All Things Work Together For Good…

‘That all things work together for the good of them that love God is a truth affording the highest consolation…All the attributes of God, all the offices of Christ, all the gifts and graces of the Holy Spirit, are combined for their good.  The creation of the world, the fall and redemption of man, all the dispensations of Providence, whether prosperous or adverse, all occurences and events – all things, whatsoever they be – work for their good.  They work together in their efficacy, in their unity, and in their connection.  They do not work thus of themselves: it is God that turns all things to the good of His children….All things are indeed working together in one complex plan in the providence of God for the good of those who love Him; but so far from working for good, or for the best of His enemies, everything is working to their final ruin.”

-Robert Haldane, from his commentary on Romans,P.393-394
