Some paths we walk in blissful ignorance while others reveal the hidden treasures buried within the walls of limitation.
Was Joseph supposed to know that a trap was being set up against him? He lavishly wrapped himself with his coat of many colors and danced his way to a path of destruction. Even so, what his enemy meant for evil, God turned around for his good.
Because God sees every veiled plot of the enemy. He sits in His lofty throne and laughs at every attempt to destroy the beloved. In His secret wisdom, He allows what in His mighty power He could have easily stopped.
Dig deep my friend, and you’ll see that the path hides many untold treasures . It was in suffering that Christ obtained the crown. For the graves could not hold Him down.
Was Joseph supposed to know just how ugly and wicked the plan was? To crush and to cripple was the heart of the scheme. But the battle was never his to fight, for the Lord of Hosts had a much greater plan.
“Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.” (Psalm 91:7).
In the end Joseph had the final laugh. For the Lord had caused him to forget all his troubles. The Lord had prospered him in the land of his affliction.
The Lord had abundantly poured forth the hidden treasures found in the barren wilderness.
