Does life sometimes puzzle you? Do you wonder if God has any purpose planned as you face hardship, difficulty and disappointment? Joseph experienced 13 years of hardship and God pulls back the curtain and displays His plan. It is truly an amazing event. There are great lessons here for all of us.
Ever had someone insult you, falsely accuse you, mistreat you, be cruel to you, hurt you? Of course we all have. How does one avoid the spiritual cancer of bitterness and resentment? Today’s message focuses on one of the most emotional and amazing accounts in all of Scripture. God is calling every one of us to the freedom of forgiveness.
The overarching principle from the life of Joseph is that God is in control–His providence is active at all times. Our Lord desires for us to rest in His providence whatever the twists and turns and pitfalls of life may be. He is always writing a bigger story. He is graciously at work in our life even when we think He isn’t.
