Do All Things Work Together For Good
Today on Relentless Truth John discusses Philippians 3. Paul is teaching theology, doctrine, argumentation and apologetics, but he also teaches how to correct in love and grace.
▼ Show Notes

Can we really rely on Romans 8:28? Do we really know that all things work together for good? This passage isn’t teaching that all things will turn out well for us.

Self-Reliance

I have a cold, we had our special needs, adopted cat euthanized due to illness, our daughter is about to get married, and my parents are experiencing significant health challenges. In this episode, I discuss these items and others in the context of trust that God does cause all things to work together for good. I tend to talk a good game when it comes to trusting God, but when I’m really under pressure, I tend to become a self-sufficient secularist who frets and struggles.

The sin of self-reliance is such a common one, and yet, it is silly in a sense. It is absurd to think that I can be sufficient apart from God. It is humbling to think about the fact that God is on the throne and I am not. It is also encouraging to know that the outcomes are not all on me and that I can trust in Him.

God’s Sovereignty

God is sovereign and we can trust in Him completely. I want to encourage us to rest in Him alone in this episode. The tendency to wrestle with life and rely on ourselves began with Adam and Eve, and it will continue to be a challenge for us during our time on this earth. But we can rely on God knowing that all things do work together for good.
