Once two men were on a train discussing the life of Messiah. Both were unbelievers. One of them suggested that the other should write a book to disprove the Gospel. The man who made the suggestion was Colonel Ingersoll, a famous atheist. The man who wrote the book was Lew Wallace, a general in the Civil War. Wallace’s intent was on tearing down Jesus. But as he set out to write his book, he became more and more convinced that Jesus was true. Instead of attacking Messiah, the book ended up lifting him up.
The book was called “Ben Hur.” And through the book and later the movies, millions would see Jesus as the Son of God. It just goes to show you, if God can take an attack against Jesus and turn it into “Ben Hur,” how much more he will work all things in your life for good. So be blessed and give thanks even for the problems and even for those things the enemy meant for evil. For in the end, they will all be used for your good and His glory, just like Ben Hur.
Today’s Mission – Today, give thanks to the Lord that He will turn for your good those things the enemy meant for evil.
