We know that all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to his purpose. ~Romans 8:28
While this verse can be taken as very personal and applying to each individual who loves God and is called according to his purpose, it might also be taken to mean that he works things together for good for the body of believers according to his own sovereign plan. Given the limits of human understanding, it is usually impossible to see how circumstances, personal or global, are under God’s sovereign control; but the faithful person, called by God, will trustingly join with Him in the outworking of His good plan.
