All Things Work for Good


In the book of Romans, chapter 8, verse 28, Paul, the apostle, said, “We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Paul wrote these words, not after living a cozy life, but after suffering shipwreck, imprisonment, perils among false brethren, and those who hated him. There are very few people alive today that can say they collectively have suffered the trajectory that Paul lived. However, Paul’s perspective on everything he had lived through, had a divine purpose, whether he understood it or not.

We often pray, “O God, get me out of this and I’ll love you.” Or “deliver me from this and I’ll serve you.” Instead of praying, “God, get me out,” we should be praying, “Lord, what are you teaching me? What are you producing in my character that I will not learn any other way?” You see, you and I either believe that all things work for good or we don’t. Today, let’s choose to believe.

It’s time to pray.
