All For Good

Romans 8:28 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.

His Majesty 

The most skeptical question about the existence of a good God is, “If God exists, why is there so much evil in the world?” Such a question shows a one-sided bias. Doubting the existence of God for reasons of suffering and evil overlooks the reality that there too are many good things in the world. Granting there is more evidence of evil, however, does a skeptic consider that God may be real because of the existent good things? One needs to consider both sides of the story.

On the other hand, God believers tend to present that God is all favorable regardless of how anyone behaves by claiming him to be true. Today’s text is one of those which are so often abused. The sense of loving God and his call to align with his purpose is unjustly ignored or cut off. It is such a comfort indeed to know that with God all things work together for good. It encourages that in the long end, one sees the harmony and coherence of all things that lead to a never-missed God. However, that too is one
side of the truth.

If all things work harmoniously for good then there also must be a harmony between the loving and purposeful God with all of those in relationship with him. Since he loved first and set his purpose for the believers, each must respond with interest in his purpose in a passionate way. There is no one as precise as God. He cannot be mistaken though his ways are often too high to find out. That however is the reason why he excels with things that matter most and lifts those passionate in awe!

My Inmost

“Heavenly Father I confess that there is none as orderly and loving as you are. Help me to understand the things that go in tune with your love, for they tell apart all the goodness that comes from you. Help me grow with my resolve to walk with your presence through the things I know very little at all, all for
your glory. In Jesus Christ, I pray, amen.”
