b'TrustA Study of Joseph for Persevering Through Lifes ChallengesJodie NiznikREAL PEOPLE REAL FAITH BIBLE STUDYJodies insightful and practical application of Scripture keeps her studies at the top of my list. Kat Armstrong, author of The In-Between PlaceJ osephs life looked charmed from the beginning. He was the favorite son of the favorite wife of Jacob, a wealthy patriarch. And Joseph was given a prophetic dream from God about his familys future. There was no reason to expect anything going wrongand isnt it simple to have faith when all is well?But one gift too many, and his ten jealous older brothers had had enough. They sold him into slaveryand kicked off years of Josephs world spinning out of control. Yet, in both dire circum-stances and honored positions, he chose to trust God. In the end, God used Joseph to save the very family who betrayed him, and ultimately preserve the lineage of Jesus. Josephs lifes purpose was bigger than he ever anticipated. In times of uncertainty, questioning where God is and what hes up to seems reasonable.
