Trusting God's Ways


Genesis 42-50


The second thing that Joseph have is that he had a dream from God. 'Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers (v5), "There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf."(v7) According to Joseph's dream, he will be the leader of his brothers. I think that Joseph have faith, that God will use him in His sovereignty since he had that dream. That is why he came victorious from many of suffering, in which he was sold as slave to Egypt and he was in prison because of Potiphar's wife's wicked design. And he never criticized them who has given him such distress, it is why he has conviction, which God will use him one day. Therefore, those people who has vision from our Lord, they are able to be patient from any of suffering or severe situation. We who have faith in God can overcome such torments as well because we have a living hope-our Lord Jesus Christ. That is exactly the difference between a believer and an unbeliever.
