Good and bad times

114x114-Repple-Minute  Good and bad times

When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, a man cannot discover anything about his future. Ecclesiastes 7:14

God is sovereign and orchestrates all events to bring you into the right relationship with HIM. You do not know anything about your future. All things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to HIS PURPOSE.

God allows both good times and bad times to affect everyone. He blends them in our lives in such a way we can’t predict the future or count on human wisdom and power.

Do you give yourself credit when things go well and blame God in bad times? God disciplines those HE loves. HE uses the perceived bad times to shape your character into HIS likeness. Have you built an attitude of gratefulness for the trials, tests, problems and circumstances in your life?

When life appears certain and controllable, don’t let self-satisfaction or complacency make you too comfortable, or God may allow bad times to drive you back to HIM.

When life seems uncertain and uncontrollable, don’t despair. God is in control and will bring good results out of tough times.

“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Eph. 3:18-19
