The Man Who Refused to Be Discouraged

When discouragement attempts to sneak in at anytime, Joseph immediately comes to thought.  It seemed he had one challenge after another and he continued to grow spiritually.  Anyone familiar with this story knows that the same brothers that had plotted to kill him but sold him into slavery instead, later in life they owed their very existence to him.  They had to come to him for food.  I never read this without going to Romans 8:28 which reads “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

Every challenge he faced was necessary for his growth, but he was never separated from God and neither are we.  Whenever I feel I am stuck, I simply remind myself that I just cannot see the entire picture yet, but I know it is always good since my life is guided by God and it will soon be revealed to me.
