“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
–Romans 8:28 NIV
These words are as challenging as they are comforting. I mean it’s good to know that God is working for good, but it’s torturous to try to see how anything “good” could come from the death of a child or the end of a marriage. I’m really glad God is ultimately in charge of working things for good because so many times I’ve made choices that I thought would work out for “good” and they didn’t. God knows what’s good even if I don’t. The ultimate good is that you spend eternity with Him in heaven. Does God use both triumphant and tragic times in our lives to draw us closer to Him? Does He allow times of sorrow so that we’ll be reminded where our true joy lies. Does God allow things to pass away so that we’ll be reminded of what IS permanent. In the end, this is a matter of faith. Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who live Him.” We know. WE KNOW that in all things God is working for good whether we understand it or not. The ultimate good is certain. Christ’s death and resurrection made sure of that.

Sunday Service Sneak Peek for July 19, 2020 – Matthew 13:26
We are like wheat living in a weedy field. In other words, we’re children of God living in a sinful world. We might assume God will just apply some herbicide and destroy all the weeds interfering with our happiness. That’s not going to happen. God has a better plan.
