The Sovereignty of God in Joseph Life

The Sovereignty of God in Joseph Life

Published by Dave
In his epistle to the Romans, the apostle Paul of Tarsus wrote, “We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). It is indeed a precious promise for Christians to be assured that God’s sovereignty encompasses every single event with the design for our ultimate good and for His glory. Absolutely all things – including death, life, tragedies, present circumstances or the future – happen only by the decretive will of a loving Father . Perhaps, this understanding of divine providence has been most clearly illustrated in the narrative of Joseph’s life. The present assignment seeks to discuss how seemingly ‘chance’ events which God had ordained in the patriarch’s entire career work out for the good of His covenant community in redemptive history.
