Why is this happening to me?-13
Genesis 25:22 “But the two children struggled with each other in her womb. So she went to ask the Lord about it. “Why is this happening to me?” she asked.” (NLT)
Genesis 25:22 “But the children struggled together within her; and she said, “If [all is] well, why [am I] [like] this?|” So she went to inquire of the LORD.” (NKJV)
Genesis 37: 28 “Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.”
Betrayal, trodden upon, stabbed in the back, lied against, taken far away from comfort, thrown into prison unjustly, dreams stolen, destiny truncated, summarise the life of Joseph.
All these terrible stuff happened to him within a span of seventeen years. It was as though his very life was over. I guess he must have asked this same question over and over, Why is this happening to me?
Now we know better; all that stuff happened to him because of the position of Prime Minister of the strongest nation on earth. He was like that for some time because he was destined to rule the planet earth!
Genesis 49:39 “And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:”
Genesis 49:40 “Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled only in the throne will I be greater than thou.”
Genesis 49:41 “And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.”
Genesis 49:42 “And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph’s hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck
Joseph arrived Egypt in chains, but became a ruler in that same land. I now understand why he was like that.
To be continued…
