💫 ❤️ His Good Purpose 💖
🌞 Randy Alcorn, in a book he has co-authored with his wife Nanci, offers some insights. He quotes the NAS translation of verse Romans 8:28 : “God causes all things to work together for good.” Randy points out that it doesn’t say each individual thing is good, but that God works them together for good.
🙇♀️ Recalling his boyhood days, Randy tells how he often watched his mother bake cakes. One day when she had all the ingredients set out — flour, sugar, baking powder, raw egg, vanilla — he sneaked a taste of each one. Except for the sugar, they all tasted horrible. Then his mother stirred them together and put the batter in the oven.
🙇♂️ “It didn’t make sense to me,” he recalls, “that the combination of individually distasteful things produced such a tasty product.” Randy concludes that God likewise “takes all the undesirable stresses in our lives, mixes them together, puts them under the heat of crisis, and produces a perfect result.” Let’s look beyond our immediate circumstances and remember that God has an ultimate good purpose. — Joanie E Yoder
Though I do not know the reason,
I can trust, and so am blest;
God is love, and God is faithful,
So in perfect peace I rest. — Anon.
The growth we gain from waiting on God is often greater than the answer or result we desire.
