The Promise You Need Today From Romans 8
Romans 8:28 ESV says, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.“
This verse is might be one that you have heard time and time again…Maybe you’ve seen it written on a piece of decor in HomeGoods, or maybe you recognize it from VBS. However, whether it’s your first time reading it or whether it’s one of your favorites, this piece of Scripture is worth a second glance.
Let’s dive into it today and experience the hope that it brings.
Leading up to this verse in Romans 8, Paul describes the Christian life on this side of heaven and how we long to be with God. Then, he offers this comfort in verse 28. But how does verse 28 help us today? What promise can we extract from it?
It’s simple…for those who have accepted Christ as their Savior, all things will indeed work together for good. That means nothing in this life of waiting will go to waste. The Scripture does not say that God will work some things together for our good. No, it says He will make use of all things.
There are certain things in our lives that we wonder why God would let happen, but Romans 8:28 relieves us of the stress of trying to figure it all out. We can find rest for every season and every situation, good or bad, when we remember that God is going to use it for our benefit.
Your life…every single bit of it is meaningful, and nothing will go to waste.
Even when your pain seems too big to handle, He is there, and He really will make all things work together for your good.
Let’s cling to that promise and carry it with us through every trial and triumph.
