Better Read That One Again
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. - Romans 8:28 nlt
Sometimes we should take a closer look at the Scriptures. For instance, the Bible doesn’t say that money is the root of all evil; it says the love of money is the root of all sorts of evil. And Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit; it never says it was an apple. Likewise, God does not guarantee that all things work together for good. Do you think for people in hell things have worked out for their good? He declares that all things work together for good “for those who love God and are called according to his purpose.” In other words, things most certainly work out for good for you if—and this is a big if—you are a follower of Christ and are willing to seek, trust in, and fulfill His will. Under those conditions, all things do work together for good!
No matter what kind of setback you face, no matter what kind of rejection by man, no matter what kind of suffering, hurt, and evil you have to endure in this life, God can bring good out of any situation. If you choose to trust God, He can bring good out of the darkest, most dismal of circumstances. Why don’t you start looking for the good that God wants to bring? This is what God’s Word means when He talks about all things working together for good.
