A Plan Beneath the Obvious

Last week when I was at the National Prayer Breakfast in DC, I was reminded of the Bible verse that says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
It’s a pretty astonishing promise for those who are pursuing God, for those who love him.
Well, here was my thought: there’s a plan beneath the obvious; there’s a future that our circumstances cannot overcome.
No matter how many setbacks we face, how much bad news we get; however severe the illnesses we struggle with or how deep the rifts in our relationships, the default setting for the life of those who love God is eventual blessing.
So, if you’re facing a setback today, be assured that God is bigger than your circumstances and is able to weave a blessing through time to bring you closer to him in the end.
