There are some people who will be content just “being” but some of us have been chosen by God to be “broken”. In our moments of desperation, God is breaking us, but when the breaking is done, then we will be able to see the reason for which we were created. God says, “I had to break you to show you why I created you. You had to go through it so you could fulfill your purpose.”
People often look for “proof” of God. In the words of Billy Graham, “Can you see God? You haven’t seen him? I’ve never seen the wind. I see the effects of the wind, but I’ve never seen the wind.” God is everywhere, all around us, in the green grass, and the blue sky. From the majesty of the galaxies all the way down to the cells that makes up our bodies. Christ’s blameless sacrifice on the cross paid the ultimate price for us. If you are still looking for proof check out Laminin, the cell adhesion molecule the binds all matter together. A reminder of God’s plan set forth at the beginning of creation. “He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:17
We hear Romans 8:28 quite frequently when we are facing taught times. “We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love him…” This is true. Whether it is good or bad, God will use it for his glory. We must also lean to trust him and be content with Gods plans for our lives. “…for I have learned to be content in any circumstance. I have experienced times of need and times of abundance. In any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of contentment, whether I go satisfied or hungry, have plenty or nothing. I am able to do all things through the one who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:11-13. God has a plan for you. While it may be difficult some times, know that it will work out for the glory of God and you can overcome any circumstance when we trust and find contentment in the one who strengthens us.
Nothing can separate us from God’s love. Nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us or nothing below us–nothing in the whole created world–will ever be able to separate us from the love of God.
Remember the words of Roman 13:1
