Re-Engineered Events

"You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good." Genesis 50:20
There is no question that God can trump the enemy. The issue is... I must ALLOW God to trump the enemy! I've discovered that my own thought life can sabotage whatever good God is engineering in my life. Even if the people, situations and perceptions that come against me may have some degree of evil intent, God can take what is "meant for evil" and re-engineer "it for (my) good." Exactly HOW He does that is beyond me... but I choose to gratefully embrace His re-engineering process, even before I experience it or understand it.
I pray daily for active re-engineering of situations and events in my kids and grandkids lives, too. Praising God that our lives have been...
Re-engineered many times over...dmc


  1. Today's devo reminds me of one of our favorite sayings in Celebrate Recovery, "God NEVER wastes a hurt." Whatever struggles I have overcome through Christ, He will use that experience for either my benefit or to help me minister to someone else. I really liked the part, "this is how you foil the works of evil, growing in grace through the very adversity that was meant to harm you." Trusting in Him to "bring good out of every situation I encounter."

  2. That is why I love Romans 8:28!

    "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,who have been called according to his purpose."

    I know that no matter what I am going through, good or bad, God will use it to glorify Him and also to help me grow in Him.

    "Fear no evil, for I can bring good out of every situation you will ever encounter." (134)

    Focusing on God!
