“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Romans 8:28 NLT
All things work for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purposes. This is a great promise from God. This means when bad things happen to us or those around us, ultimately good will come from it. When I suffered terribly from crippling Rheumatoid Arthritis for many years it was very hard to bear. I never thought it would end. Now it is better I have learned and grown a lot through this experience. I can now help others struggling with this terrible disease. Good has come from it. So now if bad things happen to me I know God is in control and good will come of it, no matter how bad it seems now. If you are going through an uncertain or difficult time, keep looking to God and a time when “good” will come from it.
Thank You Lord for this great promise that all things work for good for them that love You and are called according to Your purposes. I pray that when I go through hard times I will keep looking to You in hope and faith. I pray that You will sustain me and help me to look forward to the good that will come from it. Amen.
