You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
Romans 8:28 – And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
The enemy truly intends to hurt us and spiritual warfare is a reality we must not ignore. Yes, he does come to steal, kill and destroy. He steals your joy, kills your hope and in the end destroys you, but only if you let him. You see whatever the enemy’s intentions, God can turn them into good if you turn to Him. That means turning away from your own pride, self centeredness, and egocentric ways so that you can focus on the spiritual.
The enemy will stir up trouble even amongst the most “spiritual” leaders within the church in an effort to create hurts that create division and steal God’s joy from the hearts of those who have been called to serve Him. Before they realize it, they are more focused on themselves, what they are going through, how they have been mistreated, how they can retaliate because they don’t have to put up with this, how they can’t believe someone who is a Christian would behave this way, and so forth. That is exactly what the enemy wants, division because he knows how to divide and conquer better than most.
Are you going to fall for it or are you going to turn to the word of God. He provides so many examples of God’s children being persecuted by the evil one and the victory they received when they turned to Him for the answers. They called upon His name and He did not leave them or forsake them. He will not leave you or forsake you in the midst of your trial if you focus on Him instead of the lie. The most difficult thing to do is to be humble when you believe you’ve been wronged, but it is in that spirit of humility that you will find peace and deliverance from the wrong. You will become stronger and more determined, focusing on doing what Christ has called you to do. God will begin to do the work, to turn that which was meant for evil into unbelievable blessings. That is what he did for Joseph when he took him from the pit to the throne! Let God turn what is meant for evil into His blessings for your life. Just a little advice to go!
