All Things Work For Good

God knows everything that will take place in a believer’s life, and His plan is so perfect that He provides a solution for every detail. No matter how big, no matter how small, God does not leave a Christian with a single problem for which He does not have a perfect provision. He promised to make a way of escape for every temptation (2).

Every detail about the believer is recorded in heaven, even the number of hairs upon his head, according to Matthew 10:30. The Lord designed the life of every person who would ever be born. He is not limited to time and knows the end from the beginning (4).

God is omniscient. Psalm 147:5 states, “Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.” He is not unaware of the comings and goings of those who believe on Him. Yet, so many Christians spend time questioning, reacting, and worrying unnecessarily about the plan of God for their lives. They fret in anxiety.

Why? Because they fail to acknowledge God’s design. They do not realize His provision at those moments, and therefore, they begin to suffer emotionally and mentally.

Regardless of their feelings, Romans 8:28 is still true. All things will work together for good.

    Thank you Carl for that sentence ‘God knows everything that will take place in a believer’s life’! The words clicke into my spirit and lifted a heavy burden I have been passing through, even though
    I believe God cares for me and is
    in control of all my experiences
    and the challenges facing me,
    These words just lifted my spirit and I will continue to give Him thanks for I’m convinced all will work together for good because I Iove the Lord and I know I am called acording to His purpose.
