Joseph: Detour–Finding Purpose in Perplexity
How do you respond when life doesn’t turn out as you dreamed? Where do you turn when each day is more challenging than the previous one? Who do you rely on when your assignment goes from bad to worse? How do you react when life is filled with pain, challenges, disappointment, and adversity?
The story of Joseph is seemingly filled with one detour after another. And yet, each detour is part of God’s sovereign plan to prepare Joseph for an even greater assignment. Just like Joseph, we can see God’s fingerprints on the detours of our lives. We can have the confidence that God can be trusted even when it appears we are off course.
