Even in the worst thing you are going through, God ordains every step.
What I’m facing is not always for me, sometimes it’s for you. What the enemy is throwing at you to knock you down, it’s going to bounce back and be a blessing in somebody’s life. In the Bible, Paul gets bit by a serpent. What good is that going to do? Well, God turned it out for good, the glory of the Lord was shone and revival broke out among the people Paul was with.
God can take what you are going through and touch a multitude of people with it.
Even in the Bible, Joseph went through a lot of hard things. But he told his brethren that what they meant for evil, God turned it around for good to save many people. Whatever you are facing, God is going to save many people through it.

God does not create evil.
Our God is fully holy and righteous. He is full of mercy, grace, and love. Evil is a product of the enemy. But God will take what the enemy means for evil and He will slip His hand into it. When God does that, what you are facing becomes a tool to mold and make you. If the Lord didn’t allow what you’ve been through to take you out, He’s telling you He has a plan for you.
The enemy cannot curse what God has blessed.
I don’t know what you’re going through. I don’t know your storm. But I’m pretty sure you’re coming through. The Lord God Almighty is present in your storm. Just stand, He will make a way. Just hold on, He’ll bring you out. You are not under a curse, you are under a blessing.
When they bring a barrel of oil out of the ground, they don’t just make gasoline out of it. They make over 555 products from it. They don’t waste one drop. God is the same way with us. He’s not just going to use our shouting or our singing, but He is going to use every storm we’ve been through and every trial we’ve faced. All the pain we’ve faced and all the sleepless nights we’ve had, God won’t waste them. What satan thought he would break you with, God is going to use it as a tool to reach someone else.
“Samson, when you’re tired, you better be careful where you lay your head.”
There is an enemy who will try to take your anointing. When the floods of life are overwhelming you, get to Jesus. When you can’t sleep, when you can’t rest, get yourself to the Rock.
Daniel was thrown into a den.
He stayed faithful to God though he would be thrown into the lion’s den. God brought him out of it, but what good came of that other than saving Daniel’s life? Well, after King Darius saw Daniel alive and well, he made sure that his kingdom knew that Daniel had a God and that God was the living God.
Whatever you are going through, whatever storm you are facing, remember this:
Romans 8:28 — “And we know that all things work together for the good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
