament, and then had to go through so much turmoil, so much hatred, so much persecution because of his faith and testimony of Christ? If we’re doing the right thing why is it that we have all this trouble and struggle if God is leading us? Well, I’ve learned and still learning that there are reasons why we go through what we go through. The thing we need to remember is that God is in total, complete control of all that we do, all that we go through in life if He is our Lord and Savior. Once we have made that declaration, in His Word we will learn that Jesus Himself said that we will have tribulation (struggles, problems, persecutions, etc.) just like the Apostle Paul went through. But if we continue to read our Word, we will discover that God allows these things to take place for our good and it has His purpose in mind if we endure. Know this for a fact: No matter what we go through in this life, always remember that Jesus is right there in the midst and will see us through it no matter what it may be or turn out to be. There is purpose, strengthening faith and perseverance involved that is forming and shaping our character and our being. Continue reading God’s Word, trust Him in all things, and watch His presence proceed you with His glory and power.

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”   –  JOHN  16:33

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.”   ROMANS  8:28-30
