All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28)

Are bad things happening in your life today? If you love Jesus, Don’t worry because it isn’t over yet. I love this scripture because even when your situation looks really bad, God can make good things happen. As a matter of fact, if it is bad then God is not finished because all things work together for good for those who love Him.

I will never forget one time when finances were so bad we were about to get our house foreclosed on. All the bill were past due because the church had not been able to pay me for a couple of months. I knew that if we didn’t have money in the bank by Tuesday at noon it would all be lost. We needed $2500 which was a lot of money at the time. (It still is!) We prayed about it but we didn’t tell anybody. Several days went by then Tuesday came. Nothing. About 9:00 I got a call from an aquaintance. This lady asked how things were going and I said “fine”. She said, “I don’t mean in general, I mean financially.” I told he we could use a little hlep in that department.

She asked if she could come over for a cup of coffee. I agreed and thirty minutes later she was sitting at our table. After about 15 minutes of small talk, she blurted out “well, how much money do you need?” My response was “I can’t tell you that but why don’t you ask God what you need to do.” She had already gotten her checkbook out. It was a small eternity while she conferred with her Maker. Suddenly, she began writing, tore the check out and handed it to me. The amount astonished me, no one had ever done anything near this for me. The check was for $2500. The exact amount we were praying for! In addition to the money, the timing was perfect. We were able to get it into the bank before everything crashed. God is good.
