Devotions with Pastor Jason Lim
Do you realize there is dust floating all around? Although it's invisible to our naked eye unless light projects upon it, every dust particle's track is ordained by the Lord. God is absolutely in control. Why? Because He oversees all things - big things, small things, nice things, and even unpleasant things - including dust!
We wish life was made up of all pleasant things. But, we must realise that there will be unpleasant things that will happen, yet they are also within the authority of God. Paul writes in his epistle, "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." (Romans 8:28) Notice that he doesn't say "some things". neither does he say "and we know that 'many things' work together for good." This is what he says: "ALL THINGS". What is all, you might ask? All refers to everything! In other words, everything that is happening today, God is orchestrating it all for your good. Nothing in this life, nothing in this world is left to chance. It is all within His sovereignty. What Romans 8:28 is also saying is that all things work together for good. The good and the bad come together for a common goal and purpose. This might be hard for us to grasp, but God is amazing. He is able to arrange all things to work together for MY good! And let me say this, not just for my good, but for all those who love Him and who are called according to His purpose.
God is orchestrating so many things at the same time, for all times, for your good - things that you do not even realize, for they are in His hands. When the world seems to be falling apart, realise this: God is holding your life together.
