"But as for you, ye thought evil against me;
but God meant it unto good,..."
Genesis 50:20

Genesis 50:20 comes close to being my favorite passage of Scripture.

But it's not! My favorite is Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him."

A great truth written large in both the Old and New Testaments is that God means everything for our good.

It just doesn't get any better than that!

But how can it be that all things work together for our good?

Taken separately "stuff"  that happens can be bad.

Taken together it can be good.

Whatever the circumstances yesterday or today they can be good as long as our hearts are right with God and others.

Maybe you can't say it right now, but in time you can say like Joseph, "But God meant it unto good."

Sometimes it can be hard to believe , but I believe it is true . In the end all of the bad stuff will be transformed to our good or maybe better said we will be able to clearly see how it all fits together for our good .
