In the story of Joseph we gain insight into how God works in situations that we see as troubles, but God sees as triumphs in progress.
By the end of this portion of Joseph's story we see his brothers pull him out of the pit where they threw him...so they could sell him into slavery. Talk about a dysfunctional family!
Sometimes God leaves us in an uncomfortable place while other parts of his plan are being prepared.
In Joseph's case that was what needed to happen, and that was when it needed to happen, so Joseph could end up in Egypt and carry out an even larger part of God's plan than he could ever have dreamed. And Joseph was quite the dreamer, as we see in today's message.
Joseph's story does not end in the pit, and your story does not end where you are right now.
