I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been frustrated with a person or a situation, only to find that it was the very means God was using to meet my need or to do a work in someone’s life.
It reminds me that we have a loving Father who is always doing a good work (John 5:17) and there is nothing that happens in my life that He can’t use for good when I trust Him with it (Romans 8:28).
By faith I have this confidence, that some way, some how, it’s all good when I live for Him (2 Timothy 1:12).
Standing on this truth is how we can do 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18:
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, [and] in everything give thanks.”
The verse follows, “for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
My attitude should reflect that.
I repent. #perfectourlove
