God’s Purpose for You

“We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Rom. 8:28).
The first part of this promise gives us confidence that no matter what the day has in store for us, God is guiding our lives. This can provide a sense of calm and optimism, even in difficult circumstances.
And what about God’s purpose for you? What is it? According to Romans 8:29 it is his purpose that you “be conformed to the likeness of his Son.”
Adam was made in the likeness of his Creator (Gen. 5:1) and now the Lord wants to make you in the likeness of your Redeemer. Can you imagine what a great privilege this is; to be like Adam before he turned his back on God; to be like Jesus?
God doesn’t expect the impossible from you. What the Lord desires for you he, himself, will make possible.
