Adversity Presents Opportunity

A lesson in perspective

Today’s Through the Bible Reading: Genesis 45:1-46:12

Abbreviated Reading: Genesis 45

"...It was not you who sent me here, but God..." Gen.45:8

Adversity and opposition present opportunity for vision and victory – as seen in today’s reading.

Joseph had been ridiculed and betrayed by his brothers, sold into slavery, falsely accused by Potiphar’s wife, and unjustly imprisoned. This would be cause for discouragement! But Joseph realized and recognized God’s sovereignty.
