…we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him…
Many people believe that God’s promise is that people who accept His salvation and love Him will only receive good things. This is not what is promised. What is promised is that all things we face will work for our good.
We, as Christians, are not promised the proverbial rose garden. We are promised that all the things we face will be help us become better and stronger. Everything that comes out way will help us grow in our faith and become more like Christ…if we let it.
Strengthening our walk with Christ is like any journey of self-improvement. We must be constantly looking for new challenges and new opportunities to further strengthen our faith and become more like Him.
With this in mind we can rejoice come what may.
