But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive (Genesis 50:20 NKJV).
Did you know that God can take the very thing that looks like a total disaster in your life and turn it into a wonderful victory?
He can turn your tears of sorrow into tears of joy, and He will help you keep that joy in your heart even during your adversity.
The words in the scripture above were spoken by Joseph, a man who went through great adversity time after time. Despite being sold into slavery and sentenced to prison, he eventually became the prime minister of a nation. Joseph held fast to the vision God had given him as a young man; as a result, God turned his situation around.
I don’t know what kind of trial you may be going through today, but I know this: If you will be patient and hold fast to God’s Word, He will turn your situation around and give you total victory.
God can use the evil thing Satan has brought against you as a tool for deliverance and victory. Although you may be looking at a disaster in the natural, God can turn it into the greatest blessing you’ve ever experienced.
The apostle Paul wrote, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11 NKJV). God is for you, not against you. Take your stand today on the Word of God, knowing that despite the trial you may be facing, God will turn it around.
Confession: I refuse to succumb to the trials and evil tidings the devil puts before me in this natural life. I take my stand firmly on the Word of God, knowing that God is for me and He will turn this situation around for my good.
