By Wayne McDonald

Genesis 37:18 And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near to them, they conspired against him to slay him. And they said to each other, behold the dreamer is coming. Let us kill him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, some evil beast has devoured him: and we will see what will become of his dreams.

1Peter 5:8 Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a roaring lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the Lord was with him, and that the Lord made all that he did to prosper in his hand.

And it came to pass from the time that he made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the Lord blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the Lord was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.

“So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God created he him: male and female created them.

And God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all it’s vast resources in the service of God and man] and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth.”You have been created in the God class act, think, and talk like it. exercise your authority.
