God is in control and everything will be fine

"We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
Romans 8:28

Unexpected things happen to us that are completely beyond our control. At first, when we are negatively surprised, we feel hurt, don't we?

Perhaps you were fired, a person you trusted did something bad and caused you a lot of problems, or an airline changed flights and you had to move your appointments to another date. I could give you countless examples, but you are probably remembering some you have experienced yourself.

What does this passage tell us? It says that if we love God, He has a purpose for us always. Therefore, we can be sure that all things are under His control. Too often, in the rush of everyday life and in the "heat" of events, we forget this absolute control of our Father, who always manages to "orchestrate" things in such a way that we are blessed.

Situations that seem sad or harmful to you may have been a deliverance, for example. So give glory to God in spite of everything.

Don't lose your peace because of frustrations. Don't lose your joy because you planned it and it didn't work out. Don't be questioning so much that revolt takes over your heart.

Trust that God always has the best for you! And the best is not always what you expect. If you gave your life to Him, it was not only for Him to save you from hell, but it was for Him to lead you in victory here on this earth.

Trust in His best plans for your life and your family! The God who is in control of everything loves you too much and thinks of every detail! He tells you, "All things work together for your good!

Prayer: God, in many moments, when something happens contrary to my expectations, I am saddened. But you are in control of my life, and for that I thank you for always taking care of me at all times, even if I can't see the benefits immediately. Thank you because everything that happens, in the end, will revert to other better things. Amen.
