Genesis 37:3, 50:19-20 NIV 2011

Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons, because he had been born to him in his old age; and he made an ornate robe for him.

But Joseph said to them, “Don’t be afraid…You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”

 

Joseph was his father’s favorite. Genesis 37:5, “Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more.” His brothers sold him as a slave. He was accused of sexual misconduct and thrown into an Egyptian prison. Joseph faced every challenge, looking beyond the circumstances, remaining steadfast in the Lord. What was meant for evil God used for good. He orchestrated Joseph’s final position as assistant to Pharaoh. Joseph then was able to save his people. God watches, waits and weaves a perfect plan for His people.

 

After leaving a position as an associate city planner, my husband walked into another job the following Monday. What could have been a disaster was actually the best thing for his career. We never know from one moment to the next what lies around the corner. Joel 2:25, “I will repay you for the years the locust have eaten…” Like Joseph, I know God has a plan. I’m confident He watches, waits and weaves His perfect plan for me.

 

What perfect plans is He weaving daily?

 

God has a plan,

S
