And we know that all things work together for good
to those who love God,
to those who are the called according to His purpose.
LORD Jesus we praise You for You are above all — all powers and in all life’s situations. Nothing surprises You. Forgive us, O God we pray, whenever we doubt that You are in control. Help us to see Your mighty Hand and Work in everything. Enable us to study Your Word diligently and to trust and obey it all the days of our life. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.
Stefan and I are putting together a jigsaw puzzle which consists of pieces that are not like the pieces of any other puzzle we have ever worked on before.
The pieces of any other jigsaw puzzle are usually perfect in their shape. These look very much out of line to us. Take a look at the picture and you will see what I mean:
Whenever Stefan put a piece next to the other, I told him: “That one does not fit! It cannot fit! Look at the ones that surround it.” But he has proven me wrong. They do, indeed, fit. “The pieces of this puzzle are just different,” he said.
There are situations in our life that look so very much out of place. At some stage life began to be very different, and it was nothing compared to what it used to be. Then we started to wonder if this could really be a part of God’s perfect Plan. How could something so out of line fit into an overall beautiful Picture? We thought to know that the current hardship could never work out for the good. Yet, we should believe that God is still in control. No, we must remind ourselves and know that He is!
Love God and know that He is able to work all things together for good today.
