Romans 8:28 : And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8: 28-32
SECURED BY GODS PURPOSE AS AFFECTING OUR STANDING. SECURED BY GOD’S LOVE AS AFFECTING OUR STATE.
God’s purpose in working “all things” for good to His people. God’s purpose in conforming us to His Son. God’s purpose in conforming His Son for us. God’s purpose in giving “all things” with His Son.
My Commentary: Apparently God is not working for good “in all things” for unbelieving people. This doesn’t mean he doesn’t love all people. He is certainly available to all, but it takes a decision on our part to invite Him in and let Him act in our lives.
Further: Perhaps this gives us understanding into why bad things happen to good people; and the question will be asked if these good people were so holy and righteous, why do bad things happen to them? To this I say look at the story of Job.
Perhaps this gives us insight into all the evil things that some people say God permits and seems to do nothing about. We see through a glass darkly. Some things are not meant for total understanding the side of death but will be revealed in eternity. Upon us all a little rain must fall. We are all subject to the laws of nature to a certain degree. Sometimes God acts in a supernatural way that overrides the natural laws of man, the earth and the universe.

Study, study, study, I feel compelled to say that the “spirit of lawlessness” that is running rampant in our country is indicative of the coming Tribulation and to usher in the Antichrist. Don’t get lost in the shuffle.
