Romans 8:28 says,
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose.”
What are the stipulations for God to cause all things to work for good? Anyone who has accepted Jesus is called, called to spread the good news, called to walk the walk, but what about love? How do we love God? To love is to lay one’s life for another, to lay down our life to God is to lay down our ways and our thoughts for His ways and His thoughts. When you give up your way of doing things for His then He causes all things to work for good.
