And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. – Romans 8:28
The opening scripture is unequivocal. In other words, it’s not an assumption; the knowledge is definite and for certain that “all” things, not “some” things work together for your good because you love God. This shows that as a Christian, you can never be disadvantaged. It doesn’t matter the situation in which you find yourself, one thing is sure: it will produce good for you.
If you ever find yourself in a difficult situation where things look bleak, don’t despair; rather, rejoice, for that seemingly negative situation is a part of the grand process for your promotion. Joseph’s brothers sold him as a slave in Egypt (Genesis 37:28), but from prison, Joseph rose to become the Prime Minister of Egypt. No wonder the Bible says “count it all joy when you go through diverse tests and trials” (James 1:2), because the result is obvious: they’ll turn out for your good!
Understand this, all creation-everything that exists, are functioning to produce good for you in this life. The Bible says “the stars are their courses fought for Deborah against her enemies” (Judges 5:20), think about it; the stars, the wind, all of creation have been established by God for your advantage. They are functioning and cooperating together to produce a positive result in your life. The Bible tells us that Joshua was routing an enemy force and as it was getting dark, he commanded the sun and the moon to stand still (Joshua 10: 12-14). The sun and the moon assisted Joshua to ensure he had the advantage. Can you see why it’s impossible for you to be disadvantaged?
God has ordained your life in such a way that no challenge can overwhelm you. When trials and tribulations come against you, face them with the mindset of one who knows he already has the advantage, and that all things are certainly working together for your good.
