About faith when going through a tough time
Joseph teaches us about faith while going through a tough time
We can read and learn much about faith from the life of Joseph in the Bible. (Genesis chapers 37-50) Joseph was sold by his brothers into slavery, purchased from them by Potiphar, a member of the personal staff of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. The Lord greatly blessed him there, putting him in charge of Potiphar’s household and all his business affairs.
The Bible says Joseph was a very handsome young man. One day, Potiphar’s wife suggested that he come and sleep with her. Because he refused, she had him put in prison.
At this point Joseph could have felt like we all do at times: “Where are you God in all this?” But God hadn’t forgotten him! Thirteen years later… Pharaoh had a dream. He had heard that Joseph had interpreted dreams for other prisoners and that what he said came true, so he sent for Joseph to explain his dream.
When Joseph’s interpretation of his dream pleased Pharoah, he made him the manager of the nation to prepare for seven abundant years and seven years of famine. Joseph’s family came to Egypt during the famine to purchase grain. The Bible says when Joseph met with them he wept greatly and said, “God has sent me here to keep you and your families alive, so that you will become a great nation.”
An encouraging story for anyone wondering in the midst of their pain, “Where are you God?” You can read about Joseph in full in Genesis chapter 37-48.
To what degree can we rely on God to be with us? Is He really someone we can turn to at all in times of crisis as well as times of calm? Where is God when you need him?
