I heard about a Bible college professor who was driving with his wife when their car was involved in a serious accident. When the professor regained consciousness, he was still at the scene of the accident. He saw rescue workers pull a covering over the still form of his wife, and he realized immediately that she had not survived. Not knowing whether he himself would live or die, the professor urgently called for someone to come to him. He did not ask for medical attention; he wanted to send a message. He said, “Tell my students that Romans 8:28 is still true!”
Romans 8:28 says, “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.”
Really? In all things?
God says it, so it must be true. Our heavenly Father can bring good out of the worst situation you could imagine. Somehow, God can take any injustice, accident, illness or death and make something good happen out of that tragedy.
Remember, no matter what happens to you or around you, God is ultimately in charge. Let us trust him to do what he does best—to turn evil into something good.
