Theme : Those Who Love God
But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
1 Corinthians 2:9
Recommended Reading: Isaiah 64:4
Life is filled with qualifications. Do you want to drive legally? You need to pass the licensing exam and driving test. Do you want the twenty-percent discount at the store? You need to have the coupon that came in the mail.
Do you want to know that everything in your life is going to be for your good? There is a condition: You have to love God. That’s what Romans 8:28 says: “To those who love God.” What does it mean to love God? It means to obey Him, serve Him, submit to Him, rejoice in Him, and trust Him in all things. Compare Paul’s list of what it means to love others in 1 Corinthians 13. In other words, when we are wholly committed to God as His children, He, as our Father, watches over our lives to accomplish His purpose in us.
Love is not about perfection; it is not about never failing. It is about the heart’s desire to know God more deeply every day.
Either directly or indirectly, every providence has a tendency to the spiritual good of those who love God.
