Joseph was a man who had the favor of God on his life even though there were times when it didn’t look like it. Favor isn’t always fun; it isn’t the absence of challenges. It is God’s presence in the middle of your challenges.
Jacob loved Joseph more than any of his other children because Joseph had been born to him in his old age. So one day Jacob had a special gift made for Joseph—a beautiful robe. 4 But his brothers hated Joseph because their father loved him more than the rest of them. They couldn’t say a kind word to him.
You are your heavenly father’s favorite. You don’t have to do anything to make him love you. You can’t do anything to make Him stop loving you. His love chases you down until you’re found.
