Judges 11:3 “Then Jephthah fled from his brethren, and dwelt in the land of Tob: and there were gathered vain men to Jephthah, and went out with him.”
Joseph didn’t do well until he finally landed in Egypt. The nation of Egypt became his own version of Tob. If only his brothers knew that they were pushing him to Tob, they would have left him in Canaan. Hear this:
Genesis 37:18 “And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him.”
Genesis 37:27 “Come and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren were content”
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.”
Beloved, as a pastor, I have realized that the most difficult person to counsel is a man that just arrived in Tob. How do you tell Joseph that Tob or Egypt as it were is the place that is allocated for the fulfilment of his destiny? How do you explain to a man that the enmity against him is about to lead to his promotion?
How do you explain to the children of Israel that beyond the Red Sea lies freedom and a land filled with milk and honey after four hundred and thirty years of slavery?
It might not make sense but I am glad to let you know this morning that God want you to know you’re finally in Tob! You’re closer now to your promotion than where you used to be.
Where you are currently may be due to the “seemingly bad arrangement” of men but know that it is enroute your destiny fulfilment.
Nothing can work against you. I want you to know that at the end, it will all add up and make proper sense. Hear this:
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good…”
