The Saga of Jacob - 3

"Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and ye will take Benjamin away; all these things are against me" (Gen. 42:36).

Even when life surrounds us with major difficulties, this course of things does not work against the believer. It may seem to.
It may work against his earthly fortune.
It may even appear to defeat him.
But in the eyes of God and in the light of eternity all things work together for good.

The world laughs at such doctrine as childish and rails on at Fate. Well, all things do not work together for good to everybody.
The unbeliever has no part in it.
Only to them who love God and are His does it apply.

And the world cannot appreciate such simple trust in Him until it first has learned truly to love Him.
Of course, it laughs and is sceptical and calls it blissful ignorance when we decide to believe God when He says:
"All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose"    (Romans 8:28).

And so many of us who believe still doubt. We appreciate our verse, but we do not appropriate it. Jesus might have said in Gethsemane or at Calvary, "All these things are against Me," but in the resurrection He proved that all things work together for good to Christ and to the Christlike.

It is either Jacob's attitude: "Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and ye will take Benjamin away; all these things are against me"    (Genesis 42:36).
or that of the Lord Jesus: "All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose"    (Romans 8:28). Where do you stand?
