It looks like Joseph is in real trouble. Someone rose up
against him and sold him into slavery. This is a bad thing, and would give
Joseph a very hard life.
God lets this happen but Joseph does not walk alone. Look who is with Joseph,
right in back of him, it is Jesus!!!
Every step Joseph had to take into the pit, Jesus took those steps with
him. Jesus just let it look like Joseph was going to be defeated, but He
was waiting to give him a really big promotion later. Do you know what
a promotion is??
Its being someplace better than you were before. Lets see how that happened
in Josephs life.
Later Joseph became a ruler in all of Egypt next to Pharoah and was able
to help many people. This was Gods plan all along. Something bad turns
into something wonderful.
We can trust Jesus to turn our bad things into good things too. When we
are His children.,our life is in His hands and nothing is out of His control.
