How Firm a Foundation!
What is the significance of this “golden chain” in Romans 8:29–30 that charts God’s purpose from his foreknowing you all the way to his glorifying you? How do you, as a believer, know that all is working together for your good? It’s through knowing who God is, what God has done, what God is doing, and what God is going to do in and for you for his great glory. This is deep truth, I know, and it’s strange to hear it even mentioned in these self-centered, gimmick-geared days. But here it is as plain as day before our wondering eyes, written in the Word of God. And Paul is teaching us that this great truth lies foundationally under any real and true abiding assurance we may ever have in the world.
