The enemy may attack, but he will not win. Failure may come, but it is not final. Addiction may cripple, but it will not kill. And life may stink, but the smell is not permanent.
Remember that guy in the Old Testament named Joseph? He was a good guy with some bad brothers. After years of suffering at the hands of his brothers, Joseph said, “You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good” (Genesis 50:20).
Debbie McDaniel, writing for Crosswalk, offers hope. She writes, “God is faithful to his people. He is crazy about you. He will see you through. You will step to the other side of darkness. Many lives will be affected for the kingdom’s sake because of your difficult season of struggle.”
If you are paying the price for the sins of another person, take heart. God has not forgotten you. He will not abandon you. What the enemy meant for evil, God means for good.
Recovery Step: You may be down, but you’re not out. Repeat after me: “God gets the final word.”
