now please notice that this is not a promise for everyone. romans 8.28 (nlt), GOD causes all things to work together for good to [notice this…] those who love GOD. who are called according to HIS purpose.
only if you’ve given your life to CHRIST and you’ve said i love GOD. i want to be in the center of GOD’s purpose. all things do not work together for good for everybody in the world. they do not. but they work together for good for anybody who comes and says, “GOD, here are all the pieces of the puzzle of my life. here’s the good, here’s the bad, here’s the ugly, here’s the part i’m most ashamed of.” we give all the pieces to GOD and HE works good in that.
you think we’ve got a reason to be hopeful? do we!
no wonder CHRISTians can be hopeful.
just a thought from the front porch…
