The enemy meant it for bad, BUT! God will make it for good.
God used trials and tribulation to teach His people, to grow their faith, and to demonstrate His wonderful working power in their midst.
So, how do we know if we’re in the Will of God when sorrow is present? Fruit. The workings of God always produces fruit. Where there’s fruit, the Hand of God ordained it.
The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it…
Godly sorrow produces repentance. Distress (sorrow) produced by the enemy, results in anguish.
God is good ALL the time.
