TRUST GOD TO WORK IT ALL OUT

“We know that to those who love God, who are called according to his plan, everything that happens fits into a pattern for good.”(Romans 8:28)
God is working out a pattern in the fabric of our lives that’s going to be beautiful. It all fits. But sometimes from our point of view it looks like a jumble, a mess. We look at our lives and think, “How can anything good come out of this?”
I used to worry about the source of the problems that come into our lives a lot more than I do now. Is this problem from the devil? Is this problem from other Christians? Is this problem from the Lord? Is this problem something I’ve brought on myself?
The longer I grow as a Christian, the more I think I understand that it doesn’t really matter the source of your problem. It doesn’t matter if the devil brought it on or other people caused it or if you caused it yourself. God will still use it. God has a way of overriding our big mistakes. He works them all out.
God wants to take your greatest failure — that area of greatest failure that you want to hide and keep secret — and He wants to turn it into your greatest strength. He wants to make a life message out of it. What is your area of weakness?
Whatever it is, that’s what God wants to work on, if you stop regretting, and stop having a pity party and let Him work in your life.
