And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
Yesterday, we discovered that God doesn’t have any preferences. He does, however, cherish connection with His own—God maintained a deep bond with His people throughout the Bible. And as of right now, the family of God now includes everyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Each of the children of the heavenly Father is someone with whom He longs to establish a close relationship. By conversing with Him in His Word and in prayer, we are able to experience this closeness. Intimacy results from a growing friendship that helps us comprehend God, His Word, and His desire for our lives on a deeper level. He begins to shape us into His likeness as we spend time with Him and submit to Him. Then He acts through us, and we serve as a mirror for Him to people in our immediate vicinity (Matthew 5:14-16). Don’t let yourself be content with only being spared from anger. The Lord calls every one of us to step forth in trust and commitment as He longs for us to know Him deeply. He wants us to be like Abraham, who is lovingly referred to as God’s friend (2 Chronicles 20:7).
Lord according to your love let everything work together for my good. Amen.
