Have you ever wondered why God is allowing you to go through something? Life has become overwhelming and you don’t see a solution ahead? You trust God’s promises, but you are just left…waiting. Joseph was in a similar boat. Sold as a slave by his brothers as a teenager, he found himself wrongly accused and imprisoned. In the midst of his waiting, God was working. After 13 years, God elevated Joseph to second in command in Egypt, saving the future Israelite nation from famine. We see in Genesis 50:20 (which is also our memory verse) that: You (Joseph’s brothers) intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
God was working in the background the whole time. In this series we will examine the life of Joseph and take comfort that God is working in the midst of our waiting.
