Devotional: Dreamers Keep Rising
Life’s circumstances are not always reflective of God’s favor. We see this in Joseph’s life. Despite being sold into slavery, Joseph found favor in Potiphar’s home. Joseph could have ruminated about the past, he could have dwelled on the injustice done to him, or he could have focused on God’s goodness in spite of circumstances. By staying faithful to God and trusting in God’s favor to continue to bless him, Joseph was allowing God to help him rise. Dreamers don’t stay down when circumstances are unfavorable, but they receive God’s favor, which in the end, supersedes all earthly circumstances.
