When harm is done to us, we don’t often think that we will prevail, or that the wrong done to us is actually our blessing.
God catches our tears and puts them in a bottle. And when we cry out to him, he turns those that have wronged us away from us. Not only that, but those things that are meant to do us wrong, God turns them for our good, and into beauty.
Therefore, give thanks and praise to our Father!
Psalm 56:8-9 (KJV) – thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.
Genesis 50:20 (KJV) – 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.
Isaiah 61:3 (KJV) – to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
Psalm 92:1 (KJV) – it is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High.
