ALL THINGS WORK FOR GOOD

ALL THINGS WORK FOR GOOD

Romans 8:28 (NKJV) And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Here is a scripture that I have seen so abused in my life as a Christian.  I have heard people say things like, “You know that tragic accident that person had?  We know it was God’s will and He will work it out for the good.”  Or, someone has a sickness come against them, and they hit them with the same line.

But to understand this verse, you have to read what the Holy Spirit was talking about.  He was talking about prayer in verse 26-27.  Let us look at it.  Romans 8:26-27 says, “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”

You see, all things work out for good for those that are praying and breaking the power of the enemy.  God does not have sickness or calamity within Him.  Our God is a good God and Father, and every good thing comes from Him.  But there is also a very bad devil that confuses people into thinking that every time he brings a bad thing on a person, it is God, our loving Father, doing it.

No, child of God!  We need to correctly study God’s Word and not be moved about by every wind of doctrine.  Jesus said in John 14:9, “He who has seen me has seen the Father.”  This verse shows us who the Father is, and what the Father does.  Jesus never made one person sick, and then told them that it would work out for the good.  No!  Jesus healed the sick, provided for people’s needs, and brought life to dead people! 

That is our Father God, and now we know the lies of the devil.  So if something is coming against you and it is not good, break the power of the enemy and thank the Father for setting you free.  Whom the Son sets free is free indeed!

CONFESSION:  My Father God is a good God, and every good and perfect gift comes from Him.  All bad comes from the devil, and I bind him from my life today!
