Turning Pain into Gain | Facing Your Blitz Weekly Video Devotional
Is there something unfair and painful in your past? Someone you’re angry at? This story can help you reframe your outlook and improve your future.
But Joseph replied, “Don’t be afraid of me. Am I God, that I can punish you? You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.” Genesis 50:19-20 (NLT)
Life includes terrible things that have happened to us…even brutal things that people have done to us. Not many of us have it worse than Joseph, though. He modeled a powerful principle that can help us:
Never treat people like the enemy. Never view God as the one who gave you a raw deal.
Remember that bad originates with Satan. God can still turn things for good when we avoid vengeance and trust God’s bigger purposes.
Ask yourself: Who am I still blaming? Who am I mad at?
Let it go. Forgive them.
Set yourself free to fulfill your positive destiny?
Ask God to show you the good you can create despite, or even because of, the past.
