Today’s Promise: Romans 8:28

We all set goals for ourselves, especially at the start of the new year. But what happens when we experience failure or when we slip up?  If we love the Lord, then we can depend on a promise found in Roman Chapter 8, one that gives us the grace to strive for our best without performance anxiety.

This year, I will be starting a series of short videos focusing on the promises of God.  I am a strong believer in promised-based living.  Each of these short video posts will feature a single promise.  I will also be posting scriptures with discussion on why we can trust the Promise Maker.

Here’s today’s promise.  Rest on it today!

Promise Links: Romans 8:28 (HCSB)

We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:26-28 (Message)

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.

Romans 8:28 (Amplified):

We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.

Commentary: People’s Commentary NT

Conditions: A promise to those who love God and that are called according to His purpose. See commentary link above for clarification.
