Working Out

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. Romans 8:28
I've used this verse as a helpful crutch for myself and for fellow sojourners who are struggling through difficult times. It brings hope to God's people as we learn to trust in His power to create good things out of bad things. I was meditating on that verse this morning and focused on the deeper implications. It's not that God just wants to make our situation good--He is working through these circumstances to make  us good. He is constantly striving to reshape our character and to make it stronger in His perfect image. This isn't just a show of His power to transform the current status of our life into something better. It's His most powerful work of all--the molding of imperfect people into brand new reflections of His perfection. That's the perfect and complete goodness we are longing for in all circumstances.
