Joseph, a young man of seventeen, was sold by his own brothers to an Ishmaelite caravan who then sold him to Potiphar in Egypt. Falsely accused by Potiphar’s wife, Joseph spent years in prison. Then Joseph was put in charge of storing up grain for the upcoming seven year famine. Fifteen years later, Joseph realizes the purpose for which God allowed him to be sold into Egypt by his family (Genesis 45:7). God sent him to Egypt to save the lives of his brothers who sold him into slavery! Joseph trusted God through a long dark season.
