Genesis 50: 20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
these were the words that were spoken by Joseph when he revealed himself to His Brothers who had actually sold him to Egypt. Now God blessed Joseph while he was in Egypt that He had to become a blessing. Now when God blesses you. you are defined as a blessing!!! and you have no choice but to be a blessing to the people around you!
Joseph had been mistreated by His brothers back at Jacob's house who was their father. its amazing that His brothers sold Him to Egypt so that he would feed them in return!! God was on the business of marking out the destiny of Joseph and beloved you may be going through some hard time perhaps people around you do not love or accept you one thing you should know is that God is marking out your destiny....the Bible says in EXODUS that the more the israelites were afflicted the more they grew and multiplied so even amidst affliction there is blessing,abundance, glory and above all Harvest. Joseph chose to forgive His brothers despite of what they had done to Him. Because God was working out everything for His Good. in the same way, when you go through hard times of rejection and affliction always understand that God has accepted you and He is about to prepare a table for you in the midst of your enemies and it is from that table that you are going to feed them from what God has given you. God does not say you will not have trouble. God Has Overcome and the victory is yours as it is written in John 16:33I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world". God hears every cry, he wipes away every tear and above all He loves you. if you see people afflict you, you know God wants to promote , prosper and increase you. Romans 12:20On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." do not fight your battles,because in your own strength, you are weak. Do it God's way. However the reason why Joseph prospered it is because He obeyed God and walked in His will. remember, you operate best in God's will and plan. God Bless you
