The Good!

Posted by Al Hathaway Monday, August 15, 2011

"We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him." Romans 8:28


I had to read this text closely, because all things are not good. The text says, God works for the good.

With that clarity, I can believe that nothing comes my way without God's divine purpose being attached to it. I believe that God is for the good.

This is not a theoretical statement. It is a statement of faith. Every event brings the most divinely blessed results; and so, believing that God rules all, that He governs wisely, that He brings good out of evil, my heart is assured, and I am able to meet each trial as it comes.

I can stand firm in knowing that even if it seems I'm in a storm. There is a bright cloud somewhere.

Flying through a storm is a harrowing experience. The pilot informs us that to get out of the storm he would have to fly to a higher altitude.

That’s what each of us has to do. When the storms of life come; go to a higher altitude in the Lord. There you will see that you are above life's storms.
