Joseph and the Providence of God

Laws of family relationship were broken on the road to desperate tragedy when Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers, falsely accused and imprisoned in a dungeon in Egypt. Through all these trials, Joseph recognized the providence of God and remained faithful to God. Joseph in his heart believed that God ordained this for the good of all. We are all tested on how we will deal with the circumstances of life set before us. When God wants to give great responsibility, it sometimes begins with a great trial. God and Christ promise to never leave us or forsake us even in the depths of a dungeon of despair. What Satan would use to seek to destroy you can become what ultimately saves you, if you respond correctly.

    Do we wallow in the pits of self-pity, sink into the dungeon of despair thinking there is no way out of our trials & difficulties or do we trust God & ask, knock & seek God our Redeemer as Joseph, Yahweh Remembers, did? Thanks to our biblical scholar Dr. Ward for this epic & emotional account on Joseph’s life: the first son of Jacob, the supplanter who became Israel, & Rachel, Jacob’s second wife. Hated & betrayed by his brothers, striped of every vestige of what he was & what he dreamed of being, lost his identity, lost the cloths of his back: How about being on our own with no support system asks Dr. Ward. Joseph had nothing, cast into the pit, sold into slavery, falsely accused by his master’s wife, cast into prison for his faithfulness to the law of God, he became a prison guard exalted in due season, then a ruler of the land of Egypt as Pharaoh’s CEO: His brothers bowed down to him, Joseph ruled over them, he forgave them, he restored them & they were finally led out of slavery, out of Egypt, via the leadership of Moses. Do we like Joseph, a hero of faith, believe that all things work together for good to them that love God & are called according to His purpose, Rom 8:28?
