His brothers were so jealous and full of hatred that they sold him into slavery. What Joseph’s brothers meant for harm actually was used for the glory of God. Had he not been sold to slavery, Joseph never would have become second in command after the king. He and his brothers, Egypt and the surrounding nations would have fallen into even tougher times if not for the Godly insight given to Joseph about the impending famine.
People will try and put you down for your dreams and tell you that it can never happen, that the odds are against you. However, if it is a God given dream He will make a way. Follow the dreams that God has instilled in your heart, He put them there for a reason, for a purpose. He loves you and created you just the way that you are.
Walk by faith knowing that God is with you every step of the way.
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.
