Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
Have you ever been told, during a struggling time within your life, that things will work out? Sometimes, it doesn’t really resonate. We push it off as a cliche, something everyone says to everybody during tough times. Guess what? That is what Paul is saying as well. If we are a child of God, all the things that cause us pain, heartache, and strife are mutually contributing for our good. Think about it. Have you ever learned a lesson from a trial or struggle within your life? I’m sure you have. According to James, every trial and tribulation produces perseverance (Jam. 1:3). Today, if you are going through a struggle, pray for guidance and perseverance. Oh, and realize that, in the end, the struggle will benefit you for the good.
