We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 WEB
It was time to get a better internet package for the ministry, so we went to the service provider's office, signed in and sat down. We waited quite a while, but no one called us. I looked at the clock as they called the next person, and even though we had signed in before them, they were now going in ahead of us.
It was annoying to be skipped over as we waited for customer service and after this happened a couple of times, I was ready to do some professional level whining and complaining. For some reason they had scratched our name off, skipped over us and continued down the sign in sheet. I felt cheated.
Eventually, one of the upper management came to help them catch up with the queue, called us in and waited on us personally. I was surprised, because it was someone that I had gone to school with and we had been friends long ago.
Someone else had told us that the top speed business package would cost us around $300 a month, so we were going to get something more in the middle. However, my friend who was helping us said that they were allowed to give a ministry the residential rate of $99 for the top tier, and that we would still have all the same speed, service, and benefits of the top tier business package.
They saved us from making a mistake, gave us a much better package, and saved us a good bit of money at the same time. It was about a third of what we would have had to pay. It turns out that it could not have worked out better, but we had to wait for it.
Have you ever been inconvenienced only to find out that it worked out for the best? There are people that met their spouse while waiting in a slow check out line at the grocery store. Had they not been stuck waiting in the line they would have walked right past each other.
Know today that the delays, setbacks, and disappointments that you face will end up working out for your own good. The things that look bad, scary, and the things that make you nervous, will work out for the best in the end. When God makes you wait, It is for a good reason, and He always has something better in store.Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for this wonderful day. I am thankful to be here, right where I am, and I know that You have good plans for me. I choose to delight in You today and I know that the bad things are going to work out for good, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
