But Joseph said to them, “Do not fear, for am I in the place of God? As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. So do not fear; I will provide for you and your little ones.” Thus he comforted them and spoke kindly to them.
Genesis 50:19-21 ESV
Lord show me how to trust you in all situations of life. Even when those closest to me hurt me deeply, show me how to cling to You instead of bitterness. Joseph not only said that he forgave his brothers, but it was shown through his actions. Give me the spiritual maturity and emotional health to do the same. Help me forgive in my heart and let it be displayed in how I treat other people, especially family members and close friends who have wronged me. Remind me Jesus of how I do not deserve Your forgiveness, yet You give it freely anyway. Let Christ's love and forgiveness flow through my soul in Jesus name!
