SCRIPTURE: Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh. Genesis 41:14.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you are not limited in your mind, you cannot be limited in life.

The Scripture is filled with examples of great people who succeeded in life through the positive engagement of their minds. They won and ruled their world beginning from their minds. Their positive mind-set affected their lifestyles. And it is very important to learn from them.

Joseph was a good example of such persons.
What can we learn from the life of Joseph?

Please take note of the following points about the positive mind-set of Joseph.

i. Joseph was in prison, but he kept on interpreting other peoples’ dreams because he believed in his own dreams and their interpretations.
If Joseph did not believe in his own dreams and their interpretations, he wouldn’t have interpreted other people’s dreams.

He seemed to have told himself, “Even though I am in prison now, the palace is my place. I believe that my dream will come to pass.”

You must believe in yourself and in your dreams before you can impact other people.

ii. Though in prison, Joseph did not only keep prison clothes, he also kept palace clothes. (Genesis 41:14).
When Pharaoh sent for him, he changed the prison clothes on him to the palace clothes he had kept by himself. He seemed to have said to the palace clothes, “This is the day I had been keeping you for. I knew I would leave this prison one day. I knew I would go to the palace, and I knew I would need you. This is why I have been keeping you”

And he wore the palace clothes. The prison did not limit his mind. He wore the palace clothes and stepped majestically into the palace and stood before Pharaoh.

You see, if you are not limited in your mind, you cannot be limited in life.

Though Joseph’s body was in a physical prison, his mind was not in prison. He did not wait for his future to happen to him; rather, he happened to his future.

This is the lesson to learn: prepare for your future before it arrives. It does not matter where you are now, you can prepare for the future before it arrives.

REMEMBER THIS: If you are not limited in your mind, you cannot be limited in life.


  1. Ask God for a fresh baptism of a positive mind-set like Joseph.
  2. Believe God’s Word about your life and live according to the Word, and not according to your present circumstances.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive a fresh baptism of positive mind-set. I break every negative and limiting mind-set Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
