God Intentions

 

From the greatest evil
ever done

Christ nailed upon
the cross

You brought forth
the greatest good

salvation for
the lost.

*********

You establish good from the bad.

“So they sent this message to Joseph: ‘Before your father died, he instructed us to say to you: “Please forgive your brothers for the great wrong they did to you – for their sin in treating you so cruelly.” So we, the servants of the God of your father, beg you to forgive our sin.’ When Joseph received the message, he broke down and wept. Then his brothers came and threw themselves down before Joseph. ‘Look, we are your slaves,’ they said.”

“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 50:16-20

“So Joseph recognized his brothers, but they did not recognize him.”  Genesis 42:8  NKJV

I am always surprised when someone from my past recognizes me.

Thank You, Lord, for always knowing who I am and how to change me.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Lord, make me
unrecognizable
from who
I used to be

as I put away
the old
and You
transform me.

God bless you as others recognize Him in you today!
