In the Bible, we read about a person called Joseph who had dreams and promises from God that he would be on the top. God’s promise “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9) is an evergreen promise to His children. But it makes one to wonder why it did not work out for Joseph when his brothers threw him in to the pit and consequently sold him as a slave!
Where was God when Joseph begged his brothers? Where was God when he was sold as a slave? Where was God when he was falsely accused and put in prison by a king? Where was God when people forgot him? Beloved, engrave this in your heart: “God was right there with Joseph in all of these” (Genesis 39:21). Beloved, sometimes people who hate you can push you into your destiny! As a child of God, be assured of God’s caring and carrying hands constantly present with you. God is faithful to His word. One day, God made Joseph to present a solution for the forthcoming famine in Egypt even before the crisis begun. This made him the Prime Minister of Egypt, the place where he was imprisoned once!
