Sweet Words!

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Genesis 41 today.
For 22 years, Joseph was either a slave or a prisoner, although he had done no wrong. How do you deal with that? Eventually, he found freedom. How sweet the words of Pharaoh were to Joseph, when the king of Egypt said, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt” (Genesis 41:41).
As both a slave and a prisoner, he had a measure of authority, because he was always faithful to his God, yet, Joseph was still a slave and later a prisoner. It is better to be a free man with no authority than a man with authority in prison! He did not know why he was suffering, but he remained faithful to God, not even knowing that God was using him to save his family years later.
What are you enduring? Why are you enduring it? How long shall it last? Is God using you? Keep your eyes and ears open to the possibility of serving others and God shall use you to fulfill His will. What then will happen to you, if you submit yourself to the will of God? What shall God do to you?
