God’s plan for him took him to Egypt…..!


And the patriarchs [Jacob’s sons], boiling with envy

and hatred and anger, sold Joseph into slavery in Egypt;

but God was with him,

And delivered him from all his distressing afflictions and

won him goodwill and favor and wisdom and understanding

in the sight of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, who made him governor

over Egypt and all his house.  Acts 7:9, 10

 

Joseph’s brothers held nothing back. The word is very clear

how they felt about him. They were boiling with envy, hatred,

and anger toward him. They wanted to do him harm!

When they sold him as a slave they thought that was the

end of him!

I think the enemy does something similar. he brings things

in our lives to take us out, to do us harm. he doesn’t want

us fulfilling our destiny.

But he is seriously misinformed. Like Joseph, God is with

us in the desert, in the storm, in Egypt!

Consider this:

God had a plan for Joseph but he had to go to Egypt for it

to come to pass!

I believe we all have an “Egypt”

to go through but that is not the most important thing to

remember. The most important thing to remember is,

God is with you!

 

Because God was with Joseph in Egypt the word says,

 

He delivered him from ALL his distressing afflictions

(which in reality are many). God will deliver us as well.

 

He won him goodwill and favor and wisdom and

understanding in the sight of Pharaoh, King of Egypt!

Wow….!!!

 

Pharaoh made him governor over Egypt and all his house!

 

That is so crazy right! That all happened in Egypt!!

His brothers wanted to take him out but God stepped in

and turned things around. He delivered Joseph from

the evil plans of man.

God protected him. Anything could of happened to him

but it didn’t because God was with him!

Did Joseph understand at first? Off course not. He had

dreams in his heart, dreams he believed were from God!

But even though he was confused and even though he felt

abandoned, even though he was in fear, even though he

was rejected, even though he was misunderstood, even

though his faith in God waned, even though he was locked

up,

God was with him through it all..…!

 

Friends, please let that truth sink in deep. He is

with us. He knows exactly where you are, what you are

facing. He has not abandoned you, He has not cast you

into the darkness, He has not disowned you, He doesn’t

want to harm you….never! He is with you. He loves you

with an everlasting love! Don’t ever forget that.

be encouraged…….God bless you!

Have a great weekend!

  2. I am encouraged by this Rolain. Have been feeling a bit down and wondering what God is doing, but it’s so good to remember the enemy will not have the final say, and God is with me!

  3. Hi Rolain,

    I’m in “Egypt” and I’ve been asking God for how long I shall be in here… It’s tough to be here for real, but I’m holding. God is gracious enough and I know He will see me through… and in the end I’ll be thankful to Him for letting me pass Egypt so I can fulfill my destiny.

    Thank you for the encouragement.

    This is what I exactly needed.

    • Hey Luna….
      Egypt is not an easy place to be for sure.
      Be encouraged that Egypt is not your residential address….! God has a plan for you to move to another place. A better place.
      Like you said, He will see you through….and I agree! I am excited to see where He takes you and for now He is growing you and strengthening you for the next place!
      I am so glad you are encouraged. Let us trust God as He leads us and guide us every step of the way!
      God is with you!
      Rolain
