Maybe a few years back in your “teen years” you heard a parent or good friend give you fashion advice about the incredibly rad outfit you had adorned for a night out with friends. I, too, have policed some overly epic creations my daughter has thought up to wear on occasion. However, I wonder why no one gave Joseph a heads up when he wore that royal coat of many colors to go spy on his not so endearing brothers.
He wore it because it was a prophetic gift from his loving father. It was the gift of the birthright in which authority, influence, and honor would follow. Joseph had freedom to dream because he remained faithful to God and his call on Josephs life.
If you are a child of God then, you too, are a firstborn child with a birthright (Hebrews 12:23) He chose you! Not because you were great in your own eyes, but because you are great in his eyes. We are no longer to be in bondage to our past, but we are free to be women of influence. You are worthy of the royal robe because it was a gift from your Heavenly Father. He created you to have influence on this world that we call home.
Joseph became a man of great influence throughout his journey because he was forgiving, humble, wise, and faithful. He was not self reliant…he was God reliant and
…He chose to wear the coat.
