The promise of Romans 8:28-29

There is nothing- no circumstances, no trouble,
no testing- that can ever touch me until, first of
all it has gone past God and past Christ, right
through to me. If it has come that far, it has come
with a great purpose, which I may not under-
stand at the moment. But as I refuse to become
panicky, as I lift up my eyes to him and accept it
as coming from the throne of God for some great
purpose of blessing to my own heart, no sorrow

will ever disturb me, no trial will ever disarm me,
no circumstance will cause me to fret- for I
shall rest in the joy of what my Lord is- That is
the rest of victory.

-Alan Redpath on the promise of Romans 8:28-29
