Have you ever been in a situation where you have felt safe, loved, and known, and then to feeling vulnerable, unwanted, and alone. This is exactly what happened to Joseph (the one with the technicolour dream coat.)
He was thrown into a pit because his brothers were angry and jealous. But his story didn’t end there. "the Lord was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favour" (Genesis 39:21)
God never abandoned Joseph, and we see that God redeemed his painful past and brought something good out of it.
In the same way, when we experience heartbreak and rejection, it often isn’t deserved. And sometimes, like Joseph, we might not even see it coming. Then, suddenly, we’re at the lowest point in our lives feeling hurt, vulnerable, and alone.
Rejection can lead to God’s redirection. When The good news is, the same God who stayed with Joseph is with us as well. allow our loving Father to redirect us, we will be able to look back one day and see all of the goodness God brought from the rejection we’ve experienced.
The good news is, the same God who stayed with Joseph is with us as well.
Take time today and look back and see God's hand on you as He has shown himself to be "Immanuel": God with you.
