God sent me ahead of you to save many lives I Genesis 45 : 4 - 8 a
Posted by Pastor Anish K. S (ICPF Manipal)
When Joseph was disclosing himself before his brothers at Egypt he said " I am Joseph, our
brother, whom you sold into slavery in Egypt. But don't be upset, and don't be angry with yourselves for selling me to this place. It was God who sent me here ahead of you to preserve your lives."
Though Joseph had to go through the valleys of the shadows of death in his life because of these brothers yet he forget and forgive them. Moreover, he was sure of God's purpose to preserve a generation through his life so in all life situations he remained faithful to God without any complaint or compromise.
The life of Joseph teaches us that God is sovereign, he is trustworthy, nothing can stop his plan for those who remain faithful to him. So, understand that you are sent by God and remain faithful to him, serve him without complaint or compromise. The God who called
you faithful and he will fulfill all his promises in due time.
