Among religious people, there is a tendency to try to correct every “problem”. They toss Bandaids on bullet wounds ; and slather pancake paste on open sores. You may hear things like: “Pray through! ” “Plant a seed!” “Claim your blessing!” Not recognizing that in the life of a Christ–follower___ God is in Everything! Not that God causes everything, but just as Joseph recognized in Genesis 50:20, What the enemy means for evil, God can use for good. IF GOD is the Sovereign of the universe and He has a plan (Jeremiah 29:11) for each of our lives, Why are we trying to “break through” it?
But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.__Genesis 50:20 KJV
I call it “The 50/20 Rule.” It is for me, the difference between happiness and joy. The cure for adversity is a constant awareness of the sovereignty of Our Loving Father, God.
