We will be focusing on the three part story of Joseph the Dreamer. The terrible results of polygamy were manifested in the household of Jacob. The jealousy of several mothers had embittered the family relationship, the children of Jacob had grown up contentious and impatient of self control. There was one child however, the eldest son of Rachel whose name was Joseph, he had a widely different character. Joseph had a rare beauty which reflected his inward beauty of mind and heart. Pure, active, and joyous attributes, accompanied his moral earnestness and firmness. He listened to his father's instructions and loved to obey God. The qualities that afterward distinguished him in Egypt, gentleness, fidelity and truthfulness were already manifest.
One day Joseph told his brothers of a dream he had, which made them angry as they recognise that he was saying that he would reign and have dominion over them. To make matters worst Joseph's father had given him a special coat which signified his important status over his brothers. At the earliest opportunity Joseph's brothers physically and verbally abused him, they stripped him of his coat and sold him into slavery, their parting mocking words being, 'what will become of your dream now?'
But the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob was with Joseph, He had been the giver of the dream and He was able to bring it to fulfilment.
So join us on Prayers of Hope and be encouraged as hope is kept burning brightly in midst of a stormy saga in the life and times of faithful Joseph.
