Reflection from Nina Laird-Fusilli
From the pit to the palace!
Joseph of the Bible suffered one adversity after another. In reading about his life, one would be amazed that he never threw in the towel.
His jealous brothers threw him in a pit and had him sold into slavery.
After being sold, he rose up in 'Potiphar’s house, until his wife tried to make advances toward Joseph. When Joseph refused, Potiphar’s wife lied and said Joseph tried to attack her. Joseph was thrown into prison.
He stayed there for a couple of years until the day came when He was called by Pharaoh to interpret his disturbing dreams. Joseph found favor with the King. But he struggled from the age of 17 until he was 30 to see breakthrough in his life. One key element was resounding throughout Joseph’s walk. He never gave up.
It may seem like things will never go your way, but God will never disappoint, or give up on you.
Thess. 5:24 Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
