Successful Conclusion

Re: Verse reading–Genesis 37:2-14, 18-28, Genesis 39:1-12 (day four)
Isaiah 55:11 says, “So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” God had a plan for Joseph.  He shared it with Joseph when he was just a young man…he would be in a position of authority.  There was no way for Joseph to understand all that would occur in order for God’s plan to come about in his life.  Even the jealousy of his brothers and their desire to kill him could not thwart God’s plan.  If fact, it was used to accomplish His plan.  Potipher’s  wife could not sidetrack God’s plan either.  Joseph stayed true to the God who loved him and kept himself pure for the work God had planned in his life.  For us to remain usable to God, we, like Joseph, must consecrate our lives for His service.  What God plans, He accomplishes!
