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
Have you ever wondered how “Plan B or C” can become “Plan A?” It can make you ask yourself, was “Plan B” “Plan A” all along and I just didn’t know it? You may never know the answer to that question except to say that you have a Heavenly Father that knows how to work “EVERYTHING” out for your good. Only an all powerful, sovereign and loving God, can take something that you had never thought of, or even considered possible and make it “Plan A.”
Reading Romans 8:28 in the Amplified Version makes it even clearer; “And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.”
Now some may be quick to say that for God to work “EVERYTHING” out for our good we must love Him. And yes we do need and want to “love” God, but the only true and perfect love that has, or every will exist is His love for us. In fact the word “love” in Romans 8:28 actually means, “to welcome.”
Now that’s a relief to know, because it would be easy for us to wonder and question weather or not we “loved” God enough for the “EVERTHING” clause work on our behalf.
The acceptance and belief in this one verse alone can also give you the confidence in knowing that you cannot fail. You can know for sure that no matter the circumstance; weather your fault or someone else’s, that He will cause EVERYTHING to work out for our good.
Today, know that because of God’s great love, and as long as you welcome Him into your life, the “EVERYTHING” clause is working for you!
