It took an immense trust in God and His faithfulness for Joseph to forgive his brothers. He had to understand that it was God’s plan for him to go to Egypt and go through the trials that he went through. He told his brothers that what they intended for evil, God intended for good. It was this belief that God is good and does good that allowed Joseph to look past his brother’s actions and forgive them. It makes me wonder how often I am so focused on the details right in front of me that I forget to look at the bigger picture that God is orchestrating.
