I read recently that God has paid us,
His believing children, the highest compliment possible.
Taking a closer look at Romans 8:28-29 I see it:
"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God,
to those who are called according to His purpose . . .
For whom He foreknew, He also predestined
to be conformed to the image of His Son . . "
Isn't God saying here:
It's been my plan all along to work ALL things out in your life;
the good, the bad, the heartbreak,
all the things you don't understand why they're happening,
for one reason:
I am conforming you to be like
my Son Jesus.
I know you don't understand.
I know it's not easy.
But I'm in control.
I want what is best for you.
I want you to be like Him
Because He's the best.
