Are All Things Working Together for Good?

Sep 05, 2007 By: Pastor William Poss Series: Romans 8 Scripture: Romans 8:28
There is nothing that comes to pass in time that God has not predestined in eternity. And that which He does predestinate is for the good of His elect and the glory of His name. All things work together for good. What a grand promise. This grand promise does have boundaries though: 1) It is for Christians only 2) The ‘good’ described is conformation to the image of Christ 3) It promises a good use of things which we would consider bad 4) It involves knowing, rather than feeling. Within these parameters, this promise is boundless and provides us with a soft pillow upon which we can lay at night knowing that despite what is going on around us, we can know that God is absolutley in control.
