Everything is Against Me
Those circumstances, which to the dim eye of Jacob's faith wore a hue so somber were at that very moment developing and perfecting the events which were to shed around the evening of his life, the halo of a glorious and cloudless sunset! God was working all things together for his good!
Just so, troubled soul, the "much tribulation" will soon be over and as you enter the "kingdom of God" you shall then see, no longer "through a glass darkly" but in the unshadowed sunlight of the Divine presence, that "all things" did indeed "work together" for your personal and eternal good!
[A. W. Pink]
Genesis 42:36 ... And Jacob their father said unto them, Me have ye bereaved of my children: Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and ye will take Benjamin away: all these things are against me.
Psalm 3:1 ... Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
Romans 8:28 ... 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.❤
