Romans 8:28 “28And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
This has to be one of my most loved promises of God’s Word. I feel that more than any other promise in His Word this has helped me to trust Him through experiences that seem utterly pointless and painful. It allows me as a believer that the sorrows and pains and disappointments will work together for good. The King James version says, “all things work together for good”… it does not mean they work that way on their own, or by some kind of fate. It means that God does it… makes it all work together for good. Paul is not saying here that all things are good, they are turned by God for good.
It is a good reminder for me today. This is the day the Lord has made, I will be glad an rejoice in it, His joy is my strength.
