The Lord is with you everywhere you go
Genesis 39:1-6, 20-23
Key Text: “And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.” Genesis 39:2 (KJV)
The story of Joseph which became an encouragement for everyone that desire to live a righteous life amidst persecution is based on the fact that the Lord was with him everywhere he went.
His story brings to limelight that even when the world dispossesses a righteous man of all his earthly entitlements and possession, one thing they cannot take away is God’s presence as long as the righteous man remains committed to living a righteous life.
Irrespective of what has been taken away from you as a result of your holy living, be rest assured that the Lord is with you. Where they have deceitfully put you in prison, or demote you, have the assurance that as long as you do not deny your faith in the Lord; the Lord is with you and He will cause all that you do to prosper.
However, it takes absolute faith in Christ to believe that the Lord has not forsaken you especially during trying times.
Reflection For the Day: God has promised never to leave nor forsake you as long as you remain in Him.
