“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)

I do not put much trust in “the power of positive thinking” where simply thinking and expecting good things to happen will in fact make those good things happen. But I do put my faith in the One who is over all things and who gives us grace to endure anything with an everlasting joy.

Faith in Him and in His power toward us gives us reason to “think positively” because we know that “all things work together” for our good. God knows what is best for us. Take comfort in knowing that He is in control of all things. No matter what happens to us here on earth we do know what we have to look forward to…and that is definitely good. “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost” (Rom 15:13).
