If Joseph, son of Jacob, was with us today his closing words of encouragement might be:
1. God is always with you. Good times and bad Jesus’ promise is true.
2. Develop yourself during the downtimes. Always continue to look to God and grow in your faith.
3. Realize that self-promotion can never replace divine promotion. Allow God to place you in the place and position that can serve Him best.
4. When the dream is realized, it is sweeter than you can ever imagine. Even though Joseph’s life was hard, he was able to see how God was making his dream come true.
What dream has God given you? Today take a God step towards making it a reality. Amen?
