The scripture for today, August 28, is Romans 8:28 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“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.”
This is a favorite verse of many people. Notice, God can make all things work together for good. ALL things. That means bad things, disappointing things, unfulfilled things. It doesn’t say God will make them all work together for the best, but he will bring some kind of good out of them, no matter how terrible they are.
What has been your most recent disappointment or tragedy? Things that just did not go the way they should have. Believe what God told you when you are living according to his purpose. Believe that God can take anything and turn it into some kind of good for you. Will you let him?
DISCUSSION QUESTION: RECALL A TIME WHEN SOMETHING WENT WRONG, BUT SOME KIND OF GOOD CAME OUT OF IT.
