Life is full of ups and downs. And it’s just human nature that we prefer the ups over the downs. But that’s not reality… we can’t pick and choose what tomorrow brings. But each day has something in common. In the good times, God wants us to do one thing… remain faithful to Him. And when the bottom falls out, God still wants us to do one thing… remain faithful to Him.
We see it all throughout the life of Joseph. When God Himself gave Joseph a dream, revealing His plan, it was easy for Joseph to trust God since his future was bright. But what that dream didn’t show was the years of discouragement… the disappointments… the trials… the temptations.
And like us, in the face of each of these, Joseph had a choice. He could cave in, or he could remain faithful to his God, regardless of the setbacks. Over the course of this series, you’ll be reminded once again that the life of Joseph is more than just a story in the Bible… it’s a powerful example of what God wants from each of us… on the days when everything is going great… and the days “When Dreams Turn to Ashes.”
