For You and For His Glory

“And we know that in all things God works for the god of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” - Romans 8:28

We have spent the last few days talking about the help that is on its way. No matter where you find yourself in life, through the toughest of times and hardest of circumstances, if you are a believer, you can rejoice; help is on the way. This is a promise God gives us through His prophet in Jeremiah 33.

When God sends help, He is going to do two very specific things for you. Jeremiah 33 tells us of these things, that not only apply to the people in that day, but to us now. God is going to better your personal life, and He is going to act on your behalf. Let’s talk about both.

First, God is going to improve your personal life. What might this look like? It could be a number of things. He might remove a toxic person from your life. He might give you a promotion to give you more influence in the company. He might bring someone into your life that gives you the perspective and challenges you to grow in your walk with Christ. Our God is a creative God, and He can work in a number of ways. But just know, however He decides to do so, it will make your life better.

Second, He will act on your behalf. Whatever it is that you are struggling with that you just can’t overcome, He will step in. When God says help is on the way, He means He is on the way. He will do whatever He must to get you to the destiny He has designed for you. As long as you are faithful in pursuing that destiny, God will make sure nothing stands in your way.

And why does God do this? He does it for you, because He loves you and wants the very best for you. And in doing so, He will be glorified. There are situations God allows you to get in, so that you learn that you cannot get out on your own. You need Him. And that is where He comes in. He does it for you, and He does it for His glory.
