Transformed by Suffering

Transformed by Suffering

Joseph’s dreams of exaltation and prominence alienated his brothers. Little did he know that the fulfillment of his dreams included personal suffering. God would use Joseph’s experiences —being cast aside by his brothers, sold into slavery, and falsely imprisoned in a foreign land—to transform Joseph’s heart and leadership perspective. As a result, Joseph’s humble, God-confident service brought blessing to Potiphar, Pharaoh, the people of Egypt, and his own family. How are you using your leadership role to bless others?

And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you.  . . . But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance. – Genesis 45:5, 7

Prayer: God, transform my perspective—especially in difficult circumstances—so that I rely on You and focus on blessing others according to Your good purpose. In Jesus’ name, amen.
