1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 3By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:1,3 NKJV
If the unseen force of faith ignited God’s own Word to form the worlds, then our faith can turn around any situation we may ever face.
Faith can turn the table on any attack of the devil. Faith can turn what the devil meant for evil into a blessing. Faith can turn anything around to your benefit, if you will believe and trust wholeheartedly in God’s goodness and mercy.
In the Book of Genesis we find the story of a man named Joseph who faced betrayal, unjust treatment, and suffered one set back after another. Despite crippling circumstances that included a stint in prison, Joseph continued to trust in the love, goodness, and faithfulness of God.
If God is a good God (He is), and you are walking with Him and walking in His Word, you can’t lose. No matter what happens in your life, even if you don’t understand what is going on, your faith will cause things to ultimately work out for your good.
Faith in God’s love and faithfulness to His Word creates an all-encompassing shield around you. When you refuse to fear, the devil can do nothing in your life. When your faith is in God, it is impossible for the devil to succeed against you. Every attack and negative circumstance must turn around for your good, as it did for Joseph.
Joseph ended up exactly where God wanted him. He was made second in command over all of Egypt, and God used him to save the lives of many people (see Genesis 50:20). God used all of the negative situations Joseph experienced to prepare and train him for success in his assignment in life.
Praise God that every challenge you face is nothing more than an opportunity to:
- Exercise your faith in His Word,
- Gain greater wisdom, and
- Become better equipped to handle the calling that is on your life.
Never crumble in the face of adverse situations. Your plans may not have worked out the way you expected, but God has everything in control. Faith in God and in His Word can turn anything around for your good!
Confession: I am more than a conqueror in all things. My faith is in God and in His Word. Anything the devil may try to use against me for evil will turn for my good as I fulfill God’s plan and purpose for my life.
