God’s enabling Spirit is in us and lets us know that God is good and He loves us. Every detail is being worked into something good. We know it. It is a fact. That is just the way it is.
- Am I sure?
- Do I know it for a fact?
God is in a good mood.
No detail is too small for God. He is committed to working out every little thing for our good.
God doesn’t miss a thing. We may not understand it but we do need to believe He is in a good mood and isn’t out to punish us.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. | The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2016). (Romans 8:28). Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles.
May I be sure of God’s love and the details He is working out for me.
God has two purposes in that plan: our good and His glory. Ultimately, He will make us like Jesus the Messiah! Best of all, God’s plan is going to succeed! It started in eternity past when He chose us in Jesus.
He predetermined that one day we would be like His Son. Predestination applies only to saved people. Nowhere are we taught that God predestines people to be eternally condemned. If they are condemned, it is because of their refusal to trust Jesus. Those whom He chose, He called; when they responded to His call, He justified them, and He also glorified them. This means that the believer has already been glorified in the Messiah; the revelation of this glory awaits the coming of the Master.
Yahweh [The Lord] has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.
Proverbs 16:4 (ESV)
