Then his brothers came and threw themselves down before Joseph. “Look, we are your slaves!” they said. But Joseph replied, “Don’t be afraid of me. Am I God, that I can punish you? You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.
Joseph was thrown into a pit and left for dead, but God had other plans. It took years and many trials before Joseph finally rose to power in Egypt, but he kept his faith intact, looking forward to the blessing he was sure God had for him. God has blessings for those who persevere and are faithful. Don’t lose your blessing by failing to see that God may have other plans for you on the other side of trials He may have placed there to prepare you to receive them.
