Problems

Is there a person who makes your life difficult? Do you know someone who makes fun of you? Is there someone who never seems to understand you?

There always seems to be problems in our lives — financial problems, relationship problems, problems at work. We enjoy life, and then suddenly, a new problem happens. It may be hard for you to think about all the problems in your life. Maybe you feel alone and discouraged.

At the end of the book of Genesis, we learn that Jacob died. Then Joseph’s brothers were afraid that he would do something bad to them. But Joseph realized that God had been with him all throughout his life. Joseph talked about this in Genesis 50:20. “It is true that you planned to do something bad to me. But really, God was planning good things. God’s plan was to use me to save the lives of many people. And that is what happened.” Joseph realized that God had turned something bad into something good.

It is sometimes hard to understand God’s plan for our lives. But we should always remember that God can bring good things from our problems. God has given you this day to serve Him. Keep focused on Him and His Word!
