THE GOOD THINGS AND THE BAD THINGS ARE ALL PART OF LIFE
Life is not just made up of good things.
Everything does not just run smoothly.
But God remains good and God remains faithful.
The good and the bad are all part of the rich fabric of life.
Ultimately we are not in control, God is in control and He sees things from a different and an eternal perspective, so embrace every season.
Rachel dies a tragic death during childbirth, but not before a miracle happens and she produces two sons.
Joseph, who went on to save the nation, through a strange twist of good and bad that ended him up in a power position in the then known world and saved his nation.
And Benjamin who was loved by his father and called the 'son of his right hand.'
AS WE TRUST IN GOD, HE WILL BRING ABOUT SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL IN ITS TIME
The end result of this complicated love story comes the greatest story of all.
Out of the line and linage of this family came the birth of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world.
If we will be patient and work hard...
If we will sow well...
If we will rest in His plan and not get discoursed when our own plans don't work out as we had planned...
If we will trust that He has the ultimate plan and that He uses the good and the bad and works them all out for our good...
Then we will see His hand in our lives.
We will see His plans and purposes prevail and we will fit into His ultimate plan which is always the best thing we could have ever hoped for.
In His perfect time He will bring forth something beautiful.
So let us do these things and place our hand in His hand to lead and guide us each step of the way.
If Jacob could look back today, I am sure he would be amazed at what God had done.
We too can expect the same. For God has promised never to leave us or forsake us and He has promised to work things out.
Philippians 1:6 'I am certain that God, Who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished.'
