Freedom in Forgiveness-Wednesday Word

But the Lord was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
Genesis 39:21 ESV

After being sold into slavery at 17 Joseph gained the trust of his master and was promoted to being in charge of the house. After several years of faithful work his master's wife falsely accuses Joseph of attempted rape. Now, in his twenties, he is sent to prison. In his lowest point, where many of us would be angry and bitter, we see God's intervention. Joseph knew God's steadfast love; encompassing His love, faithfulness, and strength. Joseph knew God deeply and was a man of spiritual maturity and emotional health. What about you? How do you deal with your emotions? The only way to emotional health is know the love of Christ for yourself and developing that relationship. Knowing the depth of God's love and forgiveness for you will free you to love and forgive others too!
