“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.”
Romans 8:28-29 NKJV
Some of us from time to time we may think about our future. Maybe it’s a goal or a desire that you haven’t seen fulfilled yet and the thought keeps nagging you. It feels like at times you missed the opportunity or the setbacks put you off track. Maybe it was a relationship and things didn’t work out like you wanted it too.
When our future looks bleak and we ask, “What is my purpose in life? Why am I here? I just want out! Am I any good to anybody? It all looks so hopeless.” We are looking at our world system credentials, our world system status as a person, and for the encouragement that comes from the world.
It isn’t your responsibility to plan your future. That has been planned before your life began (remember He saw every day of your life before you were born). You are being conformed to His image. Every incident, every setback, every disappointment, every unexpected tragedy are to be used to further His purpose of conforming you to His likeness in your life and in my life.
It may seem that God’s plan are interrupted but hold fast to the promise that God is working behind the scenes. And to believe that all things work together for good for those those who love God.
