“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭28‬ ‭KJV‬‬. This verse is one of the most popular and often quoted in all of God’s Word. And yet, it is also one of the least believed. The thing that is often missed here is that this promise is not for those who simply believe in God. It’s not for those who claim to have faith in God. Having a religious profession or church membership does not make this promise ours. This is only for those WHO TRULY LOVE GOD. And when we love God it becomes natural to have faith in His promises. Galatians 5:6 tells us “faith works by love”. First we must recognize the love God has for us and allow His Spirit to put His love in our hearts. Then our love for Him will cause us to have the confidence that the One Who loves us will always work things for our good. We will know that He has all power and authority to do exactly what He promises. This kind of faith is always lacking in hearts that are lukewarm in their devotion to God. Let us love Him with all of our hearts and then we will have faith to know, God always works for good.
