Genesis 45:5New International Version (NIV)
5 And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here,because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you.
The above passage is from the story of Joseph and it recounts what Joseph said to his brothers who had sold him off as a slave 13 years earlier when he revealed himself to them.
Imagine the shock and dismay on Joseph’s brothers’ face when they heard the above words…. but the words were true.
Now, imagine Jesus telling you that your worst sin….and the worst evil you have ever done was all part of preparing you to be a good missionary to save souls for His kingdom.
Would you take Him at His word, forgive yourself and save the people He has sent you to save?
He is the LORD and there is nothing that is impossible for Him. Surrender to Him today and see how He uses you to save His people.
