“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
God has now revealed to us his mysterious plan regarding Christ, a plan to fulfill his own good pleasure. And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth.”
Reading these verses today has given me peace. Why would i worry about the future, when I KNOW that God holds it in His hands?
Which brings me to this verse I like a lot:
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4
Christ is truly the truth, the way, and the Life (John 14:6). I love it that I can trust in this truth. It makes me want to rejoice, no matter what I’m going through. He’s got my back, and He’s got yours, too. All we need to do is trust in Him, abide in Him, like branches on a tree, surrendering completely to His loving Grace. And keeping in mind that HE WORKS FOR THE GOOD OF ALL WHO LOVE GOD. 🙂 What a wonderful thing! Let’s keep our faith in Him, and know that everything happens for a GOOD reason, no matter how dark the situation you’re going through right now is. Know that you will come out of it victorious in Jesus’ name.
God is soooooo Good! 🙂
