You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Genesis 50:20

Have you ever found yourself trapped in the relentless grip of despair, convinced that failure is your only fate? Too often, we view life’s challenges through a lens tainted by our own limitations. But, what if I told you there’s a transformative perspective that ignites hope and propels us toward victory?  I invite you to read this story in Genesis 37: 22-27 & 50:20.

In a world saturated with doubt and defeat, the perspective of “But God” urges us to see beyond our circumstances and embrace the vision of the divine. Don your Kingdom glasses and witness life through God’s eyes. It’s a perspective that declares, “It’s not over until God says it’s over!”

Imagine yourself amidst a heated game, the clock ticking down and the outcome uncertain. Would you walk away before the final whistle blows? No! You’d stay the course, for victory awaits those who persevere. Don’t exit the arena prematurely, for the verdict of your situation is not yet sealed.

Drawing from the biblical narrative above of Joseph, we encounter a story of resilience amidst adversity. Sold into slavery by his own kin, falsely accused, and forgotten in prison, Joseph’s journey epitomises the transformative power of “But God.” What his adversaries meant for evil, God orchestrated for good, ultimately positioning Joseph as a saviour of nations.

Likewise, in the labyrinth of our trials, the enemy seeks to sow seeds of despair and doubt. Yet, in the face of adversity, “But God” emerges as our beacon of hope. Every setback becomes a setup for divine intervention. Though the devil orchestrates chaos, God crafts triumph from tribulation. Consider Joseph’s unwavering resolve amid betrayal and injustice. Despite the storms that raged against him, he clung to the unwavering truth: “I may be down now, but God…” It’s a mindset we must adopt—an unyielding faith that defies despair and embraces divine sovereignty.

In our darkest moments, when the world echoes defeat, “But God” resounds with the promise of victory. He navigates the peaks and valleys of our journey, orchestrating symphonies of triumph in the midnight hour. “But God” is not just a phrase; it’s a declaration of courage, confidence, and conquest. As we navigate life’s maze, let us relinquish our finite understanding and yield to God’s unfathomable wisdom. His ways transcend our comprehension, leading us on paths of righteousness and restoration. When we surrender to His will, doors once bolted shut swing open, and chains of bondage shatter in His presence.

In conclusion, let us heed the call to worship and prayer. Let us seek restoration for those ensnared by life’s trials and salvation for those shackled by sin. Together, let us embrace the transformative power of “But God,” for all things are possible in His hands.

As we embark on this journey of faith, may the anthem of our hearts echo: “Sija Ona Kama wewe” by Patrick Kubuya—a testament to God’s unwavering faithfulness and unyielding grace. Are you ready to embrace the power of “But God“? The invitation awaits—step into the realm of divine possibility and embark on a journey where defeat is eclipsed by victory, and despair surrenders to hope.
