God is Watching Over Me and Will Use It for His Purpose

In summary of Romans 8:28 it says, "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them."

Bottom line:
God causes all things to work together, for the good of those who love him.  They are his people, because that was his plan.

What this means to me:

In my life, God will make all things work together, for my good, cause I love him.  He has a purpose for me and I fulfill his plan.  Even when things are tough for me, God is watching over me.  “Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever”  Psalms 23:6 NIV.  David's point is that only God's goodness will follow after, or pursue, him. No matter how bad, or evil, or difficult something seems, God will work it out for good.  It's one of God's great promises that he's given to all believers: We know all that happens to us is working for our good - if we love God and are fitting into his plans (Romans 8:28). The Bible says all things are working together for good -- not that all things are good -- but working together for good. There is no difficulty, dilemma, defeat, or disaster in my life that God can't ultimately turn toward his purpose.
