There is no doubt that for the wisdom we need during these times, we must refer to God’s word for that wisdom. “Billy, I hear that all the time, but what does that mean?” Search your heart. Reach back in your life and remember the times God took care in providing for you when you could not.
Let’s take a look at a scripture from the ‘book of instruction’. Romans 8:28 says, “We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.” ~CSB
First ask yourself, do you love the Lord? “Come on Brother Jackson, you know the answer to that”, you say. But I ask you ‘do YOU know that? You have to know, that you know, that you KNOW, that you love the Lord with all you heart!
When you know without a doubt then this scripture’s power turns on inside you because the Word is saying, no matter what is going on around you:
It says this as we continue in verse 29, “For those He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son…” We may feel a certain way about certain things in this world but in order for His blessing of miracles to work in us, we must change our perspectives to that of Christ. We don’t live for ourselves; we live for God. We do not strive for our own personal glory; we work to glorify the Lord. When this happens, He glorifies us!
“I don’t know Billy, this is hard to do.” It may seem that way, but God created you with everything you need to do it. Seek Him first and all that He has given you will show itself. He has already made you in victory as verse 30 says, “And those He predestined, He justified; and those He justified, He also glorified.” ~CSB
This text is a foundation of instruction. Do not let it depart from you. As you go through this week recite it day and night. Let it get in your heart and soul so that what is written will reveal to you God’s will for your life. And after you allow this text in Romans to guide, lead, and heal you, do the same for other scriptures God reveals to you. Watch, as the Lord conforms you to the image of His One and Only Son. Then you will, “…prosper and succeed in whatever you do…”
In Jesus name I pray for your transformation into the servant that God created you to be.
May God continue to bless you in strength and wisdom on your journey in Jesus name!
Peace & Blessings,
