that the works of God should be made manifest

Joh 9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind
Joh 9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

Sometimes life throws us many unexpected twists and turns. We walk in places that perhaps we never expected to ever go. And yet do not despair for these trials come with a purpose- that the works of God would be manifested in your life. We are indeed a testimony of His grace. The storms come and the winds howl but yet we stand. What shipwrecks another only changes our course an in the end all around us see and know that only our God is able to keep us through such circumstance. He is glorified in our lives.

Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

If all things in our life truly work for our good (and they do) then fear has no more place in our hearts. Surely He is able to keep us, surely He is able to deliver us and most assuredly He is willing to move on our behalf.
Selah.

this is a war m8,that is true.evil is still evil,no matter which way you serve this.Jesus says only God is truely good.and shines on the sinners aswell as the righteous.so there are some things i don,t believe,and 1 is this God doing evil to test me or show me.and i would not lower him to say so.

Amen , and I am sure all of us can attest to that .

Sometimes in our storms we think God isn't there but He is even when we are going through our valleys.

We are studying in Genesis and last night as we were studying about Abraham, God waited 13 yrs after Ishmael was born to tell Abraham that Sarah would bare him a son at 100 yrs old . What did Abraham do .... He laughed . But God always comes through on His promises.

Why 13 years gap?

Dusty who said Abraham laughed :p his wife laughed but not him Genesis 18:12

it must have been cute though hehe because God caught her lying =D
15 But Sarah denied it, saying, “I did not laugh,” for she was afraid.
And He said, “No, but you did laugh!”

but it was all an innocent thing :)
our God loves us :)

Rams go to verse 17 Chapter 17 .......Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, "Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?"
