All Things Work Together for Good

Romans 8v28

All Things Work Together for Good

When I was converted and recently afterwards diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic, the above verse was such a help. The apostle makes it clear not everyone can have the assurance of the above statement, it's those that by God's grace love Him.

All Things - All circumstances, events and experiences, whether pleasing or painful, are directed by God for the good of those that love Him.

Work Together - Day by day God in His perfect wisdom is controlling all that happens in the lives of those that love Him for their good. Because of all God is in Himself, He cannot make mistakes at all. So, God will even use all that happens as a result of the COVID-19 virus for the good of those that love Him.

For Good - How encouraging to know that our joys and sorrows, successes and failures, are used by God for the good of conforming us into the image of Christ.

My wife likes doing cross stitch of various landmarks in foreign cities we have visited. When of course you look at the back it's a jumble of threads but from the front a lovely scene. Sometimes as believers in Christ our lives can appear a jumble of meaningless events. However, in glory we see they were used by God to make us like Christ who is altogether lovely.
