To celebrate the giveaway we're doing with the terrific people at Free Book Friday, each day this week I will be posting a devotional from Waiting with God to give you peek inside this inspiring devotional which was born from my own year of waiting with God.Day 2
“You intended to harm me,
but God intended it for good
to accomplish what is now being done...”
God Intended It For Good
So where should we start on this journey toward a closer relationship with God?
How about right where we are, in God’s Waiting Room? It’s that space in between when we first release our prayers to God and the moment when God answers.
At times, it can feel like the loneliest place on Earth, because it’s just us. Alone with our unanswered prayers.
So let’s start there. Alone and wondering, “Why is this happening, God?”
Whether I’m the one who got myself into the mess, or not, my first instinct often involves asking God for help.
But what about those times when despite our best efforts, we find ourselves in a dilemma that we’ve prayed about but received no answer?
Where is God then?
What can we do when things look bleak and we feel most alone?
God promises us that no matter how dismal the picture, He will take our problem and turn it into an opportunity for our growth.
And an opportunity to grow closer to God.
No matter where you are in your personal relationship with God, I believe that if you will spend the next month walking with God through His holy word, and meeting Him in the quiet of prayer, you will come out stronger, hope-filled, and with a new answer to your prayers.
Let’s start with this outrageous promise from God… whatever you are going through today, God will work it out for your good.
