Romans 8:28 (NKJV)
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
When seemingly bad things happen to good people, it is a normal human response to ask why. We long to understand the apparent senselessness of accidents, suffering, failure, or persecution. Our faith can be shaken as we struggle to understand how a loving God could allow bad things to happen.
In difficult times, we are privileged to have the blessed promise penned by the apostle Paul but authored in the heart of God. There is no hesitancy in Paul’s assertion. His conviction is firm, born out of a lifetime of suffering and persecution. He declares that we know! We know, deep in our hearts, that bad things do not need to be feared.
We know this because our omnipotent God is at work behind the scenes, bringing good out of what seems bad for every person who claims allegiance to Him.
Because of the love of God for us, we can be certain that God is at work for the good go His people. Since God is good, the work He is doing for His people is good. The ultimate good toward which He is working is His glorification and the salvation of His children.
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
