28 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. 29 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.
Honestly I have quoted verse 28 many times, I have sought the truth of this passage, wrestled with it, never being able to reconcile it with this one thing. But verse 29, it was not familiar to me.
|He uses my broken desperate need to conform me to the image of His Son.|
And dear precious one reading these words, these words are for YOU. Broken, lovely You, whom He has foreknown and predestined. The dark bad things, the evil things are not His plan for you. But the good He can make out of them is far more than we can hope for.
