You may have tough things happen to you. You may have trials, you may have worries, you may have really serious problems pop up today.
Jesus promised us that He loves us. He promised us that He’d never leave us. He promised us that He’d always be there.
But He never promised us a rose garden. He never promised that things would always be easy. He never promised that we would not have our share of problems.
Like I tell folks in sermons, I wish I could promise you unicorns and gum drops. That’s not the case, though.
But you know what? It’s all good. Even in the problems, even in the pain. Even in the worries. It’s all good. You know why?
Listen to these words from Romans 5:
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
The trials you go through today, God is going to use them for you good. The troubles you face, God is going to use them for your good. The problems that plague you today, God is going to use them.
It’s all good.
Everything you go through, God will use. Everything that happens, God will use. Everything you deal with, God will use. Everything.
There is no wasted experience, no wasted trouble, no wasted trial. Everything is something God can use. Everything.
So, today, in your life, just remember. It’s all good. God is going to use everything for a great purpose.
May we give Him everything in our lives. And may we be blown away by the ways He uses it all.
