WHERE YOU BELONG


WHERE YOU BELONG
If Joseph had been overwhelmed by his situation in the dry pit, he would have given in to despair. If he had been over-excited at the good treatment he received in the house of Potiphar, he would have given in to pleasure and pride.  In other words, his dream would have died in him and the promise of God would not have come to fulfilment. But Joseph knew there was something far more important than his present situation – the promise of God for his life, his dream and goal. He waxed strong in his faith by looking steadfastly and only at the promise of God for his life.  He was a child of promise. 

A child of promise knows where he belongs. If you know where you belong, you would not allow anything to overwhelm you, manipulate you or dictate your direction.  You will stay focused on the divine cause and course of God for your life and continue to run the straight race through God’s good grace. No matter the obstacles on your way to the destination, you will always find ways of building bridges which close the gap from where you are now to your destination, even when everything around you seems to suggest that there is no hope or future. Fix your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith (Hebrews 12:2).
