God Works Out Everything

We know that God makes all things work together for the good of those who love Him and are chosen to be part of His plan. (Romans 8:28)

We, who are in Christ, are assured that God works for our good in all circumstances.

This piece of scripture is one of my favorite in Godís word. In fact, I consider Romans 8:28 to be my life verse. I go to this scripture when I want to be reminded that God works everything out for good when areas of life go wrong.

Itís always a shock when tragedy invades our lives. Over the past several years I have had life-shaking, without warning, chapters of my life jolted. Despite life-changing, heartbreaking events, God is in the midst of the turmoil to calm the storm.

The one incident Iíll share is about my brother, Eddy, who was 11 months younger than I. He was killed in a senseless automobile accident. A driver rear-ended his car pushing him into oncoming traffic where a truck hit his car. When my sister called me about Eddyís accident, I was devastated. Life seemed to be going so well for him. And then, in an instant, his life ended.

My family didnít have the funds for our brotherís funeral; and my brother hadnít set aside burial insurance for such a time as this. But itís awesome how God worked out the details. Our family had a friend who donated a cemetery plot, and the county victim rights group paid for the rest of the funeral. All major costs were covered.

Although his life tragically ended, my brotherís circumstances were a testimony of how God works everything out. This was a comfort despite the grief our family felt.

We may not always know why things happen when they do, but just remember God is in control. We need to trust him no matter what happens.

When I think of the phrase, ďall things work togetherĒ I envision making a cake. A cake is made up of different ingredients that all work together, so when the cake is baked it will taste delicious; life can be that way too. Some things in life are sweet and some things are bitter. But God, who knows us better than anyone, can take all the bitter and sweet things in our life and work them together for our good.

God works out everything in our lifeówe just need to have patience, trust, and perseverance. In Jesus Christ, we have a solid, unwavering, God-given promise that every event in life will eventually turn out well for those who love Him.

Do you have a genuine Romans 8:28 story that you want to share? If you do, briefly tell your story on my blog site at www.alonglifespath.com in the comments section, and I will post it.
