Romans 8:28 states “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”. What does the word all mean? It means ALL! This means that the repossession, foreclosure, divorce, molestation, sickness, loss of your loved one, financial lack, business failure, bankruptcy, loneliness, depression, mental illness and every injurious situation that has come your way is actually working for you and not against you.
