How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!“ Romans 10:15
Eternity is there to be gained or to be lost by each one of us. And if we know Jesus, we know the way, and we need to tell others. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Let’s work as long as it is day, you and me in our own ways. Has the Lord called you to go far away? Then do so. Does He want you to stay? Then be obedient. God can only use us where He calls us. Isn’t it wonderful to work for a King who has never lost a battle!

Even as the angry vengeful thoughts boiled through me, I saw the sin of them. Jesus Christ had died for this man; was I going to ask for more? Lord Jesus, I prayed, forgive me and help me to forgive him… Jesus, I cannot forgive him. Give me your forgiveness… And so I discovered that it is not on our forgiveness any more than on our goodness that the world’s healing hinges, but on His. When He tells us to love our enemies, He gives along with the command, the love itself.

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 50:20
Joseph’s life was marked with disloyalty, injustice, false accusations, uncertainty and tears. Thirteen gruelling years of waiting! If anybody had judged him then, they would have branded him as an utter failure. But God was looking out for his success. In God’s hands, intended evil becomes eventual good.
He was weaving the pain and misery and intertwining it with greatness and pleasure. He is the Master Weaver. He knows what He is doing. Are you asking God, “Why God, why? Why me, Lord?” The Lord knows exactly where you are, what is going on in your life. Wait patiently for Him. He is weaving His great and grand purposes for your life.
