All Things are Good?

One of our favorite verses is Romans 8:28, “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” NASB. (emphasis mine)

Paul must be speaking in faith in this verse where he says, “we know”.  Because we do not “know”.  At least we sure do not act like we “know” it.  If we knew God is using all things in our lives for good, there would not be anything in our lives “bad”.  Yet we complain about a multitude of things in our lives that are worrisome, frustrating, aggravating. We complain about people’s attitudes and actions. We whine about our lack of finances. We worry about the future of our jobs, family, society, etc.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we “knew” that God was working everything that happens in our lives for our good?  We could wake everyday with joy and great anticipation the good things we will learn and grow into.  In fact, if everything is working for my good, it would be impossible for me to fail.  That is a reason to be joyful today!

Blessings.

One response to “All Things are Good?

  1. Good and encouraging word! “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31, NIV)
