Life is spiritual. The things that happen around us are created from things that we do not see. Someone said we are spiritual being going through a human experience on this earth. This is very true. We are all spirits that are on a journey on this earth undergoing a human experience. You have been set apart for greatness. God placed you here for a special reason. Let us examine the life of Joseph.
Genesis 37:1-3 “And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan. These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report. Now Israel (Jacob) loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colors.”
One remarkable thing that Joseph did as a young man was to stay righteous and live a life free from peer pressure. The Bible accounts that Joseph was not part of the mischief and evil deeds which his brothers did. He often report these evil deeds to his father and his brethren did not like this. Jacob loved Joseph more because he was the son of his old age. This does not mean that Joseph was conceived when Jacob was old, it means that Joseph had taken up the role of sonship when Jacob was old. Joseph was looking after the affairs of his father when his father was old. While his brothers sold the sheep and cows and kept the money to themselves, Joseph would sell his sheep and bring the profits home. This made his brothers even angrier at him.
Do you sometimes feel isolated from the others at your place of work or among your mates? The reason may be simple, they may be participating in an activity that is not holy. This is what happened to Joseph, the only way that his brothers would conceal their evil deeds was to stay far away from Joseph. He was their worst enemy. He would not party with them and spend the money that they got from mischievous deeds. However, he found favour with his father – Jacob. It does not matter who is against you in this life; if God is for you, no one can bring you down.
