DEVOTIONAL (August 1 – 21, 2017): “For the Good of Those Who Love Him”

by Jeff Reedy, Shipping Coordinator, Sidewalk Advocates for Life

Verse(s):

“For we know that God works everything for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.” – Romans 8:28

Reflection:

The world seems to be in a tumult of scary news at times:  Political upheaval.  Police officers gunned down. Terrorist acts.

And yet, we know that God works everything for our good. Everything!  No matter who is in the Oval Office …no matter what laws get passed in our nation. God works everything for good under Nero just as He does under Constantine. If we but turn to Him, we can trust that He will work everything out in the end.

An example of this comes immediately to mind: It’s such a beautiful thing to see a baby spared from abortion and given the opportunity for a full and happy life. It makes people wonder, what can I do to help save babies like this?

Well, that brings us to our second example: Sidewalk Advocates for Life has applications open this month!  You can learn how to bring this peaceful, lawful, incredibly effective program to your town or city and build a team of trained Sidewalk Advocates in front of your local abortion facility.

Ever wondered what you can do to make a difference in the world? To be part of God “working everything for our good?” Here’s your chance to be part of the solution!

Faith Challenge:

Pray for God to work everything for good in our country and to begin with us, perhaps by bringing SAFL to YOUR area!
