Favor

“Then Joseph said to his brothers, “Come close to me.” When they had done so, he said, “I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you (Genesis 45:4-5).”

He was his father’s favorite, a dreamer, the 11th of twelve sons, thrown in a ditch (out of jealousy), sold into slavery (devalued), imprisoned (based on false allegations), interpreter of dreams (a gift from God), leader over the land of Egypt second only to Pharaoh. Joseph’s life was filled with ups and downs but it was all a part of God’s plan.

If you truly believe in God’s plan you can trust that no one, no situation, and no scheme will thwart His plan. See God’s blessings in all things.

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the LORD.” Isaiah 54:17
