Famine, He called upon the land,
but God had a divine plan, so He sent Joseph His beloved son.
In slavery he was sold, in prison he was thrown but to save him there was none.
In God’s appointed time, the king had a dream, though among his gifted counsellors interpretation was no where found.
“But wait! a prisoner in chains is the key” uttered Pharaoh’s waiter with no charge or fee.
So Joseph void of strife, interpreted it as a message from God to preserve life.
His feet with fetters were loose so that matters of administration they could pursue, for the king “made him lord of his house, and ruler of …his substance …to teach his senators wisdom”(1), we know this to be true.
His earthly father’s coat of many colours was a childhood privilege, while heavenly Father’s many favours shows in adulthood his life spoke a clear message:
Set apart, to ensure men lived and did not die, a Christlike life given for many regardless of nationality, race or hue.
-Inspiration from the book of Genesis’ story of Joseph & Psalm 105.
