God Has Something Great in Store for You!
"We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." ROMANS 8:28
You've heard that "all things work together for good" countless times. So why do you still feel so unfulfilled?
Taken in its full context, Romans 8:28 contains a beautiful promise for you. The key to making this real, is to love God and live life according to His purpose, not yours. When you surrender your hopes, dreams, and plans to God and truly let Him lead you, He will cause everything in your life—the good, the bad, and the bittersweet—to work toward His ultimate plan for you.
Let these heartfelt devotions from Dr. Tony Evans draw you closer to God, encourage you to submit to His will, and trust Him to shape your God-appointed destiny. Discover the unparalleled joy of living a life of purpose through Jesus Christ!
“The Westminster Shorter Catechism begins by addressing a foundational need in all of us—to identify why we are here. The question is asked, ‘What is the chief end of man?’ The answer: ‘Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy Him forever.’ How do you glorify God? One way is by fulfilling His intended purpose for your life.” (source)
“In your life there are also highways that lead to the center of your purpose.
