“We need to first understand what He interprets as good. Don’t let our selfishness misinterpret God’s expected outcome.” – #ToddCPittman
Yep, I Said It!
…and so did Romans 8:28 (NKJV) – “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
“One of the most used and misinterpreted bible verses is Romans 8:28. The misinterpretation is that when the scriptures promise ‘all things work together for good’ too many of us think this means a big house, nice car, and a fat bank account. Let’s not get it twisted. When it comes to certain circumstances, the term ‘good’ doesn’t necessarily mean we will personally be happy with the outcome or we won’t feel any pain, or we will come out on top financially. You see, ‘together for good’ does not always end up with our desire for what we think is the best outcome. The reality is that the ‘good’ is the experience we gain and grow through that will ultimately glorify us in eternity. The bottom line is the GOOD is when we are serving His purpose! So, whether a situation brings us pain or brings us suffering – let’s learn from it, grow through it, and let’s take comfort in the outcome knowing that no suffering or waiting we endure is wasted and it DOES have a meaningful purpose.” – #ToddCPittman
