A daughter is telling her mom how everything is going wrong in her life. She failed algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her, and her best friend is moving away.
Meanwhile, her mother, who is baking a cake, asks her if she wants a snack, and the daughter said, “Absolutely mom! I love your cake”.
Here, “have some cooking oil,” her mother offers!
Yuck!, says her daughter.
How about a couple of raw eggs?
Would you like some flour then? or some baking soda?
Mom, those are all yucky! Her daughter said.
Taking into account all the answer of her daughter, the mother replied, “Yes, all those things seem bad by themselves, but when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderful and delicious cake!”
The teaching is that God works the same! Sometimes we wonder why he let us go through difficult times. Ignoring that he is the good master and when he puts all the things together in the right order, they will work for good.
He wants us to trust Him without taking into account bad circumstances, for he promised that if you love Him, no matter what had happened into your life, all will work for your good.
