In the midst of our trials and tribulations we do feel alone and even forgotten by God! But we must remember God is working things out for us even when we cannot see or understand. Joseph was faithful to God and still ended up in a difficult place,being in the center of God’s will will not keep the pain and suffering away. But God has the answers we need.
Joseph never gave up on God, and God didn’t give up on him he kept all of his promises, and God will treat us the same if we remain in faith. Through all of the things Joseph went through God had a plan,and he has plans for us..
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.(ESV)
God has not nor will He ever forget us!
Isaiah 15:15-16 Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you. 16 Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me.(ESV )
Genesis 40:23 Yet the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.
Yes the cupbearer forgot Joseph but God did not! It’s amazing how our start can be so bad but because of God’s unconditional love and His grace and mercy our ending is bright like pure gold! Great Is His Faithfulness,hold on God’s timing is everything.
Love in Christ Pat
