All Things Work Together For Our Good

Everything isn't always as it seems. There is another reality that the natural man cannot ascertain because it must be discerned spiritually (1 Corinthians 2:14). It is the realm where God lovingly orchestrates all life, which He created (Genesis 1-2). It has always been God's plan for man to live in perfect peace and harmony with Him (Genesis 2:8). However, man fell from God's grace through Adam's disobedience (Genesis 2:16-17, 3:6). Thankfully God, from the beginning, prepared to redeem man (John 1:1-5). "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestined us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, (Ephesians 1:3-5). In order for man to see God's hand in his life, he must walk by faith not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Keep Faith Alive

No matter what happens to you in this life, keep faith alive. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1) It is the ultimate reality that underlies all outward manifestations of things hoped for. Whatever it is that you are hoping for, don't stop. Keep your faith and never stop believing, especially in love. "Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant. It is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; it does not take into account a wrong endured. It does not rejoice at injustice, but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail]. Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening] (1 Corinthians 13:4-7). "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).

Don't Let Anything Or Anyone Move You

"Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord [always doing your best and doing more than is needed], being continually aware that your labor [even to the point of exhaustion] in the Lord is not futile nor wasted [it is never without purpose] (1 Corinthians 15:58).
