“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
This is a very important passage of Scripture when it comes to living with a Biblical worldview. We live in enemy territory where our enemy wants to do bad things to us (Job 1-2). Our God, however, is bigger than our enemy. He can take what our enemy means for bad and turn it around to be used for His glory.
We buried my friend yesterday. It was not easy. Yesterday would have been even harder without the hope the Scriptures give. I have great confidence where my friend is and that I will see them again.
This certainty (Hebrews 11:1) is what gives us the ability to filter whatever comes our way – even the tragic death of a loved one – through the Word of God and know that our God can make something good out of something so terribly wrong. I know from personally filtering this very painful situation through the Word of God that God’s promise of peace is not just a hope, but a reality. I hurt, but I’m at peace. This is what living with a Biblical worldview promises – living each day God’s way has a joyful, though not always easy, ending.
It has been said, “There are times in everyone’s life when something constructive is born out of adversity . . . when things seem so bad that you’ve got to grab the truth and let it run it’s course.” Something good will come out of this very bad situation. This is not fantasy. It is fact – God can indeed turn lemons into lemonade.
