Scripture reading: Romans 8:28

Let us look at Romans 8:28, “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.”

Some of us do not know that all things work together for good. The only difference between those who know and those who don’t know is that those who don’t know grumble when they get hit but those who know rejoice. Every soul has problems sometimes. Some of us have them all the time. But some people know that their problems are deliberately designed by God to lift them into a higher realm. Others don’t know. And that’s the difference between the person who can rejoice over problems or whatever happens in his/her life and the one who cannot rejoice. Whether you do or you don’t know, all things work together for good to you.

Somebody may say, “There is a qualifying phrase here, ‘to them that love God.’” But there is a qualifying phrase to that qualifying phrase, “to them who are the called according to his purpose.” So from the time God called you, even before you were justified, all things began to work together for good to you. You were like the bull, outside of the Tabernacle, when those men threw the rope over him and began to haul him towards the gate of the Tabernacle. You too were hauled to the brazen altar to be born again. All things began to work together for good. There you were cursing and saying, “Oh, I have the worse luck. Why did it have to happen to me?” But God is very much pleased with the progress. Remember, “…all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, February 1978)

Thought for today: Let us be among those who know that all things work together for good to us. It will help us to rejoice in our problems, which are designed by God to lift us into a higher realm.
