Can you relate to Joseph?
“Archers attacked him savagely; they shot at him and harassed him. But his bow remained taut, and his arms were strengthened by the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob.” Genesis 49:23–24 NLT
This prophetic word of blessing over Joseph spoken by his father Jacob has always ministered to me. What a great way to describe all of our lives in a way.
Joseph was a man of destiny. He had a great calling on his life. That calling had a process attached to it.
The process was hard. The process was crushing at times. None of this could stop the plan of God from coming to pass.
Joseph stayed faithful to the Lord and refused to become bitter and everything worked out according to the Lord’s intentions.
I can relate to Joseph probably more than any other Bible character in the Old Testament. Do you find yourself in the story of Joseph? Each and every person has an amazing calling from God. They have been called to rescue their family from spiritual famine. Never allow yourself or anyone else to convince you otherwise!
Takeaway: Joseph was harassed, so will you! Joseph was ridiculed, so will you! Joseph was attacked savagely, so will you!
You can’t want the palace and reject the process!
