Before I knew Christ as my Savior, I was familiar with the phrase “everything will work out for good.”
The more familiar I became with evangelical Christianity, the more I learned similar phrases like “God won’t give you more than you can handle,” and “God helps those who help themselves.”
As a determined optimist, I clung to these concepts. Yet they proved frustrating and confusing as I began to consider faith in Jesus.
Soon, “everything will work out for good” was added to my list of non-Biblical, untrue philosophies. The concept didn’t seem to fit with the truth of sin’s consequences or the call for believers to set themselves aside.
Imagine my surprise when, after receiving Christ as my Savior, I discovered this verse in the Bible:
And we know that for those who love God all things
work together for good, for those who are called
according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)
