Romans 8:28 We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
The Apostle Paul declares in this text that "we know" everything we go through in life is working for our good. He says "ALL" things. This means, good, bad and the ugly has a purpose in our lives.
Yes, as painful as many of the circumstances we have to endure and as unfair as some of them may seem in this life, scripture declares that they are working for our good.
Even when it does not look like it, God is at every point in our lives. He is involved in every detail of it as a matter of fact. Yes, I know it does not appears that He is, but He is for scripture declares that He is the Sovereign God.
Why He allowed or allows even tragedy or any other things to happen, I do not have the answers, but I know that He knows all about them before they even happened, when they happened and after they happened.
God has a purpose for allowing what He allows, good or bad and He has a promises on today that they will work toward our ultimate good. Not that evil is good, but God can use evil to work out something good on our behalf.
No matter what happens, God will turn a tragedy into a blessing if you could only believe that.
Remember Daniel who was thrown in the lion’s den, remember the 3 Hebrew boys who were thrown in a fiery furnace, remember Joseph who was sold into slavery, remember the children of Israel who spent 400 years in Egyptian slavery, remember Sarah, Hannah and Elizabeth who spent years of ridicule for being barren, remember Jesus Christ our Savior who was rejected and crucified by those He came to save?
In all these situations, God appeared to be absent and no where to be found, but guess what, God was there with them from the beginning to it's end and everyone of them came out victorious.
In promising us that all things will work together for our good, God is saying to us that things will not always be the way it is currently, but God will, at His appointed time in our lives, perfect all things concerning you and I. Sooner or later things will turn in our favor for God promises it on today people of God.
Oh, the power of faith in God's promises. Hebrews 11:6-And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exist and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek after Him.
No, we do not understand everything that happens in life. There will always be circumstances and situations in life that we will not be able to explain, but that is where our faith in God come in to play.
Believing God's promises and trusting Him beyond what we see with our natural eyes is the place where God is calling all of us to on today, regardless of what we may be going through right now.
People of God, regardless of what you are going through right now, we must "KNOW" without a doubt that God has our best interest at hand and He is indeed working all things together for our good.
If you confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and declare your love for Him and God, Romans 8:28 can be declared as your promise on today.
The question becomes "do you believe it" in spite of your current situation? Do you believe what God says concerning you on today that all you are going through is working for your good?
To survive on this Christian journey, we MUST "BELIEVE" God and what He declares concerning us in His Word. The truth of the matter is that God's Word declares thatwe (those God foreknew ) know that all things work together for the good of them that love God.
Trust God on today in the midst of your circumstance in knowing that when the road gets too rough to travel God promises to give you and I a way of escape.
Trust God on today and enjoy the ride with Him in knowing that He is working all things together for our good.
God bless you all.
