May 6 Devotion: What Good can be Found in Heartache?

Gen. 37:3-4Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

The hatred of his brothers brought much heartache into the life of Joseph, he…

-was placed in a Pit

-was Purchased for slavery

-was wronged in Potiphar’s house

-was put in Prison (for over 2 years)

-until he was brought to the Palace

In all of his heartache Joseph found the goodness of God revealed time after time.

What Good can be Found in Heartache?

*Joseph found the…

1. Presence of God is good!

2. Protection of God is good!

3. Power of God is good!

4. Provision of God is good!

5. Providence of God is good! **God’s means of revealing His goodness is often experienced in the darkest times of our lives.  When facing trials, do you look for His goodness or do you choose to focus on the negatives? Oh may we learn to depend on God and seek His face! When we seek His face we’ll find His goodness! –Pastor Doug Foster
