God Will Make It Right
by Diana Scothorn
The word says, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28.
God works out all things. Not most things, but ALL THINGS. All is defined as “the whole of every bit of the complete, the entire, the totality, in its entirety, absolute, total, full, utter, perfect, all-out, greatest possible, maximum. Wow!
That sums it up. Psalm 119:160 says, “the sum of Your word is truth.” If God says it, it is so. All cover everything in its entirety.
It is hard, sometimes amid a battle, to truly comprehend that if we turn the struggle over to God…
He will make sure we are alright. He will make it right, in the right way, at the right time, every time.
I have tried to fix things in my strength, in my way, but it was never a perfect long-term fix. It was like putting a patch on a tire with a significant tear and praying it would make a trip worldwide. My idea to make things better was not a long-term solution.
When we trust God in the beginning, He will see that we benefit in the end. God has a foolproof plan. Sure is defined as free from doubt, reliability, and character.
God is the sure thing. He has a secure plan, and the integrity of His character will not fail. He will do exactly what His word says He will do. We can be confident in His love, wisdom, provision, and protection.
I experienced a devastating divorce in a season in my life where nothing was secure. My world had been shattered, and my future was far from certain. When we have a perfect plan, and the plan fails, satan immediately makes us feel like we are the failure.
The kids were in college, and we had only been living in our dream home for five months when my baby sister of 35 unexpectedly went home to be with the Lord, and my marriage abruptly ended.
The devil took me by surprise. I was betrayed (former marriage), and the core of my value had been compromised. The good news is that God is never surprised. He knows all things at all times, every minute of every day.
When we think we can’t go on, God assures us, “Yes, You Can.” I have a plan. Everything is going to be alright.” I honestly thought I wouldn’t make it. I felt like I couldn’t breathe. The weight of the pressure and pain on my chest truly felt like my heart was breaking.
I have since learned there is a medical term called broken heart syndrome. It is characterized by sudden dysfunction of part of the heart’s left ventricle, with heart attack-like symptoms. It is attributed to patients with broken hearts.
The pain was too much for me to bare. I learned there it is not too much pain for God to understand. He can take the pain and turn it into our gain. It may seem impossible, but Matthew 17:21 says,” ALL THINGS are POSSIBLE with GOD.”
When we are wronged, God will make it right. He will take what the devil meant for harm and make it turn out for good. I couldn’t see any good outcome in a marriage that was over. I didn’t understand. God never expects us to understand. He only wants us to trust Him with what we don’t understand.
I had invested my love, energy, and life, and now it was over! In the depth of my being, the pain of the word “over” brought tremendous fear.” Satan intends our pain to cause permanent paralysis.
Interestingly over is defined as above and to the other side. It is never over with God. He will cause us to rise above our circumstances and take us to the other side.
We will live again when we trust God to rise above our problems and take us to the other side! Every day He has a fresh new beginning. The enemy may have stolen my marriage, but he didn’t steal my life, for God made everything brand new.
Revelation 21:5 says, “Behold; I am making all things new.” Isaiah 43:19 says, “Behold; I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
God gave me a NEW beginning, a NEW marriage, and a NEW appreciation for genuine Godly love! He not only made my life brand new but EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY BETTER than I could ever imagine.
I am not just living; I’m living my life to the fullest. I don’t have a life I love; I love my life! Jesus erased the pain of yesterday and birthed the joy of today. He developed my character, strength, and core values and caused my faith to rise above my circumstances!
The enemy may attempt to steal our life, but when our heart belongs to Jesus, He is an everlasting lifeline! What happens to us may NOT BE RIGHT, but if we trust God, He will raise our life and make it right on the other side!
Our life may not go as planned, but God still has a plan. There is no circumstance too big that God can not RISE US ABOVE!
