Romans 8:28-33
"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. For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?"

His Purpose is Greater Than Your Problems


In all things God works for the good...

For He knew us in advance.

To conform or to be confirmed

You think He is making this up as He goes along? That this all just happens by chance?


Have some patience under pressure - It doesn’t have to feel good to be God

While He puts you in position for your purpose

Read the story in the Bible about

Jacob, Esau and the pottage of sod

This time last year,

I had just moved back to the Bay

But this time I was different

Like part of my innocence went away.


You know those times in life where you grow up a little

And have to look yourself in the mirror?

Do some reflecting and REALLY ask yourself

How did you get here?

How do you talk to yourself? What do you believe?

About who you are, what you deserve, and everything in between?


I was so focused working on the destination

That I couldn’t see,

While I was distracted this whole time,

He already foreknew the destination..

He was working on ME.


Call me crazy,

But I am just gunna say

Has this transition not also solved some of your problems

In any big way?


Like leave that job that you hated?

Or force you to make amends?

What else would’ve catalyzed you to make you move?

What you choose to focus on NOW is up to you my friends.


What you have in this moment

Is EVERYTHING you need!!

FOR HAD I NOT BEEN AFFLICTED

I wouldn’t know Your greatness in me.


Amen
