From Bad to Good

Our God turned the curse into a blessing.

Nehemiah 13:2
The Bible is all about God turning a bad situation into something wonderful. God turned bondage into exodus and the desert into a land flowing with milk and honey. In death, Jesus conquered death and transformed the pain of the cross into the joy of an empty tomb.
Are my wrongs so wrong that God cannot make them right? Is there a hole deep enough that God can't pull me out of it? Let's never forget that the God of exodus and resurrection is the same God that we believe dwells within us through the Holy Spirit.

In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us.
 2 Corinthians 5:19
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Everlasting God, in your tender love for the human race you sent your Son to take our nature, and to suffer death upon the cross. In your mercy enable us to share in his obedience to your will and in the glorious victory of his resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
