There is hope for you
Man is not greater than his thoughts shaped and formed by things he sees, hears and read. Jesus said, you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. It means, it is the revelation you get that changes you from one level to another; a man changes based on the information he gets. When you get to a new level or a better place, your thinking, attitude and dressing change.
God said, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it (Genesis 1:28). Each of this comes with change.
Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours (Genesis 37:3)
Joseph was a young man that has beautiful dreams; he began his life with a coat of many colours just like many people began life with a coat of many colours but now it is a different story of confusion and pain. Most people have beautiful ideas and dream-like Joseph while growing up but suddenly things started changing and their dreams began to fade away like smoke: it became unreal and unrealistic because of situations and circumstances of life.
And it came to pass when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;
And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it. Genesis 37:23-24
Some might even look at those dreams as a fantasy because life has given them a deadly blow and the weather, contrary to them. They shift their eyes away from that dream and look for an alternative life thinking their dream is an illusion and can ever come to pass. There are many people going through challenges that were not our bargain but it just came. Someone might say to Joseph, now you are in prison, how will your dreams come to pass?
There is always a time and an available chance for everyone. It might look insignificant or too tiny to be real but it is Time and chances. The Bible says in the process of time, Pharaoh sent for Joseph. Despite all what Joseph had been through, his time came.
Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh (Genesis 41:14)
Looking at the story of Joseph, it looks as if he was going deeper and deeper into trouble. One might even conclude that the prison was his last bus stop. Don’t forget he was sent there by his boss who was an influential man for an unpardonable offence. Who do you think will bail him out: a dead-end someone might say.
