If you haven’t read the remarkable story of Joseph, the son of Jacob, you should take some time to read it. Genesis 37-50
Joseph didn’t have the perfect life but all that happened to him, the good along with the bad, was to fulfill God’s purpose according to His will. And the way that Joseph accepted it is a good lesson for us all.
Joseph speaking to his brothers:
Now do not be grieved or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life.
Genesis 45:5 NASB
God “sent” to preserve life. God desires to preserve life.
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 50:20 NASB
who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
1 Timothy 2:4 NASB
Are you ready to let God be in control?
🌹You have granted me life and lovingkindness; And Your care has preserved my spirit.
Job 10:12 NASB
