Last night, we talked about the four Patriarchs that began the nation of Israel. The last one, Joseph, looked back on his life and noted that others had meant evil to come to him, but God always worked it to the good.
Genesis 50:20 reads
“You planned evil against me; God planned it for good to bring about the present result—the survival of many people.”
This verse sets a good foundation for the rest of the Word of God and a good foundation for us to live by: “God is good!”
Everything that God does is good. Everything.
Not everything that happens in the world is good, because not everything is from God. However, every wicked, evil thing and person in this world is under God’s Hand and God still works every evil plan for His own good result.
I don’t know about you, but knowing that brings me peace today.
