It’s easy to trust God’s purpose for our lives when things are going great. But when trouble and struggle come? Well, that’s when the big questions about God’s purpose come, too. Suddenly, it’s difficult to see how God can have a purpose for any of the things we’re going through! Rather than give into discouragement in those moments, remember this verse. In it is a truth that will always carry us through hard times: God is working for our good... always! When bad things happen or hard times come, we can know that not only is God still working (though it might really be a mystery to us), but God is with us in it and through it all, too.
To help remind yourself of this, write this verse somewhere you’ll see it often this week.
