For Our Good
Have you ever wished that you could go back in time and change some of the outcomes in your life? I have. I wished that I hadn’t made some of the decisions that I did. There was a time that I really believed my life would be better if…but then I’m reminded of Romans 8:28, “and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Meaning, EVERYTHING good and bad is working in our favor. This verse does not say that everything that happens is good. God is able to cause even unfortunate happenings to work for good to those who love Him. Just as an oak tree got strong by weathering heat, cold, storm, rain and hail, the Christian becomes strong with sorrow, joy, success and failure. Everything is for our good.
