More on Romans 8:28

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

We don't have trouble believing this verse when we've made a good, sound decision. It's when we've made an absolute mess that the trouble comes. But this verse carries no qualifications for those that belong to the Lord. That's worth emphasizing - This verse carries no qualifications for the believer. Our wise decisions and obedience work for our good. Our unwise decisions and disobedience work for our good. We are never ultimately backed into a corner.
