Is it not interesting that God can use evil to promote you. Sometimes, your enemies plan evil for you but God can use it as a tool to bless you. Consider the case of Joseph who was sold into slavery but it rather catapulted him to greatness. Consider Moses who was supposed to be killed as a baby but God used it to open a door to be Pharaoh’s son. He was protected, educated and raised by his assassins and he later delivered Israel from slavery.
2 Kings 25:27
“And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, that Evilmerodach king of Babylon in the year that he began to reign did lift up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah out of prison;”
Jehoiachin was taken into captivity by Nebuchadnezzar king of the Babylonians. He was later succeeded as King by Evilmerodach. His name alone can send shivers down your spine. After all his “evil” ironically, it was he who rather released Jehoiachin from prison and blessed him.
Maybe some evil is troubling you; it could be “Evilbusiness”, “Evilmarriage”or “Evilpeople”, pray to the Lord for deliverance and he will turn evil around for your good.
