The Life of Joesph is an amazing story of God's grace! No story is the Bible is a better example of God keeping His promise that 'all things work together for good to them that love God.' This is God's promise that out of things that are not good in themselves He will bring about that which is good, not only for the ministers of God's grace but also for those to whom they minister.
Joesph was sold into slavery and imprisoned, but God used these adversities as stepping stones into his governorship. This enabled Joesph to minister life-saving food to himself and many others during a great famine. Joesph's spiritual development in these adversities was necessary for God to use him as a channel of material and spiritual blessings. May our knowledge of Joesph's spiritual victories over temptations help us to overcome our own trals and temptations!
