Super Simple Sunday

It's Not Always What it Looks Like!
But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Genesis 50:20
Joseph was cast in the pit by his brothers, they were jealous of him.
Joseph was just living his life quietly.
He was very close to God, God even gave him visions.
He was excited to share what God had showed him, but his brothers misunderstood.
The Egyptian traders bought him and took him to Egypt.

God can make Good out of the Worst Things!

From slave to ruler
He was even falsely accused of having an affair with the rulers wife and thrown into prison for 3 years.
Joseph ended up saving his entire nation.
He had the choice spend his days complaining about how unfair life was or make the best of it!

Do We find Ourselves in a pit of Unfairness?

So if we find ourselves in a pit of unfairness.
Sickness, family problems, money problems, abuse, or any other we can think of, we have the same choice.
Just like Joseph, God can take that situation and turn it into a good thing!

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: Philippians 1:6
God never starts something He doesn't finish!
