Suffering: What good could ever come from this trouble!
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.
Genesis 50:20 KJV
I’ll just use myself as an example for this one, if that’s okay with you guys…
Never in a million years would I think God could use a story such as mine.
Molested as a child and teen.
Addicted to porn, sex and masturbation by the age of sixteen.
Sex and alcohol went hand in hand for decades.
When you are living in a life of sin you really don’t care about what the outcome may be or who it affects.
But once God gets a hold of your heart and repent you begin to fill remorse and want to make ammends to those you hurt along the way.
You will also want to help others who are dealing with the same things you dealt with.
I actually did call a few of the women I had sex with and apologized for being so selfish. And I asked for their forgiveness.
God also gave me a calling to help men and women show struggle with porn, masturbation and sexual issues.
God did take the bad things in my life and made them good. But the good, is technically not my good but His.
God, through my struggles and subsequent freedom, has set people free from the chains of sexual addiction of several kinds.
Your current troubles that the enemy is using to destroy you…trust me…God will use for His kingdom. Stay strong!
