As we observe the times our heart cries out to the living God,
"How long oh Lord will you allow the darkness to prevail?"
But then we remember the words of Paul...
Romans 8:28 "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called to His purpose."
Colossians 1:16-17 "For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things were created through Him and for Him.
And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
The Lord's creative will and purpose is always presently working.
Throughout American history we observe the superintending
Providence of Almighty God in the lives of people.
George Bancroft, the "Father of American History pointed out,
"That God rules in the affairs of men is as certain as any truth of
physical science...nothing is by chance, though men in their
ignorance of causes may think so."
As you mediate on the good and perfect plan God intended, my prayer is that you will remain encouraged and emboldened to live out God's Truth. Reasoning from the scriptures into life reminds us of God's providential hand in the lives of men and women individually and collectively to accomplish His purposes.
I pray you will be strong in the Lord, putting your trust in Him and walk in the power of His might.
Go therefore and share your inspired life with others. They will be encouraged by your faith.
