The Theology of Struggling
"You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish
what is now being done, the saving of many lives." ~ Genesis 50:20
In our final message of "The Struggle is Real" series we'll develop our
"Theology of Struggling." I know it doesn't sound very comforting.
But when we understand that God can, and often will, use the struggles of life to accomplish His will, we can endure. God used the evil intended in Joseph's life to accomplish the saving of millions of lives (Genesis 50:20).
God used the persecution of the church to fulfill the great commission
and spread the church around the world (1 Peter).
And God can use struggles in your life too in remarkable ways
- to INSPECT, CORRECT, DIRECT, PROTECT and ultimately PERFECT your life.
