Scripture Reading: Gen 50:20
But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
Reflection: Joseph must have felt very disappointed when his brothers ganged up against him and sold him into slavery. How was his dream of seeing his family bow down to him ever going to take place? The obvious place for this to happen would be his homeland but now that door had been shut. Years later in life, in the land of Egypt where he served as a slave, Joseph rose to prominence by divine arrangement. His position now as the Prime Minister demanded that people bow before him any time they approach him. The search for food by his brothers in the time of famine eventually brought them to Egypt. As they bowed before him, the scene was set for Joseph to remember that the missed opportunity to live and grow in his homeland due to the evil treatment meted out to him by his brothers was a blessing in disguise. How could he have become the prime minister in Egypt if his brothers had not sold him as a slave? A lost opportunity in life can be the roadway to your divine appointed blessings!
Confession: I will not cry over a lost opportunity in my life. It can be the roadway to my divine appointed blessings. All things shall work together for my good in Jesus name.
