Genesis 45:5; "But don't be upset, and don't be angry with yourselves for selling me to this place. It was God who sent me here ahead of you to preserve your lives."(NLT)
Sometimes, the experiences we go through can look random or unrelated, especially at the time when we are going through them. It is only when time passes, and we look through the mirror of history that we realize, that God’s divine hand was at work within the good, bad and ugly.
Therefore, it is important that we don't see things through the lens of convenience and blessing. When Joseph was sold into slavery, it was a painful thing, but he came to realize that there was a higher divine purpose beyond him. He went to Egypt to become governor so he could save God’s people from famine.
What are you going through? Trust in God and His Word, because over time, you will come to understand that there was a higher purpose!
Heavenly Father, I thank you for your purpose in my life. I have a higher purpose to accomplish! I refuse to worry, I refuse to fear. God has planned out my life for glory, for He is my potter and I am the clay. I give Him all glory in Jesus name! Amen!
