God Is Working for Your Good BY RICK WARREN — APRIL 29, Friday
“Surely your goodness … will pursue me all the days of my life” (Psalm 23:6a NLT, second edition).
Even in the middle of your hurts, habits, and hang-ups, God is watching over you.
When King David says, “Surely your goodness will pursue me,” he’s not saying, “Surely only good things are going to happen to me!” He knew as well as anyone that bad things happen to good people.
David’s point is that God’s goodness will follow after, or pursue, him. No matter how bad or evil or difficult something seems, God will work it out for good.
It’s one of God’s great promises that he’s given to believers: We know that in everything that happens to us, God is working for our good — if we love God and are fitting into his plans (Romans 8:28). If you’re a believer, the Bible says all things are working together for good — not that all things are good — but working together for good.
There is no difficulty, dilemma, defeat, or disaster in the life of a believer that God can’t ultimately turn toward his purpose.
