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

These are the words spoken by Joseph to his brothers, years after they threw him in a well and left him for dead, then decided it would be better to sell him into slavery. God took Joseph on quite a journey; from slavery to the palace to prison, and back to the palace, where he landed a position as second in command to Pharaoh and in charge of the whole land of Egypt. Certainly, Joseph’s brothers intended to harm him, but the sovereign 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 wondering how in the world you will be able to pay the bills…

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 do your best to get 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 hang in there! God is using every minute (every nano-second) 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 eternity invested in you! Ask him what he wants you to learn and how he wants you to respond to today’s 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.

So many people today are living with less than God’s best because they’ve allowed fear to creep in and take root in their lives. Fear is the greatest weapon the enemy uses to try to hold us back. Fear is not from God. Scripture tells us that fear brings torment. It’s designed to paralyze us and keep us from God’s blessings.

The good news is that God is greater than fear. His power in you is greater than any power that comes against you. But, in order to walk in His power, you have to close the door on the enemy. See, the enemy can’t have access to your life unless you open a door and give him access. That’s why we have to be careful about what we watch, what we listen to, what we read, and what we say. When we open ourselves to fear, we give the enemy opportunity.

If you’ve allowed fear to steal from you in any area of life, today you can be free — you can be finished with fear. Conquering the enemy starts by making the choice to close the door on fear by receiving God’s love and meditating on His promises. Receive His truth and speak His truth. Let Him set you free and lead you into victory as you close the door on fear.

Love is the way you feel your heart glowing whenever he walks in, and love is when he has only one chocolate cookie left and he gives it to you because he knows it’ll make you happy. Love is whenever he looks at you the light shines in his eyes and you cant help but feel like the happiest person ever. Love is equality and respect, when even though your the woman he understands your strengths and respects that you cant always be strong. Most importantly love is knowing you have each others back. Remembering that in the beginning you were best friends, always bearing through together.
