Today With God

And we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose,

[Rom 8:28 NET]

People often ask how there can be good in everything.

Here is the answer. “We know that to them that love God, all things will work together so as to bring good to us.

It may not seem that this or that particular experience can yield good. But God is able to combine this seemingly harmful thing with other things, and from the combination bring good. The selling of Joseph by his brothers was a black crime, and an observer would have said the evil never could be turned to good. Yet we know the sequel. “The Lord meant it for good.”

A lady showed Mr. Ruskin a handkerchief on which some careless person had dropped a drop of ink. Mr. Ruskin took the handkerchief away and returned it in a few days with an India ink engraving on it, using the ugly blot as the basis of the design.

So God will take the blots in our lives and change them into beauty, if only we love Him and are faithful.
