We know that all things work together for good

Daily Light Devotions - September 21 - Morning

We know that all things work together for good...

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. 1 

Surely the wrath of man shall praise you; the remnant of wrath you will put on like a belt. 2 

As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. 3 

So let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future-- all are yours, and you are Christ's, and Christ is God's. 4 

For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God. So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 5 

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. 6
