“Everything Is Against Me!”

“Their father Jacob said to them: You have deprived me of my children. Joseph is no more and Simeon is no more–and now you want to take Benjamin. Everything is against me!” (Genesis 42:36)

 “Those circumstances, which to the dim eye of Jacob’s faith wore a hue so somber–were at that very moment developing and perfecting the events which were to shed around the evening of his life, the halo of a glorious and cloudless sunset! God was working all things together for his good!”

“Just so, troubled soul, the ‘much tribulation’ will soon be over–and as you enter the ‘kingdom of God’ you shall then see, no longer ‘through a glass darkly’ but in the unshadowed sunlight of the Divine presence, that ‘all things’ did  indeed ‘work together’ for your personal and eternal good!”
