The Journey with Ron Moore

God is at Work | Genesis 50:20

Genesis 50:20
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

Sometimes it’s harder to accept forgiveness than it is to forgive. After their father died, Joseph’s brothers were sure he would seek revenge for the harm they had done him. But Joseph reminded them (again!) that God used their intentions for His purposes. God never wastes our time.

Did you hear that? God never wastes our time.

  • It may seem like it now as you live between jobs…
  • It may seem like it now as you wait for God to bring the right mate into your life…
  • It may seem like it now as you recover from another round of chemo…
  • It may seem like it now as you live in the consequences of your sin…
  • It may seem like it now as you go through the day with your broken heart…
  • It may seem like it now as you recover from the death of a dream…
  • It may seem like it now as your life has seemingly been placed on hold…

But…the Sovereign, Almighty, All-Powerful God never wastes our time.

So…(and I don’t say this flippantly)…hang in there! God is using every minute to mold you into the person He needs you to be for the next leg of the journey. God is at work...He loves you with an unconditional love…He has given you an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade…He has purchased you with the precious blood of his Son. He has eternally invested in you! Ask Him what He wants you to learn and how He wants you to respond to your present assignment. He is not wasting your time.

Father, for those who feel like they are stuck and their life is on hold…for those reeling from a difficult relationship or circumstance…please encourage them today with some tangible evidence that You are not wasting their time. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
