Open Heaven 22 Dec 2017 Bible Reading: Genesis 50:15-21

Gen 50:15 And when Joseph’s brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him.

Gen 50:16 And they sent a messenger unto
Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying,

Gen 50:17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, l pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin, for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of
the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.

Gen 50:18 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants.

Gen 50:19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am l in the place of God?

Gen 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me, but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

Gen 50:21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them and spake kindly unto them.

Open Heaven 22 December 2017 (Friday) Daily Devotional Message with Hymn

Not every seemingly negative situation is as bad as it looks or sounds. In fact, for those called according to God’s purpose, who love God and are in His will, every event works to deliver something good to them (Romans 8:28).

This is why we are told that we walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). If you view every incident with your limited understanding, you will be deceived.

God can bring out something good from the evil works of your enemies, and in the end, they will end up being fooled, deceived or misguided.

If you walk with the Holy Spirit and allow Him shed His light on events happening around you, you will see what He is working out for you, and you will react differently to seemingly unpleasant things.

Instead of sorrowing or being aggrieved, you would be rejoicing and celebrating. Why? It is because you have begun to see as the Holy Spirit sees.
“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Philippians 2:13

Beloved, if you are saved and standing in God’s will please know that whatever God allows to come your way is for your good. In the various situations of life you are confronted with, God is working something out for you.

He is always in control. The devil may brag, shake the whole place and get
everyone afraid, but God is the One at the helm of affairs.

He is the One holding the rudder of the
ship. He is fully in control and He never stops working. As the devil is scheming, God tampers with his plans.

By the time his plans materialise, insteadof working against you as originally designed, the devil will see them working for your good and in your favour.

Even in very bad situations, God can still work out something good. Can you imagine anything good ever coming out of Samson’s fall?

After he fell and was arrested, he was shaved, blinded and made an object of mockery by the Philistines (Judges 16:17-30). However, when he repented, God tinkered with his situation, and at the end of it all, the enemies he killed in his pitiable state were more than all those he killed while he had his eyes and freedom.

Open Heaven 22 December 2017 Hymn 4

Through the love of God our Savior,
All will be well;
Free and changeless is His favor;
All, all is well.
Precious is the blood that healed us;
Perfect is the grace that sealed us;
Strong the hand stretched out to shield us; All must be well.

Though we pass through tribulation,
All will be well;
Ours is such a full salvation;
All, all is well.
Happy still in God confiding,
Fruitful, if in Christ abiding,
Holy through the Spirit’s guiding,
All must be well.

We expect a bright tomorrow;
All will be well;
Faith can sing through days of sorrow,
All, all is well.
On our Father’s love relying,
Jesus every need supplying,
Or in living, or in dying,
All must be well.
