God Works All Things Together for Good
Construction Zone 11: God's Work - Past and Present
How does God show His providence specially for the sake of His children?
God works all things together for the good of His children and the glory of His name. Romans 8:28b – All things work together for good to those who love God.
This Truth Makes
God’s plans are all about God, not about you. You are only a tiny part of God’s plans – but what a privilege to be even a part! You should submit to God’s plans as more important than yours. You could go against His will; but if you make your own plan without God, you will be sorry.
It is foolish to try to “do your own thing.” God’s plans are better! God’s promises are better! Living for God will not make you sorry. In Romans 8:28, the word “good” has the idea of bringing us the best results. If we look at the next verse (29), we discover that the best result of anything that happens would be if it helped us to become more like Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is good because He is God. He shows us what “good” really is! Becoming like Him is good! God promises to change us to be more and more like His Son, both now and forever. That is a goal worth living for! And it’s also a goal worth dying for.
