In Genesis 41 we learn a valuable lesson that applies to us today through the life of Joseph and the job that he received from Pharaoh. After years of being cast out by his own family and lied upon which placed him in prison Joseph was recognized for the favor of God that was upon his life. No matter where he went or what he had to go through the Lord always helped him to improve something for someone else because he was not thinking about himself and drowning in his own sorrows.
How easy is it for us to allow Satan to spiritually rob us of our joy when heartaches or troubles come our way? How many people do you know that seem to be drowning in their sorrow instead of seeking God to show them the way out? Have you ever been in a season within your life which you felt would never end? Here is the what the Lord has placed within my spirit this morning to share with you,”In every season there is a reason to deepen our roots with God and a purpose to help others in where we are. For if we only think about ourselves then we are only allowing Satan to spiritually rob us of who we are as a child of God.”
I leave you this morning with this question upon your heart,”Are you praising God in your circumstances or are you missing the whole point of your lesson?”
