Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he wasthe son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours. Genesis 37:3
Joseph had favor with his father and was giving a special gift, a Coat of many Colors, this gift made his brothers so jealous they plotted to kill him and eventually sold him into slavery.
We all have been given a gift from our Heavenly Father, maybe you have been blessed with a special talent or skill, or maybe you have been blessed with a family or prosperity. Whatever your “Coat of Many Colors” is it makes people around you jealous or maybe even your own family is now against you. Don’t lose heart God has a plan for you
Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our hand be upon him; for he is our brother and our flesh. And his brethren were content Genesis 37:27
Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery and eventually he ended up in prison, however God was always with Joseph and turned his tragedies into triumphs. By the grace of God , Joseph ended up being in charge even though he was a Hebrew slave.
Don’t let your current circumstances defeat you , just like Joseph God is with you and wont forsake you. He will make you enemies your footstool to your destiny
And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand Genesis 39:2-3
No matter what happened to Joseph God made him prosper, man tried to make him a slave and God made him a master, man then tried to make him a prisoner and God made him a ruler, Man can’t stop you from your divine destiny as long as you keep following God
And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt. Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life. Genesis 45:4-5
Joseph had every right to hate his brothers, but he stayed in peace and forgave them. He knew the no weapon formed against him would prosper, whatever was meant for his harm God would use for his good.
Are you burdened today by your “Coat of Many Colors” the gift giving to you by God? Just remember if God is for us who can be against us, embrace your gifts and use them to glorify God and everything you do will work out in Jesus Name Amen
