When life gives us ups and downs, how should we respond? Joseph lived through significant difficulties and turmoil. Though his experience in Potiphar’s house, we see Joseph’s character and God’s steadfast love. The story reminds us of an overarching truth: that God, in His sovereignty, is working all things out for good. In the midst of our own difficulties, we tend to take a narrow focus and often ask about God’s intention in a particular moment in time. But when we zoom out and see the bigger picture of what God is doing in our lives, His work reveals a far more beautiful tapestry. Through the pits and the peaks of life, God is steadfast.
