All Things DO Work Together For Good
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God,
to those who are called according to His purpose.
Romans 8:28 (NASB)
These words bring us comfort and peace in difficult situations, when our circumstances look bad. God never intends for us to fail. Instead, He takes our mistakes and works them out for good. He is the only one who can turn our messes into messages; our tests into testimonies.
That is who our God is; we can trust Him. We may fail at some things on our journey to success, but God is always there to lift us up to higher places. The verse before Romans 8:28 is about prayer. God tells us that when we don’t know how to pray as we ought, the Holy Spirit comes to our aid and prays through us.
Our church is a praying church. When we pray as a congregation we pray in one accord. “In one accord” means we pray by faith, in reliance on the help of the Holy Spirit, who always helps us pray.
It is through such Holy Spirit-filled prayers that all things work together for good, no matter what they are. Not everything that happens to us is good in and of itself; but God is good and He can cause bad things to work to our benefit.
When we go through dire circumstances, it is very important to put our trust in Him and Him alone. This is the key to victory. When we trust Him and when we pray, God can work in our lives. When we continue to trust Him, He continues to work everything out for the good.
Some terrible things happened to Joseph. His brothers sold him to slave traders and then lied to their father about his death. Joseph was betrayed by those whom he served and tried to help. But God was watching him all the time. You can be sure that God is watching you and me all the time.
God had a good plan for Joseph and God has good plan for you and me. Joseph said that although the things that happened to him were meant for harm, God intended them for good. It’s the same for us; Satan cannot defeat us if we keep believing that God is working for our good.
Will you choose to trust God and believe Him through your circumstances? Now, that’s the choice driven life!
