This morning the Lord led me to a verse, “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God turned it into good in order to bring about this present result, to save the lives of many people.” —Genesis 50:20 It’s funny because, even though I’ve not really been quoting this verse or referring to… Read More 2.9.2021 – “You plotted evil against me, but God turned it into good…”
