Rom. 8:28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
What an awesome passage of Scripture! The Lord is working everything out in my life according to His plan. Actually Paul was speaking out of his own experience. If anyone ever tasted adversity, it was the Apostle Paul. He was betrayed, slandered, falsely arrested, beaten, stoned, and shipwrecked. Yes, Paul knew about the struggles in this life. Through all of his struggles he had come to an amazing conclusion, the Lord was working through every circumstance in Paul’s life for the advance of the kingdom and for Paul’s ultimate good. From his decision to go to Macedonia, that led to beating and imprisonment, to his arrest in Jerusalem, that brought him to jail in Rome. Paul believed that the Lord was working through all these things for the good.
In verses 26 and 27 of Romans 8, Paul talks about supernatural prayer. The Lord actually anoints us to pray the will of God. The all-knowing God orchestrates events on the earth through our prayers. The Lord searches to and fro throughout the earth to find a heart turned toward Him. When He finds this heart, this person, He anoints them to pray. As we yield ourselves to the Lord, praying in the Spirit, we begin to pray the will of God. The Lord answers these prayers and orchestrates the events of our lives for our good. How incredible are the ways of the Lord! He plans the events of our lives and brings them to pass by anointing us to pray supernatural prayers according to the will of God. He is causing all things to work together for the good in our lives. What an awesome God!
