<093> Thesis:   The reasons we can be solidly confident begin with "foreknowledge". Introduction:   In our study last week we saw that the most fundamental characterization of those for whom all things work together for good is that they are "the called according to purpose". The issue of "purpose" is, at root, the reality that God has never done anything that did not have a "purpose" in view and that there are as many "purposes" as there are actions, but there is only one ultimate "purpose". It was for that "purpose" that God "called" individuals into His kingdom and glory. Now, as we move into 8:29-30, we see that Paul is giving his rationale for why we "know" that all things work together for our good as "the called" who "love The God".
