Genesis 37
What man intended for evil, God intended for good.

Joseph the Dreamer (Gen. 37)

If you recall Joseph’s story, we can say that the thing that triggered all of his unfortunate events was his coat of many colors, given to him by his father, and his dream. These two were supposed to make Joseph happy but it didn’t turn quite well for him. He was hated much more by his brothers, sold as a servant in Egypt, accused of a sin he didn’t commit, and was thrown in prison. But after all those misfortunes, Joseph never lose faith in God. God also didn’t forsaken him and He blessed him very much.

Ever since I was a kid, I loved his story. It shows that God will never leave us, and He has a plan for everyone of us.
Even if we feel like we’re trapped in the dark, or misfortunes happen one after another, God has a plan.
Even if the whole world hated us, or feel like there’s no hope left for us, God loves us and He won’t forsake us.
Isn’t that amazing to know that there is a God who loves us and will never leave us?
There is a God who has a better future planned ahead of us! We just need to trust in His words and have faith in Him.
