Day 21 – Security
Genesis 50:19-21 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
19 And Joseph said unto them, “Fear not; for am I in the place of God?
20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me, but God meant it unto good to bring to pass as it is this day, to save many people alive.
21 Now therefore fear ye not; I will nourish you and your little ones.” And he comforted them, and spoke kindly unto them. via Genesis 50:19-21 KJ21 – And Joseph said unto them Fear not; for – Bible Gateway.
The security of Joseph.
Admittedly, I am not in the same league as Joseph when it comes to appropriating security as my own. But I’m learning!
What does the Text say?
What you meant for evil, God meant for good.
In this context Joseph is reunited with his brothers after many years of separation. A separation they conspired. They hated Joseph. They intended him great harm. And Jehovah allowed it. For a reason and a season. For reasons that Joseph did not comprehend and for a season’s length that he did not know. But Joseph learned to live in the here and now security of the good purposes of God. It did not happen overnight, but it did happen.
It is not happening overnight for me either, but it is happening. And today is a good day to give thanks for the Security I have in the here and now in The Great I AM. To appropriate for myself that whatever comes my way today, even the evil intents of others, ABBA, is bringing good from it.
Perhaps you would like to join me in giving thanks that ABBA is bring good from every evil assault plotted against you too.
