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 NIV
God is Intentional
Canadian police say a driver committed a “deliberate act” when he rammed a pick-up truck into pedestrians in a small town in the eastern province of Quebec, killing at least two people and injuring nine others. The truck intentionally hit several people this past March 14, outside a microbrewery in Amqui, then continued for another 400 to 500 metres along the road, swerving and striking more people. Quebec provincial police said two victims – men in their 60s and 70s, respectively – were killed and nine other people were injured.
The world teaches us that we are just a product of chance, billions of years of evolution, the survival of the fittest. They want you to believe their hopeless theology that there is no intelligent designer, no Creator, no loving God. No wonder so many young people have no hope and no boundaries. And when life gets tough, it is even more hopeless. The Bible paints an entirely different picture. Romans 8:28, one of the most beloved verses in the Bible, presents a great truth and a wonderful promise: “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.” Look at what this one verse teaches: first, there is a God who is in control of the universe, a Creator who has carefully designed it all and who cares deeply for all He has created, including us. He loves us and has a plan for our lives. He has our best in mind, and even when things are challenging, even when we are grieving and in pain, we have the assurance that God loves us and is working out His plan.
These have been words from the heart.
