Today on Commuter Bible, Joseph loses it all, then gains it all, then loses it all again, and then gains more than ever could have dreamed. Actually, I take that back: by God’s sovereign decree, it’s exactly how he dreamed. ::: It’s Genesis 39-42, and Psalm 11.
This is Commuter Bible, the audio Bible podcast to match your weekly schedule; I’m your host, John Ross.
When Joseph is sold into slavery it seems that he has lost it all, except that Joseph has not lost what is most important: he hasn’t lost God’s divine and unmerited favor. God divinely orchestrates the salvation of His people and sustains the country of Egypt through Joseph. His circumstances seem devastating in the short term, and remarkable in hindsight. As we’re told in Romans 8:28 “We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.”
