“That all things work together for good to them that love God…” (Romans 8: 28)
It is an exclusive privilege for those who love God that all things will work together for their good. When you truly love God with all your heart, God will make all things work for your good.
When the Bible says ‘all things’, it means everything; good, bad, ugly, all. In other words, when certain things happen to you, God allows them because He intends to use them in your favour. It doesn’t matter how bad/negative a circumstance looks, God can turn that situation round.
Now, there is a condition attached for all things to work together for your good. It is not everybody that has this privilege. It is only ‘them that love God’. You can choose whom to love. It is a choice.
Do you really love God with your spirit, soul and body?
Some persons love God with their spirit and soul but not their bodies. These are people who are very spiritual but live in sin. They drink, smoke, fornicate, lie, steal, etc but they pretend that they love God. (Romans 12:1)
Some persons use their bodies to work for God but their hearts are not perfect with God (Proverbs 6:16).
For God to step into your situation and make all things work for your good, you must love Him with your whole heart.
