Do we have faith that the word of God is true? If we know God and are called according to his purposes, then we know that all things work together for good. This promise often goes beyond our understanding, yet it is true. Even without having the full explanation of many situations, if we know and trust the Lord with this verse we can receive the peace and contentment of the Holy Spirit to contend with anything we face. Jesus is our shepherd, and He will lead us even through the valley of the shadow of death. We must regularly remind ourselves of this vibrant, mighty, glorious truth!
Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
