“But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.” Genesis 50:20
Beloved, I want you to look back at your life today, to those season of loss, pains, lack, backwardness and calamity and be grateful to God for them. I want to let you know that those things you felt were evil or were disappointments were actually the workings the enemy which the Lord God Almighty turned in your favour. A song writer wrote a song and a line strikes a chord in my heart. It says, “through it all, I have learnt to trust in Jesus, I have learned t to trust in God.”
Beloved, the hell you went through brought you out to the season of refreshment you find yourself in now. In the same vein, the hardship you are going through now will also bring you to a place of blessings.
Joseph had a dream where his siblings and parents bowed down to him and he was their lord. His brothers hated him for it and thought to destroy him and his dreams, so they put him in a pit and then sold him into slavery. Little did they know that God used that process to mature Joseph to be able to sit on the throne of Egypt and be a source of succor to his family years later. Likewise Jesus, the devil thought to end Him by crucifying Him on the cross, not knowing that he was making a mistake. Jesus came to die to save the world so that when He rose, those who believe in Him also rose up to new life in Him, free from the bondage of the devil. The death on the cross was the only way to achieve that, so what the devil planed for evil turned out to fulfill Divine purpose.
Beloved, know this; what you are passing through is not to destroy you. I Corinthians 10:13 says, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” So it’s really not a disappointment or a setback. It is rather a process to the fulfillment of God’s promise in your life. The enemy might mean it for evil or to bury your dream, but God is working all things out for your good.
Genesis 45:1-8, 50:1-20
Saved from accident
I want to thank God for preserving the life of my son. He does not know how to drive well but he drove out with my car. Somewhere along the road, according to him, he a trailer almost ran into him. How he was saved, he cannot explain. God did not allow me shed tears of sorrow. I return all the glory to Him.
