A Devotion May Be Someone's Only Bible

"A devotion may be someone's only Bible for the day."

Today's Devotion

Neighborly Advice

We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love him. They are the people he called because that was his plan.  Romans 8:28 NCV

As a confused, lonely teenager dealing with my mom’s alcoholism and suicide, I roamed the streets and sometimes stopped at Betty‘s house. She was a committed Christian who ran the Sunday school program at her church.

Betty’s instruction about God bringing good out of bad came to pass when my dad remarried and I gained two stepsisters and a stepbrother—as well as a stepmom who helped me deal with my problems.

Betty’s profound words came true again when I made a mistake at a grocery store where I worked and lost my job. That same day, I was promoted to a full-time job at a cable company.

And there was the time my landlord wanted to raise my rent by two hundred dollars, and I had to find a new place to live. A Christian neighbor helped me find a new place that was only fifty dollars more than I was paying. The move enabled me to cut some of my expenses, which also helped.

Today, I remember how God showed up in my times of need. No crisis, trial, or circumstance is unfixable by the Lord. When Jesus was on earth, He healed the sick and the blind and raised Lazarus from the dead.

When bad things happen to you, God knows what He is doing. He will work it out for your good. Just trust Him.
