It’s Working For Your Good
(Genesis 50:20, NLT)
You intended to harm me, but GOD intended it all for good. HE brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.
Joseph went through thirteen years of betrayal, slavery, false accusations, and imprisonment. He had many reasons to become bitter, but you never read that Joseph had a bad attitude. He understood the principle that everything he was experiencing was serving GOD’s plan, including the bad breaks and unfair things. After Joseph interpreted Pharaoh’s dream and was made prime minister of Egypt, he even declared that the very harm his brothers meant for him was instrumental and necessary to getting him to the throne and his destiny of saving their lives.
Are you upset about something that’s actually serving HIS plan? GOD will use people who are against you to move you into your purpose. GOD uses the bad breaks, the delays, the setbacks, and the injustices to move you into your destiny. The things you don’t like, and the things that are taking longer than you thought, are serving HIS plan. Keep reminding yourself that it’s not working against you, it’s working for you. It will lead you to new levels.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
FATHER, thank YOU that what so often looks and feels like trouble is really YOUR hand moving me toward YOUR purpose. Thank YOU that it’s going to lead me into a new level of my destiny that I could never experience without it. I believe it’s working for me, not against me. In JESUS’ Name, Amen.
