Day 22 Romans 8:18-39
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 ESV
Although you can’t see it, God is at work and has already weaves together a beautiful tapestry which is His purpose for your life. And just as you waited nine long months for your baby girl to grow in your belly. So that she could get strong and healthy. You must have that same patience and trust for God’s will.
Day 23 Romans 9
All those people who didn’t seem interested in what God was doing actually embraced what God was doing as he straightened out their lives. And Israel, who seemed so interested in reading and talking about what God was doing, missed it. How could they miss it? Because instead of trusting God, they took over. They were absorbed in what they themselves were doing. They were so absorbed in their “God projects” that they didn’t notice God right in front of them, like a huge rock in the middle of the road. And so they stumbled into him and went sprawling. Isaiah (again!) gives us the metaphor for pulling this together: Careful! I’ve put a huge stone on the road to Mount Zion, a stone you can’t get around. But the stone is me! If you’re looking for me, you’ll find me on the way, not in the way.
Romans 9:30-33 MSG
God wants us to be seeking Him. He knows that we cant do that when were busy trying to prove were worthy through our own work.
God ain’t impressed by me quoting scripture and going to church every Sunday. What he wants is for me to have child like faith in Him. To know that he is my provider, healer, refuge, counselor, quite literally my everything.
When things are good, bad, or indifferent He simply wants me to recognize that he is there with me. Instead of seeing Him as an obstacle to overcome or prove myself to in order to get back in his good graces.
Day 24 Romans 10
Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 ESV
Day 25 Romans 11
Do you remember that time Elijah was agonizing over this same Israel and cried out in prayer? God, they murdered your prophets, They trashed your altars; I’m the only one left and now they’re after me! And do you remember God’s answer? I still have seven thousand who haven’t quit, Seven thousand who are loyal to the finish. It’s the same today. There’s a fiercely loyal minority still—not many, perhaps, but probably more than you think. They’re holding on, not because of what they think they’re going to get out of it, but because they’re convinced of God’s grace and purpose in choosing them. If they were only thinking of their own immediate self-interest, they would have left long ago. Romans 11:2-6 MSG
Day 26 Romans 12
Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it’s important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him. Romans 12:3 MSG
Day 27 Romans 13
But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires. Romans 13:14 ESV
Day 28 Romans 14
Cultivate your own relationship with God, but don’t impose it on others. You’re fortunate if your behavior and your belief are coherent. Romans 14:22- MSG
