Joseph said, “do not be grieved…with yourselves because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life…God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant in the earth, and to keep you alive by a great deliverance. Now, therefore it was not you who sent me here, but God…” Elsewhere, Joseph tells his brothers, “Do not be afraid, for am I in God’s place? As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.” (Genesis 45:5-8; 49:19-20)
For those who love God and are called, all things work together for good!
Sometimes we need to be reminded of this great truth.
