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.
