- Joseph was a very righteous man but despite this, God let Potiphar’s wife lie against him and have him thrown in jail. If I did not have some understanding (however little) of the way God works, I should accuse him of cruelty for this. But this imprisonment later resulted in good things.
- Although he was blessed in Potiphar’s house, he was still a slave. God used his imprisonment to raise him so that he was second in command in all of Egypt (Gen 40, 41)
- What suffering are you currently going through? Like Joseph, what good do you think God could bring out of it?

Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. – Ephesians 5: 19, 20
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. – Romans 8:18
Now, I have a confession to make. This post probably helped me a lot more than it helped you. I’ll just cap it off with the song.
