Intended for good

Your Word for 24 July 2024

Exodus 1:12                ESV
‘But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and the more they spread abroad.’

10185God can take what was intended for evil and turn it into good.
A few years ago I was speaking to a friend of mine. He began to tell me how, several years prior, his boss, at his place of employment, hatched plans to get rid of him. He was devastated to learn of this and realized that there was nothing he could do. He felt as if his life was being destroyed. Several weeks later it happened and he was without a job. But God had a plan. This very thing, that was intended for evil turned around. Out of this desperate situation, he stepped out into his own business and this has been a source of great blessing both to him and his family for many years.
Often we cannot see the sense in a situation when we are in the thick of things, but God can and wants to use things that were meant to destroy us for our good.

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

God can turn any situation around.

Romans 8:28 and we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans.
