You can read the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14:29. The talent-gifts the Lord has given each one of us are for investment in His Kingdom. Two servants in Jesus’ parable were commended because of their investments.
The servant who hid his talent was called wicked and lazy. The talent that he had was taken from him. Verse 28 says, “Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.”
Job 42:2 says, “I know that You can do everything, and that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.” Ephesians 1:11 says, “…being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will.”
The things that have happened in our past, are part of His purpose. In that purpose, like with Joseph, the Lord will use our adversities as His training tools to mold us and shape us to fulfill His purpose for our lives.
The enemy of our soul wants to use every thing that we might consider negative as his tool to defeat God’s purpose in our lives. 2 Corinthians stated an absolute truth that we can stand in.
It says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” Our past is passed. We cannot go back and change one thought, nor one action that we took or that others took. Solid, irrefutable, and unchangeable truth that we need to acknowledge.
