Good causes all things to work together for good.
Romans 8:28 “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love Good, drugstore to those who are called according to His purpose.”
Have you ever played billiards? If you haven’t, what you do is rack the balls on a pool table, hit the cue ball with a cue stick, and try to hit the solid or striped balls into the pockets. The person that hits the “8” ball and all the solid or striped balls into the pockets first, wins!
God loves us, and is always trying to get us to do the right thing.
Imagine this, God will be the person trying to hit all the striped balls into the pockets. We are the striped balls. The pockets are the good things in life. The solid balls are the obstacles in the way of getting us the good things. Satan is the “8” ball.
This means that God is always trying to put the circumstances on us to do the right things. When God uses His tools He can overcome Satan, even when Satan and all of his non-believers are trying to block God’s shot. That will never work since God’s a pro at the game! All God has to do is hit the stripes in just the right pattern and all of the solids will have no use. God will eventually make all the balls in, and when He is done getting us in, He’ll sink Satan too!
