Joseph

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.

Walking with & Believing God

Walking with & Believing God

Enoch walked with God,

he never saw death

Abraham believed God,

from his loins came blessings

so the world would have no dearth.

David walked with God,

and danced, full of mirth.

Hannah believed God,

so from her womb, Samuel,

the great prophet, she gave birth.

Let us walk with God,

led by the Spirit of Truth.

Let us believe in God,

searching the scriptures with

the zeal of a sleuth.

Joseph 

Famine, he called upon the land, but God had a 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. No one was found to give the meaning though they searched all around. 
“But wait! a prisoner in chains had such a gift” said the king’s waiter.
So Joseph a man without strife, interpreted it as a message from God to preserve life. 

Jacob’s son with a coat of many colours was also God’s son with a gift to impart heavenly favours. 

His feet with fetters were loose so that matters of life administration they would pursue, for the king “made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance, to bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom”(1)
Life by the side of his earthly father as a child was his privilege.
As an adult, his Heavenly Father’s gift made room for him, so that life preservation for the sake of multitudes become his blessed vocation and message.
