If you’ve read the Old Testament stories, you know no one’s journey followed an easy path. They all messed up. A lot. And God used their circumstances to prepare them.
Several, in fact. But he had a lot to learn before he could save his people.
So The Lord took him on a long, painful journey that would transform him into the man he was created to be. And all along the way, Joseph was growing and learning.
Joseph trusted The Lord. He knew his gifts — interpreting dreams, for example — were God’s to use as He wanted. Despite all he endured, he was confident in Who God is.
