Joseph, when he was young, had a dream and trusted God that his dream would become a reality. His brothers, however, were not happy about the dream. They were not only unhappy about the dream; they were also unhappy because their father had always loved Joseph more than them. All these made them agree to kill him, but they had forgotten that no one can kill the person that God has blessed.
When Joseph was sold to Egypt as a slave, God was with him. And wherever he went, God’s blessing was with him because he trusted that God would fulfil the dreams he had as a teenager in his life. Remember, he was alone, far away from home and had no family member with him.
So, it must have been so hard for him to trust God to help him. Even though he was accused wrongly of sexual harassment in Potiphar’s house and thrown into prison, God was still with him and faithful to him (Genesis 39:21-23). It took God’s intervention by way of making Pharaoh have a dream that only Joseph could interpret before Joseph’s life changed.
Beloved, even with all Joseph went through in Egypt and in the hand of his siblings, one thing we can all learn and follow is Joseph’s trust in God. Even though we cannot see any good thing coming out of our situation, let us believe that God is at work in our favour. Faith works on what we hope on in Jesus, not what we can see physically (Hebrews 11:1).
The only way faith can work in our lives is by trust in God. To achieve trust in God requires our commitment to Him fully, being serious with Him and following Him with our hearts, spirits and souls. I pray that all we are trusting God for will manifest in our lives, in the name of Jesus.
I enjoin you to avoid the mistakes that Joseph’s brothers made. Let the love of God fill your heart. Be an ambassador of brotherly love and seek peace with all men. Say no to sibling rivalry, hatred and disunity. You should be your brother’s keeper, not seller or killer!
1. O Lord, I rededicate my life to You, in the name of Jesus.
2. Help me to always trust in You, in the name of Jesus.
3. I put my trust in You, O Lord, let me not be put to shame, in the name of Jesus.
4. Every spirit of shame and disgrace in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
5. I bind and cast out from my life every spirit of unbelief, in the name of Jesus.
6. Let Your trust, O Lord, fill my heart, in the name of Jesus.
7. I speak woe unto the spirit of shame, in the name of Jesus.
