“Even when people do hurtful things to you, God has a plan to turn the experiences into something positive in your life.”
A thought by Miles McPherson, (2009-11-01) from his book, DO Something!: Make Your Life Count (p. 33). Baker Books. Kindle Edition.
If we could really believe and live that but we usually whine at God and gripe at why He is letting this happen to me. But if we really understood that God will work all the bad in a Christian’s life into good.
You see, Satan throws these things at us to hurt us and to hurt Him but before it gets to us it goes through God’s love and He changes the purpose. The purpose was to hurt us but God changes the purpose for our good.
Not all things in your life are good. There is a lot of rotten stuff out there. God has the power to change them, to protect you from them but He may have a different plan. Now you can fight Him and not trust Him and it will truly hurt you. You have a choice and God will not force His way on you but if you trust Him. If you trust Him He will strengthen you in your area of weakness, He may move you in a total different direction, a better place, and for sure He will work it all out for your good. Just trust Him to turn the experience into something positive in your life.
So how are you doing?
