Lent Devotional March 9, 2017

John 16
No matter how dark the valley gets on Thursday or on Friday, your Savior walks beside you. No matter how high that mountain of tasks you have set aside for Saturday rises, your heavenly Father will somehow include them in the eternal plan of love he has set in place from all eternity just for you.
That means you can face tomorrow with confidence. Whether that lump is cancer or completely benign, God’s love for you will not change. Your financial future may look sunny or your investments may get caught up in a hurricane of falling prices and unfavorable exchange rates. Either way, God is working in it all for your good. If the plans you make for yourself pan out or if those plans get disrupted and disappointed, don’t be dismayed.
Rather, take heart! Join in with all God’s people down through the ages whose lives have proven his promises true. Join in with them as you say with confidence: “We know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose”
