Jesse's Psalms Chapter 101 comment on 12/07/2022, 7:08am...


If you are referring to Psalm 138:8, I would say this is talking about God in His infinite wisdom perfecting our lives.

Romans 8:28 says, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

The word good used in this verse is the word AGATHOS, meaning spiritual good. Human good is KALOS. Spiritual good is AGATHOS.

That makes a big difference because if I'm looking at it religiously, (humanly), and on a horizontal physical plain, when it says "all thing work together for good," that means in the human, God's going to work things out good for me in the human and in the flesh.

No, this is spiritual good. Also, please notice that it doesn't say all things are good. It says that all things are going to be worked out for the good.

What's good and bad in the human, that's our judgment system. To God, everything is good because He's doing everything. And when we have things "go wrong," in God's vocabulary, that's not even in there. We might say, "Lord, things are going wrong." But to Him everything is going right.

We know that all things work together for good, and look at the two descriptions of the people for whom everything is working out for the good. It is to those who love God, and to those who are called according to His purpose.

Why? Because everything's going to work out according to the will of God, so that when I do pray for the Lord's will to be done, I can know because this is a promise right from God, that all things work together for the good. It's because He's working it out in our lives. He's perfecting us!
