You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboy
Bible Verse Genesis 50:20
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Responding to the pleading of his brethren after the death of their father, Joseph extenuates their fault, from the consideration of the great good which God wonderfully brought out of it, which, though it should not make them the less sorry for their sin, yet might make him the more willing to forgive it.
Genesis 50:20 You thought evil (to disappoint the dreams), but God meant it unto good, in order to the fulfilling of the dreams, and the making of Joseph a greater blessing to his family than otherwise he could have been.
From the above, we are are able to deduce that when God makes use of men’s agency for the performance of His counsels, it is common for Him to mean one thing and them another, even the quite contrary, but God’s counsel shall stand. Isaiah 10:7.
Again, God often brings good out of evil, and promotes the designs of His providence even by the sins of men, not that He is the author of sin, far be it from us to think so but His infinite wisdom so overrules events, and directs the chain of them, that, in the issue, that ends in His praise which in its own nature had a direct tendency to His dishonour as the putting of Christ to death, Acts 2:23. This does not make sin the less sinful, nor sinners the less punishable, but it redounds greatly to the glory of God’s wisdom.
It must be noted that those that love God face one persecution or the other while God seems to be looking elsewhere. Mind you, it will eventually end in praise.
It is God that Daniel was praying to before he was thrown into the den of lions, God didn’t intervene, but at the end, Daniel didn’t just come out unhurt, the name of the Lord God was glorified.
Likewise, the three Hebrew boys that were faithfully serving God were thrown into the fiery furnace. Instead of God to intervene, He joined them there. Isaiah 43:2-3. The consuming fire burnt the rope with which they were tied and prevented the fiery furnace from burning His children.
What are you passing through that seems as if God will not answer your prayers. Is your present situation contrary to the dream God has shown you of yourself, all you need to do is to examine yourself whether you love God like Joseph did. If you do, your story will end in glory and Hallelujah will be your testimony at last.
However, how can you claim you love God if you discountenance the precious blood shed by His son on the cross for you? That is if you are not born again.
Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Savior now and become God’s lover.
Then everything, whether good or bad will work in your favour.
I pray that every situation we are passing through now will work for our good in Jesus name.
Have a wonderful day in Jesus name.
