Romans 15:4 says that “we, through the comfort of the scriptures might have hope“.
Romans 8:28 says “We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”.
The first verse tells us that the promises of the Bible and the truths about God it contains are designed to comfort us.
The second verse, Romans 8:28, tells us that God has the ability to cause good to come out of anything that happens.
Note that it does not say that all things are good in their nature. Perhaps the sense is God can cause good can come out of anything that happens, no matter how bad it is.
For example, the crucifixion of Jesus was the most sinful, evil thing that ever happened. It was a moment so dark the sun quit shining for a time. But God allowed it to happen and in the end it was the greatest most wonderful thing that ever happened! It was our salvation from sin!
