"Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life." Genesis 45:5
IN JESUS TODAY!
Talk about having a purpose! What is my purpose in life, you ask? Well, I am certain that Joseph did not expect to be sold in slavery for simply telling his brothers about a dream that he had, and I am sure that he never expected that God would do such a mighty work through his experiences, but we must remember that God's ways are not man's ways and man's ways are not God's, and it could be that what you are going through is just the beginning of a mighty work from God. God always knows the plans that he has for you, and those plans are not there to harm you, but they are meant to prosper you even if it includes your trials, sufferings, and persecutions. God's desired result for Joseph was that he would go before his family and be used to save many lives from death by starvation. God may have a similar desire in your life, you may be the one that is chosen to save others from calamity or perilous times. God's plans are perfect, they will always bring about life, and are always working together for our good. We might have to go through some things before we can see his plan clearly, but when we trust in God and press through we will see his masterpiece.
God is always with us even though at times it may seem that he has forsaken us, he is there. He will prosper us and we will see his plans unfold when we continue to trust him. God's ways are not man's ways and his ways are a certain victory for us!
GOD IS WITH US!
