As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. Genesis 50:20
For Good, Not Evil
Sometimes, you must have some rude awakenings before you can have a spiritual awakening.
I've heard it said that some people look up only when they're flat on their backs!
Amazing what we often declare as misfortune, bad luck, bad people, and bad choices are just the things that can reveal the glory and majesty of God's love for us.
Today is a day to think about the tough things that have happened in your life and see how God was or is working.
What are some circumstances and relationships that have awakened you to the goodness of God?
How did God orchestrate His grace in these circumstances and people?
How has your view of "bad" things changed as you have grown in Christ?
Lord, forgive us for our self-centered, demanding thinking; this life is all about us. Awaken us to Your love for us, through us, and for others. May we love You with all our heart, soul, mind, and being! Amen
