|You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.|
|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.|
This Scripture encapsulates the entire story of Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, taking false charges of rape and enduring years in a dungeon, Joseph had every right to want revenge on his brothers. Instead, he sees that God used his circumstances to stage the greatest hunger relief program of the ancient world.
There are many things that we are suffering in now that, when we look back, we will see the sovereign hand of God guiding us.
