For Good

Re:Verse passage – Genesis 50:15-20 (day seven)  

As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good. Gen 50:20

I am sure that Satan rejoiced the moment that Joseph was thrown into the pit. I’m sure he laughed thinking he had won this battle, but the story wasn’t finished yet. God meant it for good. We have seen this in our own lives. There are those “God, what are doing?” moments where we are unable to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It seems as if God has abandoned us and neglected our prayers. It seems like Satan won. Sometimes it takes hours, sometimes it takes years, but there is usually a point where you look back and you see that it was God working all along. He was leading you through the valley of the shadow death so that you might come out on the other side stronger and that there was no other way to explain it than He was in control.

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Rom 8:28

One thought on “For Good”

  1. Sometimes it seems to me that God is working in a zig-zag pattern, when we want him to go straight to the problem.
    Then, when we look back we can see that He knew what He was doing for us all the time. How great is our God!!
