One of the mistakes that some people
make is to think that their past is better than their future. The Israelites who were slaves in Egypt fell into this category. Their desire was on Joseph, their brother who was a governor in the land. As Joseph died, the people began to think that their past was better than their future. When Moses inherited the mantle to lead them out of Egypt, they transferred same aggression to him. They murmured over everything; forgot the faithfulness of God easily and preferred to be slaves to eat free food rather than taking responsibility to work and secure a brighter future.
Unlike his brethren, Joseph dreamt and saw himself in the palace before and during his prison experience. Even when he attained the exalted position
in Egypt, he never lost sight of the Promise Land as he took an oath with them never to leave his bones when they would exit Egypt – Genesis 50:24-25. The more you see positively into the future, the brighter your future will become. See Glorious Open Doors.
