God Meant It For Good

Exodus 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

The story of Joseph recorded in the Bible is a great example of how God turns what seems like terrible trouble into something good. Joseph was thrown into a pit by his brothers and left for dead, falsely accused of a crime and thrown into prison, but God used his circumstances to save the nation of Israel from extinction. 

Bad things happen to good people, but God uses difficult situations to bring about good to His children. Maybe it’s the loss of a job and you feel that you’ll never find anything better, but God then gives you the opportunity you have always wanted. Your house is foreclosed on and you have to move, then God gives you a home that far surpasses the one you lost. Someone you love dearly dies through tragic circumstances and God uses your loved ones death to bring you to salvation.

These examples are true testimonies of people that we know who are now serving the Lord with gladness. If you are going through a difficult time in your life right now, trust the Lord to take that situation and turn it around for good. Do not get discouraged, these things do not happen overnight but sometimes it takes months or even years to be fulfilled.
