Blessings come in various sizes and shapes. Joseph thought that God had forgotten all about him. However, His faithfulness came shining through to him, as he was lifted up to Egypt’s ruler and saved many people from famine (Gen. 37-46). When Jesus shuts one door, another one opens. The psalmist exclaims, “Oh, how great is your goodness, which you have laid up for those who fear you (Psalm 31:9).
