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

For the Good

If you are a chocolate lover, then Canada offers you something very good indeed. Just a few giant corporations pump out most of the world’s mass market candy bars – but not always with the same goods under that familiar-looking wrapper. According to a Hershey’s senior advisor, “Canadian chocolate is higher in fat and it is a higher particle size.” Hershey’s now offers a separate recipe for the more discriminating Canadian chocolate palate. Canadian chocolate offers a much more creamier, velvety experience.

There are some Bible verses that just seem to be favourites. People hang them on their walls or post them on their fridges or mirrors. They serve as a good reminder of God’s promises and love. One of them is 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.” To use a common phrase these days, God has this. There are two caveats here – this promise is for you if you love God and are walking in His call upon your life. God has a plan for those who love Him. He calls us according to the gifts and talents that we are given by Him as He knits us together. There is no better place to be for a child of the King than in the centre of God’s will for our lives. That is the place of peace in the midst of all that life throws our way. When you love God and are living according to His will for your life, you have the assurance that no matter what comes your way, God is working for your good.

These have been words from the heart.
