Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more. So he said to them, “Please hear this dream which I have dreamed: And his brothers said to him, “Shall you indeed reign over us? Or shall you indeed have dominion over us?” So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words.

Genesis 37:5-6, 8 NKJV

At first, your understanding of God’s purpose for your life and your determination to pursue and fulfil it may attract opposition, persecutions and trials to your life. God may allow that you receive criticism rather than praise and recognition, hatred instead of love.

You may seem not to understand such circumstances at the moment, but if you remain faithful and committed to the Lord in spite of all, you will see God’s hands in it all eventually.

God’s thoughts towards you are infinitely higher than yours. God always acts according to His determinate counsel. Therefore, don’t loose hope, never give up and don’t turn back yet. The Lord will surely show Himself mighty on your behalf and deliver you from the hands of those laying heavy burdens on your back. Good morning and do have a fruitful day.

Your brother,

Olufemi Babalola
