And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory. Romans 8:28‭-‬30 NLT

God’s ultimate purpose for choosing you in Christ is to bring you into His eternal glory. However, to become a partaker in the divine glory, you will need to become first and foremost like His Son, Jesus Christ who Himself was made perfect through many things He suffered (Heb. 2:10).

Just as it was for Jesus, God will cause every experience of your life to bring about His good purpose. The primary good God is achieving in your life through all your experiences in this life is conformity to the image of His Son, Jesus Christ. Until you are made to become like Jesus you cannot be in right standing with God and until you are given right standing with God He cannot give you His lasting glory.

As you surrender your life to follow Jesus each day of your life, God will take every event of your life and use it to bring you closer to Christlikeness. You need not fear or be ashamed in any situation you find yourself in, every circumstance of your life: the good or the bad, the beautiful or the ugly, the gainful or the painful, the pleasant or the unpleasant is a tool in God’s hand for your perfection.

Therefore, as you begin the journey into the penultimate month of the year 2022, fear not for God is with you and is in the midst of your situations working out His good purposes. He will bring out a glorious message from every mess in your life and every bleeding will come with monumental blessings. You have been chosen and predestined for eternal glory. Congratulations and have a happy new month.

Your brother,
