Transforming Your Pain Into Purpose
God is Near
"The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian" (Genesis 39:2 NKJV). Joseph arrived in Egypt with nothing but the clothes on his back and the call of God on his heart. Yet by the end of four verses, he was running the house of the man who ran security for Pharaoh. How do we explain this turnaround? Simple: God was with him.
Here you are in your version of Egypt. It feels foreign. You don't know the language. You never studied the vocabulary of crisis. You feel far from home, all alone. Money gone. Expectation dashed. Friends vanished. Who's left? God is. Your family may be gone. Your supporters may have left. Your counselor may be silent. But God has not budged. His promise still stands: "I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go" (Genesis 28:15 NIV).
You will never go where God is not.
