Joseph said to his brothers, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” - Genesis 50:20 (NIV)
The word providence speaks of God’s divine care and guidance in our lives. This was certainly true in the life of Joseph whose brothers sorely mistreated him. (See Gen. 37.) But as Joseph reflected on all of his experiences in life, he could clearly see God’s abiding care.
In today’s challenge, I will strive to see God’s blessing for tomorrow.
