” And we know that all things work together for good to them who love God, to them who are called according to His purpose”
God knows I love me some sweets. Sweets are my weakness. I will eat them all day, every day and even before my meal or as a substitute. Oh and don’t let me get a sweet tooth, it is OVER. I’m not supposed to eat homemade cakes or any cakes for that matter due to my gluten allergy, but when my sister makes a cake I just have to have a piece or two. I used to love to make desserts and now I just let my sister make them. Depending on what you are making it may require a lot of ingredients and you will definitely need to know what you are doing. People that really know how to cook will add their little flavor to it, but there are certain main ingredients that you have to have in order for it to work together the way that you want it to. If one of the main ingredients is left out it is guaranteed not to work . It is easy to quote and
pull out our favorite parts of the scripture, but if we leave any of it off the scripture will not work no matter how many times we quote them. So in order for things to work for our good we have to #1 love God. How do we love God, by accepting his Son, keeping his commandments and by the life that we live. “Actions speak louder than words” # 2 to them who are called according to His purpose. HIS PURPOSE which means that it has to line up with his will and not ours. Can God turn it around for you? Absolutely , but you have to meet the requirements (do your part) in order for it to all work together for your good. Just like making that cake, if any of the main ingredients are not added or if they are taken away you will not produce the cake that you want. If you are looking for God to turn something’s around in your life examine yourself today and make sure you’re not leaving anything out.
