The story of Joseph is one of the most well-known stories in the Bible and there is much encouragement we can take from Joseph's life. Joseph experienced a very difficult life for many years due to his brother's hatred toward him. But when we look at Joseph's life from beginning to end, the hand and goodness of God are all over it. Even in our deepest trials, we can trust that God is working all things for his glory and for our good. "As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today." Genesis 50:20
