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. (Romans 8:28)

It’s hard to see at times, but it is true. We often demand things from God. We question the valleys He places us in. We ask about our situations and circumstances. Many of us often forget the above scripture.

I am as guilty as the next person about questioning God’s moves at times, but I would like to give a real life example of how the above is true.

After several miscarriages, a doctor removed my wife’s fallopian tubes. It became physically impossible to have a child without in vitro fertilization (IVF). I thought I had good insurance with my company until we went to the doctor and found out IVF is not covered. In fact, most insurance companies consider it “elective” surgery and refuse to cover it (except in some states where law deems it must be covered). For the next couple of years, I worked hard, trying to save $12,000 so we could have a baby. Then I lost my job. I spent a year looking for a new one and went through all my savings.

Near the end of that year, I began questioning God. Then I gave up. I prayed God would either give me a job or take me from this earth. Babies were the last thing on my mind at that time. A couple of days later, I got a call for a good job. Not only do I have the potential to make much more than I had been, but IVF is actually covered by the insurance. We had our first consultation yesterday for a whopping $30 copay. The usual $10,000 fees are all covered. The only thing left now is to find out if the meds, which usually run around $2,000 are covered. Either way, it doesn’t matter. Two grand is easier to save than twelve!

God is faithful. He works everything to the good of those that trust in Him.
