For Good

7:28 AM

His brothers then came and threw themselves down before him. "We are your slaves," they said.

But Joseph said to them, "Don't be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives…” Genesis 50:18-20 NIV

This is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. It reminds me that even when it seems that everyone and everything is against you, God is still in control. It reminds me that even when I feel everything is going wrong, God is working out for my good.

  1. I love Joseph's story :) He must have had a lot of grace and compassion to deal so kindly with his brothers, who betrayed and hurt him. But like Joseph said, God often turns trials in our lives into good things!
