|1||Patience in suffering!||Gen 41:46||Morant61||143180|
As I have been doing my One Year Bible Reading plan, I was struck by this verse.
Gen. 37:2 states that prior to his being sold into slavery that Joseph was 17 years old. The text doesn't say exactly how much time passed before he was sold into slavery, but it doesn't appear to have been very long.
That means that Joseph spent about 13 years either in slavery or in prison before God elevated him to second in command of Egypt.
What an example of patience and faith!
How often do we get impatient with God's plan for our lives?
How willing are we to suffer in order to be in the right position for God to work through us?
I pray that whatever our circumstances, God will use them to make us 'who' He wants us to be!
Your Brother in Christ,
