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.
In all that you might be going through right now, are you cognizant of the fact that God’s primary intent with you is to use your life to save many others? While trouble looks destructive to you, God is in the business of harvesting great fruit from the things the enemy does to try and take you out.
The devil didn’t attack you so that good could come of it, but God turns it around for good. There are some things that will happen to you and to your family that look as if they are totally wrecking your future, but that is the moment when God will step in and use what happened to you to save many others.
Don’t stay on the floor when everything you hoped for seems to have fallen apart. If you will refuse to get off the Potter’s wheel at such times, others will stand on higher ground because of you. Satan has desired to have you, but the Lord is praying for you that your faith will not fail, and that bitterness will not flood your soul because of these things. No, the enemy will not have the last word.
Don’t let the depression snatch your destiny away. The worst thing is not the pain that tragedy brings, the worst things would be for you to take your destiny and surrender it to the devil!
Just because others are waiting for you to go down; they saw life bite you like the snake bit the Apostle Paul, and now they are waiting for you to give up, does not mean you have to do it. They have concluded that this is too great a blow for you to ever recover from, but all the while the Lord is there. All the time you are crying because there doesn’t seem to be any purpose in it, His divine purpose is still being worked out.
In the times of the Old Testament, it was an accepted practice that olives had to be pressed to release the oil, which was burned in the lamps. This is a picture of our lives too. When we are pressed, we might not perceive it yet because it takes a while, but the oil of the anointing is about to start flowing in our lives in far greater measure than ever before. Stay with the Lord today and thank Him for His goodness and for His divine purpose in your life. Many others are depending on your obedience in this season.
Heavenly Father, thank you for your divine purpose in my life. Thank you that you have prayed for me that my faith will not fail, and today I place my trust in you to bring me through every season of trouble.
I reject bitterness and fear and I believe you, that you will turn every attack of the enemy for good and that many will be saved because of what you are doing in my life. Thank you for a new season of great fruitfulness and productivity. In Jesus’ name!
