Billy Graham on Romans 8:28

Working Together For Good

We might never have had the songs of Fanny Crosby had she not been afflicted with blindness. George Matheson would never have given the world his immortal song, “O Love That Will Not Let Me Go,” had it not been for his passing through the furnace of affliction. The “Hallelujah Chorus” was written by George Frederick Handel when he was poverty-stricken and suffering from a paralyzed right side and right arm. Affliction may be for our edification and Christian development. Sickness is one of the “all things” which work together for good to them that love God. Don’t resent it. Don’t be embittered by it.

Daily Prayer

You do not make mistakes, Father. If sorrow comes into my life, let me use it to help others know about You.

ROM 8:28 [NKJV]

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.

  1. I have an old plaque on my wall with Rom 8:28–it’s barely readable now, but I’ve hung onto that verse during the worst of times, and I suspect there will still be worse ones to come. But the good news is that God has brought me through all my Yesterdays, He is here with me Today–and I’ve no doubt He waits ahead in Tomorrow. God bless you BIG. Sis Cj
