I’ve been thinking about the mercy and grace of God. Memorizing Romans 8 has been such a blessing. Verses 29-32 have been working in my heart and mind. Especially the fact that my being saved was God’s idea all along.
The latest verse I’ve memorized in Romans 8 is “he who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also along with him graciously give us all things?” My Life Application Bible Commentary says: “God sacrificed his Son to save us; will he now invalidate that sacrifice by refusing to help and guide believers? No, instead, he promises to give us all things to bring us to the ultimate goal—our sanctification and glorification. These things come under the same guideline as the things in verse 28; they are experiences God will give us as he “works for the good” that he has planned for us.”
God’s will for us is good. It always has been. It always will be. Every command, every plan, every purpose, every word of God is for our good.
