Who is WITH you?

 

Who is WITH you?

 

Genesis 39:2: The LORD was with Joseph and blessed him greatly as he served in the home of his Egyptian master.

 

Joseph in the Book of Genesis made some big mistakes as a boy. Number one, his father loved him more than his other brothers, and Joseph let everyone know about it. He even wore a special coat, showing how important he was. Joseph also dreamed great dreams that made him look like a god and his brothers like slaves. That just made everyone angry. Eventually, Joseph’s brothers came up with a plot and sold Joseph into slavery.

 

As you read the rest of the story of Joseph, you’ll be amazed. Every time someone threw a curve to Joseph and got him into trouble, Joseph seemed to make the most of it. He ended up on top even though it seemed everyone was trying to put him down.

           

Why did this happen? The Bible reveals one basic reason: God was with him.

 

Do you sense that God is with you? How can you tell? Several ways. One, you’ll defeat temptation more than you’ll give in to it. Two, you’ll experience joy and peace in your heart. Three, you’ll see some success in life, and you’ll know it’s not just because of you. It’s because God opened the door and led you through.

 

If you’re a Christian, God is with you. He will lead, help and encourage you every step of the way. So trust him.

 

Prayer: Father, I praise you that you’re with me. Keep me thinking about it. Amen.
