The psalmist says, “When the Lord delivered Sion from bondage, it seemed like a dream.” The ways of God are such that he makes dreams into reality in the lives of people. It is often said that destiny can never be denied, it can only be delayed. That is so true. God’s plans for his children come to pass notwithstanding the obstacles. As children of God, all we have to do is depend on the sure mercies of God. The brothers of Joseph would never have imagined this blow that God has dealt them. May God help us to bear him urging us on even in our darkest moments.
