Joseph could not stand it no longer. “Out, all of you!” he cried out to his attendants. He wanted to be alone with his brothers when he told them who he was. Then he broke down and wept aloud. His sobs could be heard throughout the palace and the news was quickly carried to the Pharaoh’s palace


And he said again, “I am Joseph, your brother whom you sold into Egypt. But do not be angry with yourselves that you did this to me, for God did it. He sent me here ahead of you to preserve your lives. There will be five more years of famine. God has sent me here to keep you and your families alive so that you will become a great nation. It was God who sent me here, not you. And He has made me a counselor to Pharaoh, manager of his entire household and ruler over all Egypt.
“Hurry, return to my father and tell him that his son Joseph said:  God has made me master over all the land of Egypt. Move over here right away!
Pharaoh Invites Jacob to Egypt.
The news soon reached Pharaoh that Joseph’s  brothers have come. Pharaoh was very happy to hear this and so were his official.  Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Tell your brothers to load their pack animals and return quickly to their homes in Canaan.
Tell them to bring your father and all of their families to come here to Egypt to live. Tell them ‘Pharaoh will assign to you the very best territory in the land of Egypt. You will live off the fat of the land!” 
And so the story  goes that Jacob set out for Egypt with all his family and his possessions. 
(Try to make time to read the story in more detail in the book of Genesis, Ch. 37 to 50. Joseph was successful in whatever good he did, where ever he was, because God was with him. If you truly love, trust and obey the Lord, you will be successful in whatever good things you do. There will be problems no doubt, but you will come out the victor!! 
You maybe an auto mechanic, air & heat serviceman, janitor, salesmen, CEO, Congressman,  a Pastor of a Church, or President, - if the Lord is with you, you will be successful. But if you start compromising, or bending the rules, you will fail no matter how smart you think you are. You will be stressed out, start eating or drinking too much, start having high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high sugar, become a diabetic citizen, arthritic, and eventually die. Or you may end up in jail. Spend time to think about it)
Ref. Genesis, (Ch. 45-46), the first of 66 books of the Bible, Tyndale House Publishes, Inc., (New Living Translation)


“I am Joseph!”  he said to his brothers.  “Is my father still alive?” His brothers were speechless!. They were stunned to realize that Joseph was standing there in front of them. “Come over here,” he said. So they came closer.
