God has made a promise that all things are working together for good The condition for this promise is that we love God and obey His calling for our life otherwise the opposite may happen as Jonah quickly found out. Today as you are reading this teaching, whatever adversity may be affecting your life, say out loud right now, “All things are working together for good because I love God and I am called according to His purpose.” It is much easier in blessing to look back and see God’s...
