Why Have We Embraced a Watered-Down, Feel-Good Worldly Gospel? — Charisma Magazine

With the naming of his second son, Ephraim, Joseph made this statement, “For God has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction” (Gen. 41:52b). Joseph lived out the remainder of his days in his land of affliction. The word “affliction” means many things. It means suffering, difficulty, burdens and problems. It means hardships, pain, troubles and misfortunes. It also means misery. This “land of affliction” is the land in which Joseph ministered for his God and to his people, because this is the land to which God sent him. It was also the land in which God made him very fruitful, this “land of my affliction.”
