ANGLICAN DAILY FOUNTAIN DEVOTIONAL FOR FEBRUARY 1, 2023 (ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD)
TOPIC : ” ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD”
TEXT: Acts 16:16-end(NKJV)
Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling.
Romans 8:28 states in part, “…all things work together for good to those who love God….” This played out in our text today. In their ministry journey, Paul and Silas met the girl described here as possessing the spirit of divination. Paul, in the power of the Holy Spirit, cast out the spirit.
This resulted in severe beating and imprisonment for them. However, despite their travail, they resorted to praising God who came to their rescue! This led to the repentance of the jailer and his household. When Christians face trials, they fail to ask God to work out His purpose through their experiences. It is true that trials are usually tough and unexpected, but God knows why they come to us.

What He requires from us is to trust Him and allow Him to turn the situation for good to give Him glory. IfPaul and Silas had started to lament in the prison and possibly abuse and curse God, God would not have intervened and the jailer would not have encountered Christ and the disciples would have rot in prison. Let us always leave matters in God’s hands.
PRAYER: Dear Father, may you help me to trust you in all situations and leave you to work out things good from them, Amen.
