And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according tohis purpose. ~ Romans 8:28
Recently, one of my friends has been going through a rough time. She is called. She has a purpose. Jesus has a destiny for her. Sometimes though, on our way to fulfilling our destiny, God allows things to happen in our lives so that our chains can be burned away so that we are ready for His tasks.
I truly believe in Romans 8:28. I believe that ALL things come together. In her struggles yesterday, she was texting me and God latched on to something He said through me and used technology to multiple the text. I told her:
[Friend]- be strong. The Lord is your strength. He is your shield. He will uphold you in His arms of love.
I found out today that God had that same text sent to her almost hourly yesterday from the moment I sent it until 11PM last night. All day she was fighting a tough battle. Things flying in from all directions. What I said did not feel incredibly profound to me at the moment. I felt like I was speaking truth but clearly, God knew it was a truth that she had to hear all day. She sees it (as I do) as a miracle.
This is the God we serve. This is my Jesus. That something that I felt was meaningful but definitely not profound enough to send the same text 15 times in the same day, He multiplied and resent to her all day long- to remind her He loves her. That He will uphold her. That He will be her shield. That He is her strength.
Dear readers- know that God loves you just as much! Know that He will also uphold You in His arms of love. Know that He will be your shield as well! Know that He is your strength as much as He is mine, as much as He is my friend’s!
Thank You that You’ll even take a seemingly simple text and multiply it for the needs of the recipient. Thank You that even technology is in Your hands. Thank You that ALL things work together when put in Your hands!!! Praise You Jesus! Thank You Jesus!!!
