God’s hand in our lives leaves no place untouched. Even that which seemingly is working against us is used by our Father to fulfill His Own good purpose in our lives.
A powerful example of this is demonstrated in the life of Joseph. His brothers had sold him into slavery. In what would appear to many as a very sad and unfortunate turn of events, Joseph saw a divine appointment: “God meant it for good.”
But as for you, you thought evil against me; but God meant it for good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive (Genesis 50:20).
Do not be discouraged in your severest of trials. Trust God’s steady, unfailing hand in all that we experience – in the “good” as well as in the “evil.” The knowledge that “God meant it for good” can settle the tired heart and bring peace to the worried mind.
Father has a plan, He is in control. Rest in that.
