Romans 8:28 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.
Do all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his PLAN? No, the word used in this wonderful verse is PURPOSE. I hear people talk often about God’s plan of salvation, or, God’s plan for your life. But God has never planned anything, but purposes ALL THINGS. All things work together for the good of God’s people, and it is according to HIS PURPOSE.
Men make plans. But God does everything on purpose. One says, I had a vacation planned but I had to re-schedule because of a death in the family. Another might say, I planned to save a hundred a month, but since I got my hours cut at work, I can only save ten! A couple claims, we plan to have children soon after we are married, only to find out that because of some medical reason, they are not able to do so. The word “PLAN” means a proposal for doing or achieving something. Psalm 115:3 But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased. God does not make proposals, He makes PROMISES on PURPOSE and they all always come to pass. David Eddmenson
