And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph’s hand, and arrayed him in clothing of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck; and made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, bow the knee, and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt. (Genesis 41-43)
If you know the story of Joseph you know that he was a dreamer found to be a righteous man. Betrayed by his brothers because his father favored him, Joseph was sold to Ishmaelites who took him to Egypt.
I can not imagine the pain he must have felt to find he was hated by his own brother’s whom he loved dearly. However, it was all because of their jealousy he may have thought, but God had a plan to use him to deliver a nation.
In life their are times we experience pain we don’t understand, and it seems that we are fighting alone. It feels and seems that all have forsaken us, but know that God has a plan. God is about to promote you to a new platform.
He’s taking you to a new arena, he’s building you so that you can feed his flock, bring deliverance to his people. Your light will shine on a hill if you will stay with it and don’t give UP! Be encouraged, hang in there and let God bring you to VICTORY!
