God gave Joseph a dream at a young age that he would someday be a great leader. His brothers, however, were jealous of him and sold him to merchants who took him to Egypt. In Egypt, Joseph faced many harsh circumstances. Yet, God used the adversity and blessed him to rise from being a slave to becoming a great ruler in Egypt.

When you face adversity, trust God for the things you cannot control or understand. If you continue to trust Him in the tough times, you will see that you can advance in adversity as God plans His best for you.

God promised to always be by your side,

To be your help, your friend, and your guide,

So, always remember in all you go through,

That He’s really planning His best for you.
