This is the classic story of Joseph being sold into slavery as a result of his brothers being threatened by his dreams of being in an honored position over his them. Little do they know, but they would trade anything for these dreams to come true because it will save their lives. It reminds me that I need to remember that there is a plan behind the events in my life. At the moment, it may seem to difficult or to hard to continue on in faith, but God’s plan is so much bigger than the events of the day or the trial we face. Faithfulness and steadfastness is the way to find yourself on the right path. Fear and questioning will derail me quicker than anything. Are you or have you faced trials? What you do today determines whether or not you stay in the pit or put on the robe!
This blog was originally written by Pastor Doug Bartel of Hillcrest Church, starting in Spring 2009. Keep that in mind if you read anything that doesn't quite add up to the time of year.
Come journey with us as we read through the Bible in a year. It is our desire to hear what God wants from us and to know his promises as well as warnings. Each day we will read a text and together we will share what we are learning and encourage one another to finish the goal!
