What is “God’s purpose”?
"The purpose of God guarantees "good" for His people. For them, this is not necessarily ease and quiet, but being like Christ (vv. 17-23, 29). God's providence rules in such a way as to ensure that everything that happens to us is working for our ultimate good, which Paul immediately identifies as our becoming conformed to the image of Christ (v. 29, Eph. 1:3-14)."- Reformation Study Bible, pg. 2089.
Order of salvation matters. It helps us see the bigness of God and increases our joy 1000 fold.
