Day 1: Focus – see God at work in your circumstances

Sometimes lifes cicumstances leave us without adoubt that God’s hand was in it whilst at other times we wonder if indeed God was involved.

Yet as Paul writes here we can have confidence that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him!

Sometimes, maybe quite often we just have to trust that God who sees all things is going before us (v. 27) even when we don’t see it ourselves! In these times we can say with absolute confidence that “all things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to his purpose”

How might we see what happens today, this week, month and year that God is working things out? The psalmist writes in Psalm 34:7-9 that we are to take refuge in him and that we who have experienced His goodness can trust in Him totally. This year when life’s circumstance throws things at you lets learn to take refuge in Christ and lean on him! To trust that he is working things out for our good! Remember the things that try to take us down ultimately only lead to make us stronger in our faith!

Father, help me this year to see you in the circumstance of life and especially where i don’t undestand to trust you that you are working things out for my good. Amen.
