It has taken many years for me to discover the difference between the life that I have in the Lord and my life situation. My circumstances are continually changing and, because of judgments and conditioned ways of viewing them, I have a wide range of opinions about them.
My life in Him never changes because He is the same yesterday, today and forever. No matter what is happening in and around me, I can trust Him in the midst of it because of the way He makes everything work for good in my life.
By embracing every event that happens with a grateful heart, I am putting my faith in Him to work in me according to His good pleasure. I don’t have to understand why something is happening because deep in my heart I have an abiding confidence that it is a part of something much bigger than me.
If a door closes and something comes to an end, I know that He has a purpose for it terminating. My objective in every situation is that I will love Him more deeply than ever before.
