When quoting Romans 8:28, we often begin with the words, "All things work together for good." But the verse really begins like this: "We know that all things work together for good to those who love God."  Our knowing comes by faith. By faith we are confident that God will never disappoint us.

I read a story about a shipwreck. When the sole survivor reached a small, uninhabited island, he prayed for God to rescue him, but help didn't come. Eventually he built a hut out of driftwood for protection from the elements. One day he returned from scavenging for food and found his hut in flames, the smoke rising into the sky. Angrily he cried, "God, how could You do this to me?"

The next morning he was awakened by rescuers.  "How did you know I was here?" he asked. "We saw your smoke signal," they replied. The next time it seems as if your last hope has gone up in smoke, remember what "we know" to be true (Romans 8:28).

When God says that all things work together for good to those who love Him, He means all.


What would we gain if we gained this whole world?  We can read in the paper every day of people who have gained this world and have not found happiness.  We are so careful with our bodies, doing all that is necessary and needful for their maintenance.  We give up ourselves to guarantee the education and welfare of our children.  But, what about the soul?  To not be concerned with our soul is to say we really do not believe what the Bible says about Heaven and Hell, to not believe we are sinners, to not believe we have need of a Saviour.  Our standing before God is more important than all this world.  We can get by without being perfect in body, but we will not see God if we are not as perfect and holy as God.


Christ Our Rest and Peace – William Tyndale, England, Preacher, Translator of Scripture, Martyr 1500-1536

Remember that Christ is the end of all things. He only is our resting place, and he is our peace (Ephesians 2). For as there is no salvation in any other name, so is there no peace in any other name. Thou shalt never have rest in thy soul, neither shall the worm of conscience ever cease to gnaw thine heart, till thou come to Christ; till thou hear the glad tidings, how that God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven thee all freely. If thou trust in thy works there is no rest. Thou shalt think, I have not done enough. Have I done it with so great love as I should do? Was I so glad in doing as I would be to receive help at my need? I have left this or that undone, and such like. If thou trust in confession, then shalt thou think, Have I told all? Have I told all the circumstances? Did I repent enough? Had I as great sorrow in my repentance for my sins as I had pleasure in doing of them? Likewise in our holy pardons and pilgrimages gettest thou no rest.

As pertaining to good deeds, therefore, do the best thou canst, and desire God to give thee strength to do better daily; but in Christ put thy trust, and in the pardon and promises that God hath made thee for His sake, and on that ROCK build thine house, and there dwell. For there only shalt thou be sure from all storms and tempests, and from all wily assaults of the wicked spirits, which study with all falsehood to undermine us. And the God of all mercy give thee grace so to do, unto whom be glory for every. Amen. 


Charles Wesley – 1707-1788 

Blest be our everlasting Lord,
Our Father, God, and King;
Thy sovereign goodness we record;
Thy glorious name we sing.


Thy kingdom, Lord, is Thine alone,
Who dost Thy right maintain;
And high on Thy eternal throne
O'er men and angels reign.

Thou hast on us Thy grace bestowed,
Thy greatness to proclaim;
And therefore now we thank our God
And praise Thy glorious name.

Thy holy name and awesome power
Thou dost to us make known;
And all Thy righteousness is ours
Through Thy incarnate Son. 

(Tune:  "Am I A Soldier Of The Cross")


(Psalm 107:1-2)  "O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good: for His mercy endureth forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy."
