Not Your Average Joe – The Providence Of Problems
It’s one of the most noteworthy lives ever lived. It was noteworthy enough to be preserved in the pages of scripture for nearly 4000 years. He is not a superstar or a super hero even. In reality he was the 11th son of Jacob…born late in Jacob’s life. He was just a teen when we meet him. He was rejected by his siblings. He was sold into slavery. He was accused falsely and sent to the darkest of Egyptian dungeons. And he was elevated to eventually become the most powerful man in his time….all by the time he was 30. His name was Joseph, and his story occupies a quarter of the Old Testament book of Genesis. The one resounding thing the scriptures say about Joseph is this: The LORD was with Joseph… Oh that He would be with us all this way.
