“You meant to hurt me, but God turned your evil into good…” (Gen. 50:20, NCV)
Does it sometimes seem like the attacks of the enemy are nonstop? Not a one of them takes our God by surprise. He saw every one of them before the world even began, and He planned ahead for each. This is why no weapon formed against you could possibly prosper.
Have you ever played chess with a computer? A PC is a daunting opponent to take on because of how intricately and far ahead it can calculate strategy. No matter how you maneuver your pieces, the computer has pre-planned a veritable plethora of ways to defeat any potential move you might make.
Our fiercely loyal Advocate is infinitely more savvy than the most brilliant computer. There’s absolutely no comparison; there’s simply no way the devil can win. No matter what move the adversary might try against you, Jesus has worked out for you the perfect path to stunning victory. What comfort you can draw from understanding that the Unbeatable Heavenly Strategist is in charge of all your battles! You win. Every time!
“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out!
For from him and through him and to him are all things.
To him be the glory forever! Amen.”
(Rom. 11:33, 36; NIV)
Do you have an experience you can recount of God turning something the devil brought against you, into something amazingly good? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
