Every detail in our lives… is worked into something good.Romans 8:28 TM
Did you hear about the little boy who complained to his grandmother that things were bad? He was in trouble at school, his dad forgot his allowance and his best friend went fishing without him. His grandmother, who was baking a cake at the time, listened patiently, then asked him if he’d like a snack. “Sure,” he replied. So she said, “Here, have some cooking oil.” “No way!” he said. “Well, how about a couple of raw eggs?” “Gross!” he exclaimed. “What about some baking soda?” she asked. “Grandma, those are all yucky!” he said. “Yes,” she replied. “On their own, all of them seem pretty bad, but when you put them together, they make a great cake!”
Sometimes you ask God for one thing and He gives you another, because, while you think you know what you want, He knows what you really need. The truth is, God knows more about what you need than you do. Listen, “He knows us far better than we know ourselves… That’s why we can be so sure that every detail of our lives… is worked into something good” (Romans 8:26-28 TM).
Did you hear that? Everything that comes your way today will have His fingerprints on it, and be designed for your good!
