Joseph said to his brothers, “You intended to harm me but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives” (Genesis 50:20).
Joseph confessed that God (not his offenders) is Lord of his circumstances. He confessed that God is in control of his life. His brothers were clearly responsible for their deeds (and he clearly acknowledged this truth). But he recognized that God was greater than their actions.
Life between two intentions: You intended…. God intended….
Through dark and painful nights, Joseph learned to trust the goodness of God in the painful twists of a life that seemed to be controlled by the evil intentions of others.
Today, I pray you heal from things that no one apologized for. Release them. Forgive them. Don’t live in the expectation of those who hurt you to heal you. God will use it all for your good and His glory.
