If God allows something bad, hard or tough to happen in your life, then you can count on and believe that it is ultimately for His glory.
Life is hard and you can expect to be hurt. It does not matter how hard you work to avoid it, the plain hard reality is that if you live long enough, then life is going to take a bite.
Often time the hurt and pain will come from those that you have allowed to come the closest to you.
Their closeness is one of the things that hurts so bad. You just can’t believe they would do or say some of the things they do and say, but they do and there is nothing fun about it!
Most of us have been through this at least once and many of us seem to have it playing like a broken record.
I was reading through my Bible and came across these words of FORGIVESS and FREEDOM that Joseph spoke to his brothers after their mistreatment of him, that took him on a horrible and very difficult journey.
His words help us to understand the attitude that we must posses, if we are to claim, experience and live in the victory that God has for us.
“You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.” Genesis 50:20
Others may do what they do to harm you, but if God allows it, then He has a plan to use it all for good.
The good that God wants to use it for, is to bring your life to a place where with and through your life; He can save many for His glory.
Hang in there, trust God and know that He has a plan bigger than anything you could dream or imagine.
