In Touch Daily Devotions 18th June 2022 MESSAGE
The Bible is relevant for every situation. Although the details of our circumstances differ from what we read about in Scripture, the principles still apply. As we saw yesterday, for example, Joseph’s story teaches lessons to practice in our own life.
Something that stands out in Genesis 37-50 is how the Lord orchestrated events to achieve His purpose. Even though Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery, God is the one who sent him to Egypt for the benefit of the Israelites (Ps. 105:17). The years of adversity positioned Joseph to become the leader who would rescue God’s people from famine.In Touch Daily Devotions 18th June 2022
Verse 19 goes on to tell us that “the word of the Lord tested him” (ESV). When Joseph was a young man, God gave him two dreams about his future exaltation (Gen. 37:5-11), yet he would experience 13 years of humiliation and hardship before seeing their fulfillment. The Lord was faithful, however, and at just the right time, Joseph was released to assume the role God had planned for him.
Our heavenly Father is arranging the events of your life too, and in the process, you also are being tested by His Word. Your difficulties in no way indicate that the Lord is absent. Instead, He oversees the events of your life and works them to fulfill His long-term purposes for you.
Bible in One Year: Psalm 39-43
Thought Of The Day: God orchestrates the events of our lives, even the difficult ones, for His glory and our good.
