"For Your Good" Even if they meant it for evil, God will cause it to be for your good
Ever experience an unexpected lay off, death of a loved one, marriage that ended in divorce, bad news about your health? Did any of these experiences seem good? Of course not! But, God did not promise us that bad and unhappy things would never happen to us but to the contrary. As a matter of fact Jesus tells his disciples, "…here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world."
God also comforts us with these words, 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)
This is the promise that we have as believers, as we face unpleasant, unfair, and simply down right horrible circumstances in our lives, which is, that God will somehow cause "Everything" to work together for our good.
Allow this journey through Romans chapter eight verse twenty-eight transform your thinking and attitude about the perils that you face in life and rest in the assurance that God will cause every single solitary one of them, to work out for your good.
