Stay the Course

Do weird things happen in your house? My printer occasionally turns itself on in the middle of the night. No one ever believed me…that is until my family stayed over one night and slept in the same room!

My printer reminds me of Joseph and his dreams. Like my dreams, or yours, they may be hard to believe until you see the results for yourself. Joseph’s dreams were not fulfilled for many, many years. All kinds of tragedies could have turned him from his dreams and his trust in God. Yet Joseph stayed the course, always choosing obedience to God even though other ways tempted and tried him. You can read all of this for yourself in Genesis chapters 37-41.

Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt. (Genesis 41:41, AMP)

Even though our dreams may not yet have come to pass yet, God is faithful. I love the way He told Moses that very thing.

I am the Lord (you have the pledge of My changeless omnipotence and faithfulness). (Exodus 6:8b, AMP)

God is still working in our lives. All He asks is that we be faithful in return.

Prayer: Lord, may we be found faithful (proving ourselves worthy of trust). Amen. (from 1 Corinthians 4:2)
