Genesis 50:20, NLT
"You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people."
For thirteen years it seemed as though Joseph's life would end in a deep deficit. He was sold into slavery by brothers who should have loved him, falsely accused of a crime and put in prison by someone who should have trusted him, had a promise broken and was forgotten. Despite all these unfair things, and all the odds against him, Joseph suddenly went from prisoner to the prime minister of Egypt in a single day. God gave Joseph a payback and used it all to work out His plan for Joseph's life.
You may be in a deficit now. Life hasn't been fair, people left you out, a family member turned on you, the sickness set you back. You're tempted to lose your passion, to give up on your dreams. But stay in peace and be your best, for your time is coming. God is about to do something unusual, something extraordinary. Suddenly you're vindicated, suddenly you're promoted, suddenly your crooked places are made straight. What is that? The power of the Most High settling your account.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that what so often looks and feels like an unsolvable deficit is really part of Your plan that moves me to my purpose. Thank You that it's going to lead me into a new level of my destiny that I could never experience without it. I believe You will settle all my accounts. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
