One example of God using harmful plans for His will is the life of Joseph. Joseph's brothers meant harm for Joseph, who they saw as their father's favorite. God used the plans of Joseph's brother for good, eventually saving the lives of Joseph's family during a famine. In our lives, we need to respond like Joseph. We should trust that God will be active in protecting us and using the circumstances in our lives for His will. We also need to be gracious and show God's love when dealing with those that tried to hurt us!
Allow God to use a bad situation for His good!
Thank You for loving me and for protecting me, even when others are trying to cause harm. Please help me to trust that You will use whatever I am facing for Your good and glory. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
