A Comforting Verse in the Moments of Trouble

All people will experience trials and hardships in this life. How we deal with these adversities is a true measure of our faith.

In Romans 8:28 we are taught “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.”

It is very difficult in the moment that we are experiencing trials to see the good that can come from something so negative. We must trust in God and have faith that he can find the good and believe that he can turn such a negative experience into a positive outcome.

We must not forget the second part of the verse which identifies those to whom this promise is made, “to them who are called according to his purpose.”

Those that answer the gospel call to become children of God and who strive to live according to God’s will, and not their own, are recipients of this blessing!
