God Always Intends Good

When really bad things happen, we’re often tempted to doubt God’s goodness. 

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. When really bad things happen, we’re often tempted to doubt God’s goodness. Especially, if those bad things are caused by another person. But think about Joseph. His brothers beat him, sold him into slavery, and then a woman spread lies about him which landed Joseph in jail for years! Now it would have been so easy for Joseph to think that those evil people tripped up the Lord, ruining God's best and highest plan for him. But years later, when face-to-face with his brothers, Joseph told them, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Oh Friend, God's intentions for you are always good – and that good is that unbelievers might be won to the Savior’s side as you gracefully respond to your trials just as Joseph did to his.
