God Is Up to Something Good!
Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, Who only does wondrous things! And blessed be His glorious name forever! And let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen. Psalm 72:18-19 NKJV
God is a good God, and does only wondrous things—that which is wonderful, marvelous, and awesome. Even when you incur the bad and evil, God is still a good God. He is always up to something good. So, don’t give up on your dreams and visions, because your dreams and visions haven’t given up on you. Could it be that God is getting you ready for the fulfillment of your vision? While the vision is ready for you, you may not be ready for the vision. When it seems like nothing is happening, don’t quit—just feel the joy because God is up to something good!
The life of Joseph reminds us that God is always up to something good. Joseph was hated by his brothers, thrown into a pit, sold into slavery, and falsely imprison; notwithstanding, God was up to something good (See Genesis 37:3-11). The same way God brought Joseph out and fulfilled his dream, God will surely bring you out, too. No matter your circumstance; no matter what evil and evil people come against you, God is working on your behalf, in the background, to manifest your dream and vision. Others may have meant it for evil, but God intends it for your good (Genesis 37:23; 50:20).
Because God is up to something good, all things work together for your good (Rom. 8:28). “Surely the wrath of man shall praise You; with the remainder of wrath You shall gird Yourself” (Ps. 76:10). No matter what evil befalls you, man can only do to you and against you what God allows—no more, no less! Nothing shall circumvent your God-given dream and vision. In due season, it shall come to pass (Gal. 6:9). So, “in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thess. 5:18).
God doesn’t speed up difficult trying season, but joy makes the time seem so much shorter. And remember, the greater the vision, the more thorough the preparation. Preparation is never lost time because God is up to something good!
