All Things Work Together for Good 

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

I read about a farmer who had a big brush pile of debris that he was going to burn.

He noticed that a little bird had built a nest in that brush pile, so he destroyed the nest.

When he came back days later, he found the bird rebuilding the nest. The farmer destroyed the nest again. But the bird built again, and again the farmer destroyed it.

Finally, the little bird gave up.

I can just imagine that little bird going home and saying to his family, “I just don’t know why all our good plans of building a home are not working.”

Well, there was an unseen hand that was doing something that the bird may have thought was bad, but was really good.

Read Romans 8:28 again. Notice that the verse doesn’t say all things are good. All things are not good. There are some terrible things in this world. The point is that only God is good! He alone can work all things together for your good.
