What the Enemy Meant For Evil — Watch How It Now Will Be Turned For Your Good!

Now is the time to shake off the perspective of how much evil has been sent against you, your family, your children, and your nation.

“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

As I was sitting with the Lord yesterday the verse in Genesis 50:20 kept repeating in my mind and spirit. Then I clearly heard these words,

“Every time you see the enemy bring forth an evil plan to harm you— decree My redemption over it and then watch how I will turn that very thing that was meant to bring you harm into something that accomplishes My purposes.”

Wow! This is not an unfamiliar verse to me but yesterday it came alive in a new and revelatory way. Every plan and execution of evil plans that we put into the hands of God will be transformed into something that accomplishes his purposes and is redeemed for a good purpose.

Now is the time to shake off the perspective of how much evil has been sent against you, your family, your children, and your nation. It is time to arise with a renewed faith that is validated by Genesis 50:20. This verse gives you a Biblical and legal right that assured that EVERYTHING sent against you (that touches you or your family— or God’s family) will most definitely become a weapon for good to accomplish salvation, blessing, redemption and bring forth His Kingdom!

Have you been stolen from? Has the enemy sent circumstances against you that were meant for evil? Have evil laws or orders in your nation caused you or your family harm? If so, now is the time to watch those very things transformed into the very thing that God uses for his purposes— to bring life, save lives, redeem, bless, prosper and heal you!

Grab hold of the verse and promise in Genesis 50:20 and declare transformation and redemption over everything that the enemy has sent to harm you. We are in a time where miracles are happening and miraculous breakthroughs are manifesting on earth in such quick succession that we cannot help but say, “Surely the Lord is with us!”

“Then my enemies will see that the LORD is on my side. They will be ashamed that they taunted me, saying, “So where is the LORD— that God of yours?” With my own eyes I will see their downfall; they will be trampled like mud in the streets.” Micah 7:10

“But if you are careful to obey him, following all my instructions, then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and I will oppose those who oppose you.” Exodus 23:22

And finally,

“You will look in vain for those who tried to conquer you. Those who attack you will come to nothing.” Isaiah 41:12

We can look at all that the enemy has meant for evil and rejoice because we can place it in the hands of God and watch the enemy flee as God redeems and uses it to accomplish good! Praise our God and our Redeemer!
