Rom 8:28  And we know that for those who love God all things work together for our good, for those who are called according to His purpose.

In order to grasp this scripture, we need to understand from where the GOOD comes from.  It is from God or from Us that GOOD COMES?  So from your Heavenly Father, He causes everything to work together for our GOOD.

As a father: my good and my kids good are seemly very different at times.

Isa 53:10  Yet it pleased (it was good to God) Jehovah to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when He was made his soul an offering for sin,

Example: Prodigal son, would the son have come to himself and repented, returning to the father without hitting rock bottom of life? If the father kept blessing him it would just fund his lifestyle and leave him heading for an eternal damnation!!!

GODS GOAL:  Preparing the bride through the AGE of the Holy Spirit age,

So we are being worked on even though we don’t realise it.

GOD IS BUILDING A PEOPLE INTO HIS CHURCH, THE BRIDE OF CHRIST.

Just like Esther, there is a long process of preparation before the appearance of the King.
Hebrews 12:10
For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness.

Philippians 1:6
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

 

NO MATTER WHAT YOU HAVE GONE THROUGH, BE ENCOURAGED THAT GOD IS IN THE MIDDLE OF WHERE YOU ARE.  HE DESIRES TO MAKE YOU INTO HIS IMAGE, STRONG AND STABLE, BUT YOU HAVE TO EXPERIENCE RESISTANCE.

We have to learn endurance
