I love evidence of how great God is. This week's April ice storm has been a good example. I've never seen ice quite like this before. We are on snow day no. 3 here and doing fine- we still have power and some groceries. Thank you, Lord!
From the Piper Devotional App. Romans 8:28 We know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
If you live inside this massive promise, your life is more solid and stable than Mount Everest.
Nothing can blow you over when you are inside the walls of Romans 8:28. Outside of it, all is confusion and anxiety and fear and uncertainty.
Once you walk through the door of love into the massive, unshakable structure of Romans 8:28, everything changes. There come into your life stability and depth and freedom. You simply can't be blown over anymore. The confidence that a sovereign God governs for your good all the pain and all the pleasure that you will ever experience is an incomparable refuge and security and hope and power in your life.
When God's people really live by the future grace of Romans 8:28- from measles to the mortuary- they are the freest and strongest and most generous people in the world.
Their light shines and people give glory to their Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)
I hope this will be as encouraging to you as it was to me.
