The Greater Good!

Posted on June 9, 2014 at 12:25 AM
Good Monday morning! Today's power scripture comes from Genesis 50:20 (NIV) |”You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”
Why me? Why now? Why like this?  We have all had these very questions and many more pre-pity party thoughts course through our consciousness when we are in uncomfortable situations. “Why am I the one who has to always experience the hard life?  Can’t anything ever come easily for me?  Just when I am about to make things happen, then this comes along.  Why now?  Why me?  Why? Why? Why?”  The answer is easy but the reality of the answer is as difficult as nuclear physics.  The answer is: because God ordained it to be so.  Now to wrap one’s head around that concept is where the tedious journey of trusting God comes into play.  To tell someone that their life is as it is because God willed it; takes a whole lot of faith.  But here is the process in a nutshell:
God is omniscient (all knowing)
God is omnipresent (everywhere at the same time)
God is omnipotent (all powerful)
God is sovereign – He will do what he wants to, how he wants to; with whom it wants to; where he wants to
God knows all about you, the hairs on your head, the breaths in your body, the tears you have shed and the desires of your heart
God has a plan for you; one of peace and not of evil
God orders your steps.
But most of all, God is pure love.
So lets’ review the facts.  If you take into consideration that God knows everything; he is everywhere; he is the ultimate power source and crown that with the fact that everything he does is to accomplish his holy and righteous will, then it only makes sense that in his loving wisdom even the ‘crazy’ stuff we endure is all a part of this plan.  If he gave it to you, then he knows you can go through it and come out on the other side not smelling like smoke.  He entrusted you to shoulder the hard stuff because you have what it takes to prove that you serve a loving God.  There are others around you who don’t have the ability to ‘save’ themselves or to better their situations without your influence, guidance or just your example.
     When evil is plotted against you, God is not asleep letting someone take advantage of his children.  No, to the contrary -  God is fully aware and already assigning angels, intermediaries, supporters and cheerleaders to embrace you.  So no matter what your boss, non-support paying ex-spouse; argumentative neighbor or jealous friend may have lined up for you…don’t get angry and all bent out of shape.  Simply keep serving; keep praising; keep bringing your “A” game and watch God turn it all around not just to rectify you…but to save many and to glorify himself.
Every day is a good day; it is up to us to make it a power-packed GREAT day!  Be blessed!  Dr. JoAnn

Congratulations to my sister Linda Bridges and all of the WOD and MOD members who made yesterday’s annual Empowerment Brunch a huge success.
