There is a great True Truth in existence within all of our lives whether we know it or not,…or…whether we believe it or not. Everything that happens to us is predesigned and preplanned by the One who created all of us and the universe in which we now live. I realize that what I have just said is far beyond what most people can grasp or even remotely begin to understand,…but the True Truth of Life goes well beyond the understanding of man’s feeble and miniature mind. You either really believe what I just said or you don’t!…there is no such thing as partial belief. You either believe it all or you don’t! 99% belief is 100% unbelief.
The True Truth of Life tells us that “all things are possible to him who believes.” That being true, so its corollary is also true,….nothing is possible to you if you don’t believe!
The True Truth of Life lives and exists in the spiritual realm outside the physical fleshly scope of where the masses of humanity reside. There just happens to be one single route to cross from the physical side of life over to the spiritual side. This one route is known and called the “Bridge of Faith.” Now the True Truth of Life says that “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the belief in things yet unseen.” Without crossing over this Bridge of Faith and exercising your God-given ability to walk in faith, i.e. believing in the unseen, and hoping for good things to happen to and for you and your loved ones,… then there can be no understanding of the real meaning of life and the things that happen to you while living your life.
Now don’t go jumping to conclusions about the intent or the content of this discussion. What I am telling you is The Truth!…like it or not.
You don’t need to believe in God to believe that there’s real meaning in the events of your life. But there is one undeniable truth to what I am telling you now. Here it is: Everything (people, places, events, or actions) that happens to us, whether it happens instantaneously or over a long period of time,…has or carries within it a real significant purpose and meaning that directly effects us personally and how we live our life in light of the events that have happened to us.
Come with me now as we explore what I am telling you……
Everything going on in your life (activities, people, places, actions, situations, or circumstances) can change for the better, once you personally begin to see and understand that all such “things” have within them great meaning and value to and for you….even when such events or happenings are not necessarily perceived as being good or beneficial at the time of their occurrence.
The manner and way in which these changes or events take place within your life will all be different for every person who experiences them. Their form is not the important thing. It is the fact that they will “all work together for your own good” as long as you understand what they are, who is sending them into your life,…and why they are happening to you!
There lies within every adversity that happens to you, a seed of an equal or greater benefit for you,…if you look for it (that seed) with a positive mental attitude.
I will say to you once again…Everything that happens to you, happens for a specific and very good reason. It is up to you to discover what that real meaning is and how it benefits you.
Everything happens for a reason.
No matter what happens to you, be it good, bad, or indifferent,…
not only does something valuable come out of it,…But,…it is just what you need! It is well for you to remember that even in the worst kind of disaster–there are wonderful gifts, hidden opportunities, or life enhancing lessons available for you to learn from or be blessed by!….And you couldn’t have received them any other way than through the seemingly miserable event that occurred to you.
There are two Scripture verses that come to my mind as I am typing up this discussion. I pray that you may find these verses will add some light of understanding to your own mind.
In the Book of Romans, Chapter 8, verses 28–30, NKJV, the Holy Bible tells us:
(28) “And we know that all things work together for good to
those who love God, to those who are the called according
to His purpose.
(29) For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be
conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the
firstborn among many brethren.
(30) Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called;
whom He called, these He also justified; and whom he
justified, these He also glorified.”
Since God Almighty is your personal Creator. Since He fearfully and wonderfully knitted you together in your mother’s womb. And since He numbered the very hairs on your head and the number of days you will live on this earth, you definitely can rest assured that you have been called! Therefore,….regardless of your present status or level of belief,….All Things are going to work together for good within the confines of your own life!
Now please, do not misunderstand what I am telling you. These three Scripture verses do not say that everything that happens to you will be good. But rather they tell us with confidence that all things that happen to us will eventually work together to produce “good things” in our life. What a beautiful promise to us from our God!
The second Scripture verses that jumped into my mind as I was typing this article comes from the Book of Philippians, Chapter 4, verses 10–13, and verse 19, NKJV. We are to be comforted by these verses full well knowing that everything that happens to us is going to be fine…is going to be an eventual blessing to us,…all things will work out for our own good:
(10) “But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care
for me has flourished again; though you surely did care,
but you lacked opportunity.
(11) Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in
whatever state I am, to be content:
(12) I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound.
Everywhere and in all things I have learned to be full and to
be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
(13) I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
(19) “And my God shall supply all your need according to His
riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
No matter what happens to you, no matter how catastrophic or miserable events and circumstances appear to be, no matter the magnitude of devastation it appears that you are going to have to endure,…remember, that as long as you have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, and as long as you continue to work with a positive mental attitude, doing everything that you are able to do to resolve the issues facing you, in the end, everything is going to be O K. Everything is going to work out for your own good. Why? Because you are “the called.” That is why!
When you come to know who you really are, what you are really involved in, and what you are really doing with the use of your life,…then you cannot be stopped. You will become successful as a result of your perseverance. That’s It,…Period!
Peace and Love to All of You……………….Poppa Bear
