FROM PAIN TO GAIN
SCRIPTURE READING: GENESIS 45:1 - 8
The brothers of Joseph hated him because of the favour of God upon his life. They became envious and jealous because of his dreams. In the end, they sold him as a slave to the Ishmaelite who took him to Egypt (Gen 37:36). Joseph must have been very disappointed and pained at this great betrayal while his brothers must have thought that they had destroyed him by their actions. Joseph suffered more betrayals and disappointments in Egypt but in all these, he remained steadfast.
However, when all hope seemed lost, the God of Joseph turned all his pains to gain by using the evil plan of his enemies to promote him (Gen 45). Indeed, our God can turn the plans of our enemies to gain for us because He is able to do all things. I pray that by his divine intervention, all the plans of your enemies this year to cause you pain will be tuned to testimonies and gain for you in Jesus name.
MEDITATION: Your pains are raw materials for divine promotion.
