- Sold into slavery by his heartless brothers (Genesis 37)
- Thrown into prison by a lying woman (Genesis 39)
- Forgotten by the cupbearer (Genesis 40)
When most of us hit walls, we think God must be against us and often we give up, get bitter, or wallow in self-pity. Joseph may have felt like giving up too, but not for long. He knew God had purposes for his life, and he accepted the walls as part of God’s purposes.
Joseph kept on keepin on even when walls stood directly in the path of God’s purposes.
The Bible talks about this quality when it says “it is commendable if a man bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because he is conscious of God” (1 Peter 2:19).
Have you hit a wall in your life? If so, don’t let it knock you off your feet…get up, think of the God who loves you deeply, and keep on keepin on.
