But God-Meant It For Good!

Genesis 50:20 Amplified Bible (AMP)
20 As for you, you meant evil against me, BUT God meant it for good in order to bring about this present outcome, that many people would be kept alive [as they are this day].

Romans 8:26-28 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Our Victory in Christ
26 In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groanings too deep for words. 27 And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because the Spirit intercedes [before God] on behalf of God’s people in accordance with God’s will.
28 And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.

    From OurDailyBread:

    INSIGHT

    Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers at age seventeen (Genesis 37:2, 27–28) and was later imprisoned after being wrongly accused of trying to sleep with his master’s wife (39:1–20). Thirteen years passed from when he first became a slave to when he entered Pharaoh’s service (41:46). God was with Joseph when he was a slave (39:2–6) and while he was in prison (vv. 20–23), and He later used him to prepare the land for famine. This allowed him to save his family, God’s people, from starvation and bring them to Egypt (see chs. 41–47). If Joseph hadn’t been sold into slavery, he wouldn’t have been in a position to get his family to Egypt to survive the famine. If they’d died, then Jesus, a descendant of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, would not have come from that line. Ultimately, God used Joseph’s life to set His plan of redemption into motion.
