“Please forgive, I beg you, the transgression of your brothers and their sin, for they did you wrong.”’ And now, please forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father.” And Joseph wept when they spoke to him. …

 

“As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. Genesis 50:17-20

Dreamed of the future

Thrown into a pit

Sold in slavery

Accused of rape

Forgotten in prison

Remembered in the palace

Advised because of the dream

Elevated to authority

Destined for preservation

Forgave in love

Healing in family

Foreordained by God.

When your life seems out of control, think of Joseph and thank God that He is in control. Like Joseph, through your trials, you may preserve the life of one or the lives of many. Only God knows now.

My prayer for you

Father, thank You for Your plans for our lives. Thank You for using our troubles to work good for others. Thank You that in our weaknesses, Your power is manifested. Give us the grace to forgive others as You have forgiven us. We love You Lord!
