We may have seen a lot of troublesome and difficult situations in our lives, but our faith never stumbled. We know that everything happen for a cause. We may believe that there is no gain without some pain. This is the reason why during the toughest times in our lives, we held on and fought our difficulties, worries, and pains and casting all of our cares upon Him (1 Peter 5:7), we know that there is joy in the morning.
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
The words these things refer to God’s purpose (Romans 8:28-30). If God has done everything from foreknowledge to glorification for us, all adversaries are powerless.
Friends, we know:
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
