God Intends It For Good

God Intends It For Good

Genesis 50:20“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” (NIV 1978)

My Musing – It is often hard to understand some things that happen in our lives.  When they are happening, we see only the negative and despair because of it.  But God has a plan for our lives, and even the “bad” things that come into our lives will be used by God for some good that will outweigh the bad.

My Advice – Bad things happen to all of us.  You do not have to be happy about them.  But you can be assured that God will somehow use it for a greater good, whether it is developing our character, being a witness for others, or something else.  Sometimes the good that comes (and we may never know about it in this life) could not have come about any other way.
