He’s Working All Things Out For Your Good

Apr 1, 2019

‘And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.’Romans 8:28 NIV

Paul begins this verse by saying: ‘And we know.’ There are so many things in life we don’t know. We don’t know if it will rain today or how our kids will turn out. We don’t even ‘know what we ought to pray for.’ (Romans 8:26 NIV) But we can ‘know’ these four things:

(1) ‘God works.’ Even though you can’t see Him, He’s busy behind the scenes. He hasn’t checked out or moved on. He’s ceaseless, tireless, and He never stops working.

(2) ‘God works for the good.’ Not for our comfort, pleasure, or entertainment, but for our ultimate good. But then again, He is the ultimate good, so would you expect anything less?

(3) ‘God works for the good of those who love Him.’ Behold the benefit of a loving God! Make His story your story, and your story takes on a happy ending. Guaranteed!

(4) God works ‘in all things’. God works, not just in a few things, or the good things, or the best things, or the easy things. He works in ‘all things’. And He doesn’t make the plan up as He goes along.

The Bible says, ‘In Him we were also chosen… according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will.’ (Ephesians 1:11 NIV) And the best part is—God’s plan includes you! So stop fretting, stressing out, and losing sleep. Turn it over to God and believe that He’s working ‘all things’ out for your good and His glory.
