The ingredients in a cake must be “worked together” and then placed in a hot oven. The cake must always remember that the cook is using ALL of these THINGS to transform them into a Great Cake.
Rev. Mike Jones
And we know that ALL THINGS work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Rom 8:28).
Sometimes it is a challenge to find the “Good” in the ALL THINGS that God allows into our life. Here are a few thoughts to help you see the Glory of the Good in the ALL THINGS.
1) Because I am a Christian ALL THINGS should be viewed from a different perspective: (2 Cor 5:17) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, ALL THINGS are become new.
2) The ALL THINGS in my life allow me to show God at work in my life: (Titus 2:7) In ALL THINGS showing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine showing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
3) One day the ALL THINGS will end and God will wipe away all tears from our eyes: (1 Pet 4:7) But the end of ALL THINGS is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
4) In the meantime God has given us the ability to deal with the ALL THINGS that come our way: (Phil 4:13) I can do ALL THINGS through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in ALL these THINGS we are more than conquerors through him that loved us (Romans 8:35-37).
