And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Rom. 8:28 KJV)
The Apostle Pul makes the Paul declaration above by the Spirit that for every single one of those who love God and are called according to His purpose, every single thing in life works together for their good. This is not positive thinking. There is some natural power unleashed by the sheer fact of being positive in life. However, this is not what God is speaking to here. He says He supernaturally creates a divine bias in life to cause every thing that in the life of His children to turn around for their good.
You should realize that the verse above does not say everything that happens to us comes from God. This is a fundamental error that has created a lot of confusion in many of God’s precious children. Everything about our lives as God’s children is divinely supervised and monitored. It does not mean God is the Author of everyone of them.
I often illustrate this verse with a trivial analogy. Imagine Satan puts a nail on your path to piece your foot and cause tremendous suffering. God will use that nail to close a part of your roof that might be leaking! You get the idea. He is Creator God. He can make every single event in our lives turn out from our God, even when it originates from Satan. He is Lord. Your life is in very safe hands. Trusting in Him is key to make the verse above a reality in your life.
What should your attitude be in any situation you find yourself if things will certainly turn out for your good? Declare that “I am a victor always and at all times, all circumstances and in every place because My God is Creator and Lord of the Universe!”
APPLY THE WORD
Trust and rest in God. Your life is carefully monitored and divinely supervised. Trust is key. No matter the pressure, rehearse this verse in your mind once more and let you of the Lord fill your heart.
Ask the Lord to strengthen you to pass through every challenge successfully and joyfully.
