God has a way of working things out. He sits high and looks low. He sees injustice and abuse. He sees the pain of children with their silent cries. He sees your broken heart and disappointment. He sees beyond what you can see and longs to heal you! Today God is summoning you to draw close to Him for inner healing of your soul. How long will you run or hide from His face? He wants to take away all your worries and anxiety. He wants to make a trade with you. Come surrender your life to Him; He has a way of working things out for you. Whatever has hurt you, God will work it out. Whatever has you anxious, God will work it out. Whatever has you doubting, God will work it out. Whatever has you bent over in grief, God will work it out. Whatever has been piercing your soul, God will work it out. As Joseph told his brothers in Genesis 50:20-21 (VOICE), God is telling you today:
"Even though you intended to harm me, God intended it only for good, and through me, He preserved the lives of countless people, as He is still doing today. So don't worry. I will provide for you myself — for you and your children." So Joseph reassured his brothers and spoke kindly to them."
Today, the Lord wants to speak kindly to you. He wants you to know He is working things out for you. He loves you. Today, I feel the Lord wants you to know that as in Isaiah 61, He is actively doing for you!
Isaiah 61:1-13 (VOICE): "The Spirit of the Lord, the Eternal, is on me. The Lord has appointed me for a special purpose. He has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to repair broken hearts, And to declare to those who are held captive and bound in prison, ''Be free from your imprisonment!'
"He has sent me to announce the year of jubilee, the season of God's (the Eternal's) favor: for our enemies it will be a day of God's wrath; For those who mourn it will be a time of comfort.
"As for those who grieve over Zion, God has sent me to give them a beautiful crown in exchange for ashes, To anoint them with gladness instead of sorrow, to wrap them in victory, joy, and praise instead of depression and sadness."
There is a lady I interviewed (Dee Boyd) for One Voice podcast who was abused as a child, repeatedly raped as a teenager and ended up having two abortions. The enemy had a strong agenda on her life and set out to destroy her, but God! He showed up on the scenes of her life and restored her, healed her and gave her beauty for ashes. He made a beautiful exchange with her.
The Lord saw the brokenness of her life and He reached way down to her pit. Even though He's a God who sits high, He reached low and brought her out of a horrible pit.
Ecclesiastes 3:11: "and I know God has made everything beautiful for its time. God has also placed in our minds a sense of eternity; we look back on the past and ponder over the future, yet we cannot understand the doings of God."
You may not understand what is going on all around you right now, but I want to encourage the body of Christ with these words:
He makes EVERYTHING beautiful in its own time! God has a way of working things out. God has a way of taking what the enemy meant for harm and destruction in your life and working them out to your favor.
God has a way of working things out. He worked it out for Joseph and He will work it out for you. He worked it out for the children of Israel and He will work it out for you.
He worked it out for Dee Boyd and He will work it out for you. He worked it out for Janet Swanson and He will work it out for you.
He worked it out for Peter and Paul, and He will work it out for you.
God is working all things together to those who love the Lord according to His purposes. Take strength today in the Word and God and trust HIM!
