All Things Work Together For Good
Now before you get all huffy, hear us out. And please excuse our use of the word “sucks”. It just seemed to fit.
Several years ago a statement like this would have gotten me a bit hot under the religious collar.
While we would never doubt the validity of this promise from God in His Word, the application of God’s promises in Scripture comes down to us.
For example, let’s say a Christian woman gets divorced after 15 years of marriage when her husband leaves her for another woman. This woman would understandably be devastated for a time.
How would the Lord’s promise of all things work together for good apply to her situation? She has a choice to make that will affect her for the rest of her life.
It is not automatic that this tragic event will result in good things in her life. She has the choice of remaining bitter for the rest of her days and living a miserable life.
Or she can trust God enough to forgive and turn to His healing and restoring grace. In this case, the Lord’s promise of all things work together for blessing is a promise she can count on.
Before we say anything else, this promise of all things work together for good does not apply to everyone who reads it. It applies ONLY to those who love the Lord and are attempting to walk in His purposes.
How Do All Things
Work Together For Good?
Most church-going folks are so easily offended and upset when something goes wrong. No matter how bad things get, Our Heavenly Father is able to take the circumstances of our life and turn them into something glorious.
Look at what He did with Mary Magdalene. Look at what He did for Ruth in the Old Testament. Look at what He did for Corrie Ten Boom.
Now there is a woman who had an opportunity to respond with bitterness and hate for those who destroyed her family. She chose to forgive and receive the healing and restoring grace that only the blood of Jesus and the love of God can provide.
How do all things work together for good through hardship or loss or abuse? You cannot allow those horrible circumstances to define who you are.
God sent His Son to pay the ultimate price for all of mankind’s sin and for the sorrow and destruction that it can release.
God has the missing piece of the puzzle of your life that will release restoration and victory again.
Can all things work together for my good? You have to decide where you are going to pitch your tent.
Is it going to be in the land of hope and victory? Or is it going to be in the land of discouragement and self-pity?
