In our last post we saw from the life of Joseph in the book of Genesis that one of the 3 ways that God can turn the PIT of BETRAYAL into the PALACE of BLESSING is through His PLAN! Today we see that the BLESSING of BETRAYAL can also be seen through PEOPLE!

As you read through the story of Joseph as he goes from the PIT to the PRISON and ultimately to the PALACE, you see numbers of people that Joseph was able to impact. These included but were not limited to:

Potiphar's wife
Potiphar's household
The jailer
The cupbearer
The baker
The other prisoners
Pharaoh's household

Think about this! These were all people that Joseph never would have met - never would have come in contact with - had he not got pushed into the PIT of BETRAYAL! What a BLESSING that BETRAYAL can be as God uses it to bring into our lives people that we can impact because we ourselves got pushed into the PIT of BETRAYAL!

So if you are a pastor or ministry leader that has found yourself lying in the bottom of the PIT of BETRAYAL, take heart! Take your eyes off of yourself and look at the people that God has and will bring into your life for you to impact - people that you otherwise would never have met had you not got pushed into the PIT of BETRAYAL! Let God use your ministry in their lives to turn your BETRAYAL into BLESSING!
