In the Bible, we read about a person called Joseph who had dreams and promises from God that he would be on the top. God’s promise “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9) is an evergreen promise to His children. But it makes one to wonder why it did not work out for Joseph when his brothers threw him in to the pit and consequently sold him as a slave!

Where was God when Joseph begged his brothers? Where was God when he was sold as a slave? Where was God when he was falsely accused and put in prison by a king? Where was God when people forgot him? Beloved, engrave this in your heart: “God was right there with Joseph in all of these” (Genesis 39:21).  Beloved, sometimes people who hate you can push you into your destiny! As a child of God, be assured of God’s caring and carrying hands constantly present with you.  God is faithful to His word.  One day, God made Joseph to present a solution for the forthcoming famine in Egypt even before the crisis begun.   This made him the Prime Minister of Egypt, the place where he was imprisoned once!

Beloved, God chooses the weak and the humble to display His full glory.   Joseph was a slave in Egypt.  But, God chose Him to display His glory.  Are you rejected and looked down by all? Do you feel orphaned? Is the inability to excel in studies or job putting you in shame every day? Has the rope of addictions to sinful habits put a noose around your neck?  Are you in the pit of mental depression or emotional turmoil?  Today, the Almighty God says, I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you” (Exodus 9:16). God would show His power to raise you to greater heights for His name sake.  Your bruises would vanish the moment He enters into you to lift you high before others. Be of good cheer.
Loving Lord, I thank You for the promises You have given me.  You are faithful to Your word.  I choose to focus on You and Your word.  I know that You will honor me at the right time and right place.  As I wait, help me to meditate on Your power and strength.  You make all things beautiful in its time. Lift me up for the glory of Your Name.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
