God Turns Evil Into Good

…the Lord your God…turned the curse into a blessing for you, because the Lord your God loves you. (Deuteronomy 23:5)

Have you realized that our Father in heaven is a God that turns evil into good?

All throughout the Bible, our Lord turns sinners into the redeemed, sickness into health, weakness into strength, mourning into dancing, sorrow into joy!

No matter how dire a situation may seem, He always manages to turn it around.

If you’re caught in a storm, He calms it and brings you safely to shore.

If you’re surrounded by enemies, He protects you and gives you peace all around.

If you’re hungry, He feeds you with baskets full of leftovers.

When the prodigal son was at his lowest point in life, the father showers him with his love and clothes him with his inheritance.

When the Israelites were caught in between the red sea and a raging army, the Lord opened up the sea and used it to protect His people.

When Joseph was cast into prison, God used it to raise him up to the highest office.

Is there any evil in your life today? Rejoice! For God can turn it into good.

Perhaps there’s a secret sin you’ve been struggling with. Or maybe you have money, health, or relationship problems.

No matter what’s troubling, God can turn it around.

So praise God when you see evil. Give thanks, not for the evil you currently see, but for the victorious turnaround through God’s hand.

Be Greatly Blessed!

Action Steps:

Rejoice whenever you see a problem today. Give glory to God for turning evil into good.

In John 9:2, Jesus’ disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

To which Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but this happened so that the works of God would be displayed in him. While it is daytime, we must do the works of Him who sent Me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

And Jesus went on to heal him and recover his sight.

Some people read this to mean that God created this man blind so that He can later heal the man and be glorified for it.

That can’t be further from the truth!

Can you imagine a Father who blinds his own child, just so that he can later take credit for healing the child?

We’d put such a person in prison!

The truth is, there’s blindness (or sickness, lameness, death, etc.) in this world because it has fallen to sin.

The man’s blindness may not have been directly caused by his or his parents’ sin, but it is through sin, that death and sickness came into the world. (There was no blindness, disease, or death before the fall.)

But more importantly, Jesus did not bother with pointing fingers or finding fault.

Instead of seeing a blind man in front of Him, He saw a perfectly healthy man, made whole through His redemptive work, and gave glory to God.

So when you see evil today, look past it and see the good that God creates out of it!

Let’s pray…


Father, thank you for redeeming me.

Thank you for turning my sins into righteousness through the work of Jesus Christ.

I will rejoice today for you are a God who turns mourning into dancing.

You are a God who turns curses into blessings.

You turn weakness into strength.

You turn sickness into health.

You turn poverty into abundance.

You turn strife into rest.

You turn worry into peace.

Most of all, you’ve turned a sinner like me, into your righteous, blessed, and beloved child.

Glory be to you! My Saviour, my Redeemer, my God!

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,
