“We know that all things work for good for those who love God” (Romans 8:28)
I don’t remember how I came across this verse; Most likely I saw it on a plaque or a picture hanging in the local christian store. What I do remember is that it really spoke to me. Is there a greater challenge of our faith? Maybe, but I think we can all agree that to accept this verse with one’s whole heart requires total “surrender” to God our Father. It means no matter what challenge or tragedy we are experiencing, we must trust that God will use it for the greater good. When I think of this verse I envision:
Abraham going up the mountain to sacrifice his only son, Isaac (Genesis 22:1-12)
Jesus surrendering to God in the garden of Gethsemane (Matthew 26:39)
Those two visions alone are powerful, but do you know what I like most about Romans 8:28 ? I like the “Awesome Peace” that comes from believing and accepting it !
The more I accept this as one of God’s truths, the stronger and more at peace I become ! Why you ask? Because no matter how bad it is right now, I know God will make everything work for good !
Later this week I’ll share a revelation I had about a month ago regarding Romans 8:28
