Hey There, Worshipreneur!
Ever wonder why haters exist in our life? I mean, all of us have them and encounter at the points in our life when we need support the most (ever notice that?).
Today marks the first of the #wedintheword series here on TamikaHall.com and we're looking at the life of Joseph Genesis 37-40. As a quick recap, we know that Joseph was a dreamer, he was favored by his father and received a coat of many colors. Out of jealousy, his brothers (haters) sold him into slavery in Egypt. We know the end of the story, God was with Joseph and he ended up in high position and blessing the very people who hated him.
Let's look at the lessons we can learn from Joseph's haters.
My "go to," sassy outfit is a fabulous tee, pair of jeans and an amazing pair of stilettos (I'm smiling thinking about it right now, lol). Of course I have the fashion details for you below, but today's #WEDINTHEWORD centers around overcoming fear and doubt.
We often talk about putting on the whole armour of God, but we don’t really speak of the story behind it, there is a lot we can learn from it. Apostle Paul wrote Ephesians and was known as a world traveler. His story starts with him being a murderer of Christians, and later one of the greatest teachers of the times. Paul was arrested in Jerusalem after the Jews started a riot because of his presence there. He was accused of telling the Jews to break the law, speaking against the Temple, and defiling the area by bringing the Gentiles (Acts 21:28). This of course wasn’t true because Paul was a Jew (Acts 21:39), he walked with Jesus who was also a Jew and wouldn’t have attacked Him (John 4:9, Matthew 1:1-7, Hebrews 7:14) .
