The Life of Joseph in the Bible

bible.jpg

Let's take a brief look at the life of Joseph. What do we learn? How did God orchestrate the events of his life? These are questions to ask ourselves as we read. He enjoyed a quiet and peaceable life, was loved by his father, Jacob, above the rest of his brothers. He had plenty of food to eat and we do not read of him having any health problems (Genesis chapter 37). He was then mistreated by his siblings and sold into Egypt, but again, he received good things from God who caused all that he put his hands to to prosper (Genesis 39:1-3).

God exalted him to the position of overseer of the house of his master, the Egyptian (Genesis 39:4-5). The life of Joseph was blessed by God. Soon afterward, he would face persecution for his righteousness. Joseph went to prison as an innocent young man. He refused to break God's law in lying (sleeping) with his master's wife. This obedience to God brought persecution into the life of Joseph (Genesis 39:7-20). Nevertheless, God was with him in prison, to ease his persecution that he had to face. We read:

But the Lord was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison. And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison,; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it. The keeper looked not to any thing that was under his hand; because the Lord was with him, and that which he did, the Lord made it to prosper. (Genesis 39:21-23)

Later we read that God blessed and exalted Joseph to a position of being ruler over the land of Egypt. His position was inferior only to the Pharaoh's throne (Genesis 41:39-41).

Later, in the book of Psalms, we learn that the persecution in the life of Joseph had been established by God to last a specific period of time. The Bible says:

He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant: Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron: Until the time that his word came: the word of the Lord tried him (tested his faith) The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free. He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance. (Psalm 105:17-21)

The phrase "Until the time that his word came" refers to the interpretations that God gave Joseph for the dreams of Pharaoh's chief of the butlers and the dream of his bakers that came to pass. This later lead to the Pharaoh consulting Joseph for the interpretation of his own dream for which God again gave interpretation (Genesis 40th chapter and verses 1-45 of chapter 41). It is the word of the Lord (God's revelations of the dreams given to Joseph for him to tell) that delivered him whose trial of faith was then complete.

God's word washed away the marred reputation and persecution that fallen on the life of Joseph. The pharaoh would not believe that God would give so great a wisdom and power to foretell dreams to a sinful, wicked man, but rather to one who was righteous in his eyes (Genesis 41:38-39). It was not God's will for Joseph to be persecuted relentlessly, with no rest, throughout all of his life because of his righteousness. This is one of the most important lessons and truths we learn from the studying the biblical account of the life of Joseph. If you have not read the story, you may read for yourself following the scriptural references provided in this article.
