He Has Done All Things Well

The two things I love doing everyday are sing praises and worship while remembering the mercies of God. Sometimes, there are other things that pull my mind and heart away, and I do get tempted to trade spiritual high to a sensual one. But I know that worshiping God and recalling all His wonderful works in my life are the ones that really fill my soul and enrich my life. And also, they are the ones that truly matter eternally.

While reading through the Gospels recently, this phrase made me stop and think. I had to reach for my journal and note it down.

…“He has done all things well… ” (Mark 7:37)

If I could sum up everything that the Lord Jesus Christ has done in my life into just one phrase, this would be it. Without a doubt and with a heart full of praise and thanksgiving, I say, “He has done all things well for me.”

I love reading the Gospels, especially the words and teachings of Jesus. They are so different from what we know of the world, from what we have been taught of the world even. They are high and hard to attain, if not for the Holy Spirit that transforms us into new creations and empowers us to live them out. And that’s the reason why I love them: they’re so opposite our natural tendencies. If we are humbly led by the Holy Spirit, we would want to study and embrace Jesus’s teachings. It is always a good spiritual challenge.

From Matthew to Revelation, we can know the heart and mind of Jesus. Throughout the Gospels, if we are thrilled to walk with Him from the manger to the tomb, we would know how merciful, gracious, loving, forgiving, giving, compassionate, spiritually strong, bold and courageous, meek and humble, He is. He taught (my favorite is Sermon on the Mount), He healed (everywhere), He listened (to those who asked for His mercy), He encouraged (remember Jairus and his dying daughter, how He assured him, “Be not afraid, only believe”?), He admonished (Martha, for example), He noticed (Mary’s washing of His feet with her tears and hair). He rebuked the Pharisees and scribes because He couldn’t stand hypocrisy.

He gave (feeding the multitude) and He gave time (healed Malchus’ ear though He was surrounded with soldiers ready to arrest Him). (I am already on the verge of tears recalling all these. Do you know Him that well?).

He was too meek and humble to not be provoked when He was spit upon and insulted. He remained calm and unmoved when He stood before Pontius Pilate (He is forever my hero!). He did not grovel before him to be freed, because He knew the truth that Pontius Pilate did not. And what was the truth that Pontius Pilate wanted to know? That Jesus is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Savior of the world!

He was brave and courageous. The bravest man I know who had lived on earth. He endured the scourgings. As the nails were driven through His hands and feet – He gave and gave and gave! Up to His last breath. To save the world.

Let all the world know — HE HAS DONE ALL THINSG WELL!!!  {Tears}

He has done all things well for me. When I was deep in sin and didn’t have the strength to rise from the mire, to get out of the quicksand of a depraved life – He came and took me out and put my feet on the Rock. By giving His Spirit, He gave me a new life. He changed me, had mercy on me, and blessed me. He listens to my prayers. Why? Because He wants to spend eternity with me. And He will do the same thing for you.

Jesus is the best thing that ever happened to me. To us. He has done all things well. And I love Him so.

    This is wonderful, Rina… I have never noticed (or at least really taken note) of the power of that particular verse. God HAS done all things well and that alone is something to rest in. Thanks for sharing this. Glad I stopped by from the True Story link up! Blessings to you, sister.

    Wonderful truths! It also reminds me of the song, “It Is Well With My Soul.” Popping by from Titus 2 Tuesdays!

    What a beautiful post, Rina. Reading it made me think that I need to be more present when reading through the Gospels. It’s not a story. It’s God’s word to us, the very words of our Savior. Have a blessed week!

  10. Candace says:

    Amen! Even the things I thought He couldn’t possibly be doing right in my life turned out exactly as they should be. Some of those moments have led to my most amazing growth and joy. Thank you for your wonderful, encouraging reminder this morning!

    Oh! Jotted the phrase down to my journal. <3 Everything seems to be messy at times but all of sudden we will just realize that God just wanted us to learn something from them.

    • RinaPeru says:

      Hi, Sis. Lory. I’m continually learning that our Lord Jesus Christ only wants the very best for us and sometimes, that means, letting us experience pain.
