Psalm 67 vs 8-12
Praise God, all you people, let the sound of His praise be heard. He has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping. For you O God tested us, you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let men ride over our heads, we went through fire and water… but You brought us to a place of abundance.
Whatever you’re going through in your life remember this:
- A) You’re going through it, so keep moving.
- B) God can bring some great things out of a bad situation.
I look over situations that I see as ‘storms’ and I put much prayer into them…
Then after a short time, I stand back and look amazed at the wonderful things that God does through those difficulties. Things that seemed impossible. He can bring beauty out of ashes.
No hard time is ever wasted.
Look at those verses again… “we were in prison, men rode over our heads, we went through fire and water… BUT YOU brought us to a place of abundance.”
When you pray, God is working. You may not see immediate results yourself, but be sure of this, HE IS WORKING… and He will bring you to a place of abundance.
He often takes prayer requests from years ago and somehow weaves those answers now into situations that you never thought possible. God’s timing is perfect. His plan is perfect.
Keep praying. Keep thankful. Keep trusting.
“For in all things, God works for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.”
A daily devotion for a better way of living.
