But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive. Genesis 50:20 [NKJV]
Every challenge one encounters in life is always part of a plan. Of course the negative challenges are never easy when you’re going through it, but the bible tells us today that God makes it all good in the end. It doesn’t matter what someone might have said or did against you that have turned your life into a nightmare of sorts! God says your challenges that was meant for evil, was allowed in order to save you and the lives of countless many. You can’t even begin to fathom the lives that are going to be transformed through your testimony of how ‘you walked through the valley of the shadow of death, and came through it alive’! How God shut the mouth of the devourers, saved you from the debt collectors and the for-closers! How God made a way for you where there was no way, how He brought you back up, after you had hit rock bottom. Yes the frenemies may have lied ‘on’ you, they may have made you the scape goat and it’s all gotten too much that now, you may be looking for a way to end it all. But I am here to encourage you, YOur better days are before you, and know for a certain that they will come and many will celebrate it with you in Jesus name. Don’t give up just yet!
So it was, when his master heard the words which his wife spoke to him, saying, “Your servant did to me after this manner,” that his anger was aroused. Then Joseph’s master took him and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were confined. And he was there in the prison. Genesis 39:19-20 [NKJV]
Things may not work out as you may have planned it. People may have made up untrue stories about you, in order to curry favour or to get an ‘edge’. It will be painful. It will be devastating. It will be hurtful. And it would be straight out wrong. But that’s no excuse to throw in the towel, give in, and give up on your life. Then they would have worn, completely! Stay focused, stay encouraged, and keep on persisting in your cause. You will find in the end that, that disappointment may be that long awaited miracle shrouded in disguise!
Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.” Genesis 28:15 [NKJV]
You’re going to have one of those days when you wonder if things will ever work out. Don’t worry, you’re not alone in that train of thoughts, or else why would the world have given such thinking a name “neGaTive thINKing”? But today I want to encourage you, thoughts will always come and go, but the WORD of God and His WORDS will always stand the test of time! God’s words will always prevail! His words are not susceptible to our emotions, way of thinking, or to the whims of man. His words are final, and God’s thinking, words and plans for you are good, and regardless of how you may occasionally feel about them THEY WILL come to pass. And the most AMAZING aspect of it all, is that, even when you feel that God has abandoned you, GOD IS STILL WITH YOU, and is not about to leave you until your joy is full, until what He has promised is established in your life. You may be struggling a little today, but I’m here to remind you, that God is faithful a faithful God. He never promises and fails. He is dependable, trustworthy and more than able to do all that He has promised! God bless you folks.
Is anything too hard for the Lord? Genesis 18:14 [NKJV]
NO! Nothing, absolutely nothing is too hard for God! If nothing is impossible with God, why have you been limiting Him in the way you deal with your life’s issues? Go to Him, Go to Jesus, ask of His help, ask for His divine intervention; only He has the answers and can solve all of your life’s worries, nobody else can! Regardless of what the people around you say or how they say they can help, they can’t. They simply don’t have the wherewithal to. So stop letting the world / people around you deceive you into believing/thinking your issues can be solved by a think-thank or solver other than God. Only God can bring you out of all of life’s messes and it doesn’t cost you a ‘penny’! Jesus is free! He’s not a motivational speaker to get you out of a momentarily ‘funk’, but with Him in your life, His Holy Spirit will motivate you in all kinds of ways that you know that you know that He alone is God. And with Him you get Life Everlasting too. So stop looking to momentary fixes, look to Jesus, only He has the power to save you and deliver you from all of life’s challenges! Everything else is counterfeit!
Now if you haven’t tried Jesus, why haven’t you? What has been stopping you?
