Good day everyone! I was led to this message for everyone to reflect on and wanted to share in hopes it encourages someone.
Sometimes it just feels like our lives our falling apart. The world seems to come crashing down on us, and we just can’t see anything good. In times like this we need to ask the Lord to help us. To help me to see how He bring good things from bad situations and to see the goodness that is following us. And know that He is always with us and we can trust that He can use all things for good and to help us to be able to see the good He is doing. Have a wonderful day as you remain in His presence. Love you.
“Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” Psalm 23:6
Maybe you been going through some really rough times. If so I pray that you open God’s Word during times like these. The above verse should really speak to me today. David wrote that goodness and love would FOLLOW us, not lead us. While we go through things that are unpleasant, or seem to be devastating, we can trust that God’s goodness and love are following us. He is with us, and He can use ALL things together for the good of those that love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
While you might be going through a tough time, know that it won’t last forever. You can take heart knowing that while in this world we have troubles, Jesus has overcome the world (John 16:33). Know that God loves you no matter what. While life isn’t always a bed of roses, we trust that something good comes out of every situation. Thus, goodness follows us.
It’s sometimes easier to focus on the situation at hand, the devastating news, or the unpleasant circumstances, but when we look forward to see what God can do through the situation, everything becomes more tolerable. When I look back on my walk with the Lord I realize that some of the worst times during my life brought about the best things in my life now. Goodness has always followed me, even when in the worst of times. My guess is that the same is true for you. You just might not realize it yet.
Are you focusing on the unpleasant situation you are in, or are you looking forward to see how God might be using this for good?
