Lead on Joseph!! Show us the way with faith!
Genesis 37:7-8 "We were out in the field, tying up bundles of grain. Suddenly my bundle stood up, and your bundles all gathered around mine!" His brothers responded, "So you think you will be our king, do you? Do you actually think you will reign over us?" And they hated him all the more because of his dreams and the way he talked about them."
Genesis 47:5-6 "Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Now that your father and brothers have joined you here, choose any place in the entire land of Egypt for them to live. Give them the best land of Egypt. Let them live in the region of Goshen. And if any of them have special skills, put them in charge of my livestock too."
I never read once where Joseph lost his faith. I never read any place where Joseph was filled with hate over his life and the circumstances that surrounded him. May we learn from Joseph and the example that God gives us through him to hold on my friends. Have faith. Surrender our fears and worries to the God that is in total control of our lives!!
