Several years ago the state was rebuilding an overpass near my house in Nashville, TN. Three lanes reduced to one, transforming a morning commute into a gridlock. The project, like human history, seemed like it was in development since before time began. My neighbors played parts of highway engineers. Everyone acted as if they were consultants to the department of transportation. But the best clarity about the road came from one who said, “It’ll take time,” “but it will all get finished.” They had faith in the plans.
In the Old Testament story of Joseph, God allows us to study His plans. Brothers dumping brother. But watch the Master Builder at work. He cleared debris, stabilized the structure. And the chaos of Genesis 37:24…They cast Joseph into the pit..became the triumph of Genesis 50:20— God intended it for good and life for many people. God redeemed the story of Joseph. Can’t He redeem your story as well?
