Acts 7:9-10 -- On Deliverance

"And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him,
And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house."
Acts 7:9-10

Joseph's life is inspiring.  Even though he was sold into slavery by his brothers (pretty traumatic childhood I would say) and had a lot of dark and challenging times in his life that he probably wasn't sure how he would get out of, he remained upright and full of integrity, and did good to the people around him.  We haven't gone through the same challenges that Joseph did, but I know we all have dark times in our lives where we can't see a way out.  Like Joseph, in the midst of those dark times, we can still have hope, through God, and keep getting back up and doing good.  God delivered Joseph, and he will deliver us all as we have patience and faith and keep striving for good.  Let's work on that today.  Now isn't the end of the story.  Let's keep turning the pages and find the happy ending that God has in store for us all.
