God works it all for good (Gen 50)

Updated: Feb 14, 2022

When we are going through a really trying time it's almost impossible to see how God could possibly work it all together for good.

After Jacob died, his 10 older sons were afraid that Joseph would seek revenge for selling him into slavery.

But in Genesis 50:20 Joseph said to his brothers, "As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good."

I can recall times when people have had evil intentions against me. And when the deception was revealed, I was shocked. But I'm reminded here that rather than taking vengeance, I need to trust God. Because I've also seen God work evil intentions of others, for His good.

This also reminds me of Romans 8:28, "God causes all things to work together for good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose."

Dear Lord, Thank you for helping me see the application for this in my own life. Lord, when people try to hurt me, please help me seek You and your will, first before responding. Please help me remember that even in those times, You are in control. So even then Lord, I will trust You.
