Spiritual Warfare: 'God Uses Your Difficulties to Save Others'

God's Power for Our Battles — Wednesday, April 6, 2022

"Please come closer to me," Joseph said to his brothers. When they did so, he said, "I am Joseph, the brother you sold into slavery in Egypt! Now, don't be sad or angry with yourselves that you sold me. God sent me ahead of you to save lives."
— Genesis 45:4-5 GWT

Today's Prayer

Lord, sometimes it's easy to wallow in my problems and my hardships. Thank You for the story of Joseph that reminds me that sometimes You let troubles come into my life so I can do something important to You and possibly even life-saving to others. Help me to keep my daily struggles in perspective. And open my eyes to how my current and past problems can help others. Use me to Your glory. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
