Romans 8:28

‘‘Moreover we know that to those who love God, who are called according
to His plan, everything that happens fits into a pattern for good.’’
Romans 8:28 (Ph)

1. RELEASE MY RESENTMENT

‘‘Jesus said, ‘Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.’’’ Luke 23:34 (NIV)

2. EMPATHIZE WITH THOSE EXPERIENCING THE SAME STRUGGLE

‘‘Jesus answered him, ‘I tell you the truth, today you will be with Me in paradise.’’’ Luke 23:43 (NIV)

3. SHIFT THE FOCUS FROM MY PAIN TO THE NEEDS OF OTHERS

‘‘When Jesus saw His mother there, and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, ‘Dear woman, here is your son,’ and to the disciple, ‘Here is your mother.’ From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.’’ John 19:26-27 (NIV)

4. TAKE MY TOUGH QUESTIONS TO GOD

‘‘About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?’--which means, ‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?’’’ Matthew 27:46 (NIV)

5. ADMIT MY NEED AND HUMBLY ASK FOR HELP

‘‘Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, ‘I am thirsty.’’’ John 19:28 (NIV)

6. LOOK FOR THE PURPOSE IN MY PAIN

‘‘When He had received the drink, Jesus said, ‘It is finished.’ With that, He bowed His head and gave up His Spirit.’’ John 19:30 (NIV)

7. SURRENDER MY PROBLEM TO GOD

‘‘Jesus called out with a loud voice, ‘Father, into Your hands I commit My Spirit.’ When He had said this, He breathed His last.’’ Luke 23:46 (NIV)
