Romans 8:28 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Romans 8:28

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 


Yesterday, I went outside to do some pushups, and it immediately started to rain – LOL! I was like, “Really, God? Maybe He doesn’t want me to work out!”


But I persevered because I’m stubborn, and about three-quarters of the way in, the rain stopped and the sun came back out.


But I was immediately missing the rain as there were about a million flies out there, and they like to bite! God was like, “See, son, I sent the rain to help you, not to hurt you!”


This is just a small example of how little I know and how much God does!! A pastor friend of mine once told me that our lives are like a parade, where we are watching it at street-level, one float at a time. God is in the Goodyear blimp watching the whole thing at once! I have to trust that no matter what, He has my best interest in mind and that He will work all things out for those who love Him!!


It’s easy to get discouraged or say, “Why me?” But in those times, I have to remember that the One running this show is the same One who gave His son for my sins!! I may not always like the route by which I get there, but I always love the destination when I arrive!!! I have to remember not to get discouraged by the problems but rather trust in the true Problem Solver!!


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God!!
