Everyone pray for good times to come. Nobody pray for bad times but it comes anyway. And in the bad time, many people stay bad because they see no goodness in the bad times. However, Joseph saw goodness in his bad time. He saw opportunity to ride on the wings of storms.
Do you know that despite all the bad times, Joseph was actually making progress? From slavery field to Portifar’s house, and from Portifar’s house to prison cell. He was making progress because the rough and tough terrain is what the fulfillment of his dream required.
Next time, before you complain, reflect and be thankful for the bad times too!

1st Peter 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”
We continue today to see how God has set apart His adopted heirs, the chosen ones for exploits. This text calls manifestation ‘the showing forth of praises’. This implies that God has decided to be glorified in those He chose.
And you are one of them. The priceless blood of Jesus bought you, redeemed and saved you, that you might be set apart for Glory. How much have you shown forth?
Talk to God: Divine Creator, please help me manifest your glory in Jesus name, amen.
