Hi Ladies, I so enjoyed our time last week discussing the distinction between being a “Peacekeeper” and “Peacemaker.” Can you believe that we are already half-way through the study ? I hope and pray that you are able to tangibly see some results of living a Spirit-filled life.
As Beth explores patience she writes in Day 4, “If we refuse to forgive, we tie God’s mighty hands from ‘working all things together for good’ … Christ has a purpose in the pain you’ve suffered … and until you surrender to His purpose in the specific matter at hand, He cannot work it out for your good.”
I can recall times where I’ve faced such injustice that I wondered how God could work in the midst of it. After making the choice to forgive, I was flooded with His peace and patience. I also had a greater understanding of the saying, “When things seem to be unraveling, just remember who is knitting all things together for good.”
How about you? Where in your life do you need to surrender to forgiveness? How will you allow God to begin working ‘things’ together for your good?
