God is good. Everything is working together for good to who?

Galatians 3:29
  • And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.

If we belong to Christ, then we also belong to Abraham's Seed who is Jesus Christ Himself. 

We are the offspring of Abraham according to God's promise.

This means that all God's promises are fulfilled by God and it does not depend on our own effort for them to be fulfilled.

This should give us relief and humility that we are not the ones who make God's promises come true. It is God Himself doing His work in us and through us.

We need to believe that promise of God and that is faith.

Sometimes, it is difficult to figure out how our faith and God's promises work together.

We learn about God's sovereignty that He works all things together for good (Romans 8:28), and we hear that truth and actively believe that truth.

In the midst of doubts, we learn to hold onto God's promises that He is good to us in the end. Even though in the process called life seems to deal to us a bad hand. Everything is working together for good to those who love Jesus and are called according to His purpose.
