Your Circumstances and God
Even when you don’t feel in control of your circumstances, you can be sure that God is.The story of Joseph is one of the most familiar stories in the Bible. The youngest of twelve brothers, Joseph started out as the favorite son in Israel and ended up a slave in Egypt. On the surface Joseph’s life was one of circumstances behond his control. His father favored him, his brothers hated him, Potiphar promoted him, and Potiphar’s wife lied about him.
In the end, however, God restored Joseph so he could rescue his family while preserving a nation. While it seemed that Joseph wasn’t in control of his destiny, there was no question that God was with him every step of the way, directing his ways, even when the days were dark.
When it seems like circumstances are outside your control and the world is against you, remain faithful to God, especially when the days are dark. God promises to restore you for your own good and His glory.
“As far as I am concerned, God turned into good what you meant for evil.”
