In all things God works for
the good of those who love him.
Many of us first learned this verse in King James language: “all things work together for good to them that love God.”
That’s quite a statement coming from a man who had been frequently and unjustly imprisoned, flogged, beaten, stoned, shipwrecked, hungry, thirsty, sleepy, and cold (see 2 Cor. 11:23-28).
Paul’s trust was so unshakable that he believed all of these bad things would be used by God to accomplish good things.
If you can reach that level of trust it will empower you to trounce discouragement when life doesn’t work out the way you think it should and thought it would.
Trust God enough to sign your name
and leave it to him to fill in the details.
