Life In The Real World

We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.
-Romans 8:28

THERE IS A saying that the only two things in life that are certain are death and taxes.  That saying appears more true everyday, but there are more certain things than even taxes - God’s faithfulness. 

God shows up in a real world and he doesn’t use tricks.  He’s not a magician, a good luck charm, genie or the State Farm agent that if we say a jingle, He appears.  But, He is always there, “closer than a brother”(Prov. 18:24) and “a help in time of trouble” (Psalm 46:1).  Romans 8:28 didn’t say that God is in heaven, kicking back and listening to His iPod or taking a leisurely stroll down the streets of gold.  He is WORKING for the GOOD of those who love him. 

Prayer Starter
Lord, in an uncertain world and uncertain situations, You are always faithful.  Help us today to notice how close You are and that You’re working for our good today.  Open our eyes that we can see Your hand in every situation we face.
