Episode 7

Life's Journeys | "God's Goodness (Part 4)"

THEME VERSE: Genesis 45:7-8 – “And God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant on earth, and to keep alive for you many survivors. So, it was not you who sent me here, but God.” 

SHOW NOTES: The story of Joseph has grabbed our hearts. This young man – certainly not perfect – faced some very difficult trials in his life and yet, he continued to trust God. The twists and turns in Joseph’s journey in Egypt span over more than 27 years. He demonstrates great wisdom, discernment, and control when his 10 older brothers come to purchase grain. He keeps Simeon in Egypt and tells the 9 brothers they must return with the younger brother if they hope to see his face again. Eventually, Jacob allows Benjamin to travel with the brothers back to Egypt to purchase more grain and Judah gives his life as a pledge for Benjamin’s safe return. Joseph invites them to a feast at his home, where he watches and observes the brothers closely. How do they treat each other? How do they treat Benjamin? He plans one more important test for the brothers and Judah steps forward to take the place of the youngest brother. When Joseph reveals his identity to the brothers, he pronounces God’s sovereign plan to preserve many lives. He tells them, “You did not send me here, but God.” Scripture: Genesis 43–50
