IF YOU LEARN TO TRUST THE LORD– really trust Him– with your whole being. Then nothing can separate you from His Peace. Everything you endure can be put to good use by allowing it to train you in trusting the Lord. This is how you foil the works of evil, growing in grace to the very adversity that was meant to harm you. Joseph was a prime example of this divine reversal, declaring to his brothers:”You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good.”
Do not fear what this day, or any day, may bring your way. Concentrate on trusting God and on doing what needs to be done. Relax in the Lord’s sovereignty, remembering that He go before you, as well as with you, into each day. Fear no evil, for God can bring good out of every situation you will ever encounter.
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. (Genesis 50:20) NASB
Even Though I Walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)
