The Sweetest Satisfaction

Genesis 50:19-20, NIV: But Joseph said to them, "Don't
be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended
it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many
It has been said, that when life hands you lemons, you should make
lemonade. Not all of us are quickly comforted by such positive
thinking. However, most of us might agree that we would like to more
readily adopt a positive attitude, look at the bright side, and somehow find the
better good regardless of the bitter bad. This may hardly be possible for
you, but Jesus tells us that "all things are possible with God."
Of that we can be certain. And not only that, but with God, "all things are
worked together for the good, to them that love God, to them that are called
according to His purpose." Let's face it-life is filled with lemons
But there is a sweetness to be found in a deeper joy that come from knowing that
God is still in control. He still has your best interest at heart.
He still loves you today as He did yesterday. And most assuredly
so, He can still work even the most sour of situations around in a way that will
bring out the sweetest satisfaction.
