February 1 - Romans 8:28, Genesis 50:20

all things work together for good
for those who love God 
Romans 8:28
You plotted evil against me,
but God turned it into good,
in order to preserve the lives of many
Genesis 50:20
To me, Genesis 50:20 is one of the most important verses in the Bible.
Our world is filled with too many evil intentions. And it is filled with too many unfortunate results. Bad things happen to good people. And the questions are always, "Where is God in all this?"
Where is God? The simplest, truest answer I know is that God is always "turn[ing evil] into good." Evil is a human, sinful, demonic invention. Therefore, God must be continually turning darkness into light, sadness into joy, despair into hope, bondage into freedom, and brokeness into grace.
I picture it like snow in the spring.
Where is God? Not in the frozen blanket of ice, but in the flowers that are poking through. Sin and evil assualt this world. God is in the signs of life that keep poking through anyway. God is "work[ing] ... all things ... together for good for those who love [Him]."
In Christ's Love,
a guy who's ready
for the first traces
of Spring's flowers
