Today's Daily Devotional

We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

06/15/09 Do you really know that in all things – whether happy or sad, joyful or tragic – God is working for the good of those who love Him? Have you looked back on your life and seen God’s finger and footprints all over your circumstances – especially the most painful ones? I have. Maybe I notice Him most in the painful times because I’m really looking for Him! I thank Him that He has answered my prayers to be able to see Him in the midst of any circumstance. I used to think that He would use pain to focus me on Him, so I began to ask Him to reveal Himself more clearly to me in the good times. He delivers beautifully with sunrises, sunsets, cool breezes and quiet moments with Him in His Word. He didn’t remove the pain, but He’s taught me that the pain has a purpose – even if I don’t know what it is.
