Recognize the God's hands in your life王山夆 01/15 2117
Life has many dimensions , it is blessed for a man to recognize the dimension of God in his life.
Joseph recognized the hands of the God in his dramatic life. He was sold into Egypt by his brothers when he was young ; in Egypt,he was thrown into prison for the crime he did not commit. But in the end, the Lord made him father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt.
When later his brothers came to buy food from him in a severe famine , Joseph appeared to them and said ," 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. It was not you who sent me here, but God."
Yes. The Lord is my shepherd . It is so true. But sometime the Lord might not shepherd you the way you like, the way you wish , the way you plan. His staff might not always gentle but sometime tough. No matter you like it or not, recognize the God's hands in your life , and follow his staff willingly without complain, because the Lord's way is always the best way for you.
Then Joseph said to his brothers, “Come close to me.” When they had done so, he said, “I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! 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. For two years now there has been famine in the land, and for the next five years there will be no plowing and reaping. But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance. So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God. He made me father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt."
