I read this devotional a couple of days ago and wanted to share it. With so many opportunities to get angry in this crazy world, especially with the injustices we sometimes see, I thought it was a good reminder that prayer should be our first defense. It is from the Oct/Nov 2021 issue of 60 days of Prayer by Guidepost.
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.”
How do you respond when faced with injustice? Turn to God and pray. Turn away from vengeance and instead look to Him to help you see the situation as an opportunity for growth and transformation. Instead of blowing up in anger, calmly ask God for strength to be your best in this challenging situation.
Lord, I trust that my future is in Your loving care.
