Sometimes when you think you have got it all locked down, something funny happens.
Joseph was his fathers favorite. He had a coat of many colour signifying the hope and promise that his father believed would become his reality. He also had a dream from God of greatness and leadership. How much better can things get on the plain where all men are born equal?
The next events of Joseph’s life didn’t seem like the natural next steps. From tending the Pastures for this Father in Padanaram, he’s plunge into a Pit of hopelessness, sold into slavery further down into Egypt and Potiphar’s house and soon to Prison, before things began to ever look up again into the Palace. Joseph spent years in the hands of discouraging events, he was locked down in despairing realities, but while Joseph moved lower and lower, something was rising, something was happening behind the scenes of the seemingly hopeless drama!
As we take a look into the journey of Joseph, and the amazing things that God plots out with this template life, we will realize God’s invisible workings in our own lives, and come to agree, that so far we keep in step with the principles of Joseph, reinforced by Jesus, we are bound for high places. Don’t give in, your story cannot end in that Pit!
