The Bible says God Is Working All Things For My Good!!! Or Does It???

By buckeyebkd | Jesus-is-the-only-way | 21 Jun 2021


How many times have you heard someone say "well you know the Bible says God is working all things for my good". I'm telling you I myself have heard this more times then I can count. I've even heard it preached countless times. Well what does the Bible really say about this??? 

Romans 8:28 KJV

28 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.

So all things work together for good to them that love God that's the same thing right? Well there's one big word missing here "MY". Why are we so self centered and self absorbed that we put the word my in there when it's not? Without the "My" it completely changes the meaning. I really like the way the Complete Jewish Bible translates this verse.

Romans 8:28 Complete Jewish Bible  

28 Furthermore, we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called in accordance with his purpose;

So here it says "The good" which is the same thing that the KJV intended. The good means He's working everything to His perfect plan. If He's blessing me spiritually it's so that I can become who he intends me to become to fulfill His perfect plan. My good means He's blessing me in the physical world with material things like houses, cars, money, etc... So basically what it's really saying is that in all things God works together with those who love him to bring about what is good according to His perfect plan.

 

I want to end by giving honor where honor is due. Thank you Abba Father for keeping your hand upon me and my life. Thank you Jesus for being my Lord and Savior and for dying on the cross so that I could have eternal life. Thank you Holy Spirit for giving me guidance, discipline, comfort, and for being so much more to me than just a tongue talker.
