Day Twenty-One

And as for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. ~Genesis 50:20

There is hardly a more dramatic story in the Bible than the story of Joseph, nor a more dramatic illustration of how God uses man’s evil intent to bring about great good. He was betrayed by his own siblings, falsely accused, enslaved, forgotten. We can readily associate those very things with the plight of those that are sex trafficked. Let us be encouraged by how God turned the evil directed at Joseph into blessing and preservation for an entire nation.

Prayer focus:

  • For trust in God that everything that happens is part of his plan, whether I can see it or not.
  • For trust in God’s goodness.
