First you tell us which you think it might be - we can then advise you.

Patience - we are volunteers and have other things to do.

#3 seems the nearest.

"Whatever you may think, his action was all for the best" = his action was carried out with the best of intentions.

Thank you very much. My question refers to the entire expression "That's all for the best" which probably stands alone in the sentence but refers to a previous one.
Thank you a lot again.
Have a lucky day !
