“To all who are loved by God and called to be saints: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.”(Romans 1:7) INDEED, “We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”(8:28)
Come with me to a city of silk-weavers around you in reality or imagination. Come particularly with me into a unique section of their sheds. Look at the brocade that is on the loom. To the untaught, the many coloured warp and woof seem only chaotic, a meaningless crossing of coloured threads.
Turn it over, and look at the front side of the finished fabric. It is beautiful, a tasteful design of men and trees, flowers and mountains. The work in progress was confusing and out of meaning though, but the end product has meaning and of great purpose. When our lot appears puzzling to our eyes, remember that we do not know what design God is working to. For each thread, bright or dark, has its function, and each change of pattern follows a prepared plan.
What matter if life’s experiences seem disorderly and we cannot grasp what they are all about? God’s Word assures us that all things without exception work together for our good. Remember, God’s gifts and call are irrevocable. (Romans 11:29)
CONFESS AS FOLLOWS:
God is on my side. God is in me now; who can be against me? He has given unto me all things that pertain unto life and godliness. Therefore I am a partaker of His divine nature. (2 Cor. 6:16; John 10:10; 2 Peter 1:3,4; Rom. 8:31)
