“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.” – Romans 8:28 (KJV)

The child of God is not totally insulated from afflictions. No wonder His Word says, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all” (Psalms 34:19).

Beloved, you could be going through many challenges as you read this gospel. You may feel like giving up or quitting Christianity. The opening scripture wants to encourage you to press forward because your challenges and afflictions will work for your good. Thus, as a child of God, you have been called for a purpose, and God is training you through these challenges to fulfill that purpose.

Beloved, the challenges and afflictions are working toward your good. David went through many challenges in his father’s house as well as in the hands of King Saul. Nevertheless, he did not quit; all the challenges and afflictions molded him to be a great King in all Israel and Judah after King Saul’s death (2 Samuel 2:1–4, 5:1–5).

Take charge by encouraging yourself in the Word of God, and your challenges and afflictions will become bread for you toward your success (Romans 8:37).

Beloved, love people and be kind to them because God will use people to turn things in your favor so that you can continually be a blessing to many. Hallelujah! Glory to God!
