Hello reader! Happy Sunday and I’m so happy today. I need to thank everyone that supported our launch yesterday on the media. You are amazing and God bless you all. Glad you were able to make it for the part two of ‘When Calamity is a Blessing’ which would still be up every Sunday of this month. Had a busy Saturday and I thought to myself, ‘can’t I just skip this Sunday?’ That would be bad cause it’s the first time I’m promising you that there would be a post up on a particular day. And some people already sent me a message on how they were expecting the part two- enough of the stories. ?Last Sunday we learnt not to envy others, be nice irrespective of how people treat us, the heart of man is wicked and that we need to stand for what’s right so we don’t regret it.
Today we’ll analyze another four crucial lessons from the life of Joseph.
Always trust in God and continue to love Him
I actually didn’t read anywhere in my Bible where I was told Joseph nagged to God or insulted God after he was sold into slavery by His brothers. He still had faith in God and continued to love Him. Do you think that paid him? So what are you going through? You think insulting God is the way out? No, you’re wrong. It could be difficult but we must keep loving God (Read post on Hope Can Never Be Lost Here )
God is so wonderful
Yes! He’s so wonderful and of cause it paid Joseph so much that he didn’t stop trusting and loving God. Joseph found favour in Egypt- his master, Potiphar made him the chief servant over his home and even in prison, he was still made the chief. And here’s the reality, he had this positive attitude and it propelled him. If we do, it would help us as well. No matter what we’re going through we should prophecy God’s love and power!
Always do the right thing.
Who said doing the right thing is a waste of time and energy? Sorry, change that mindset because it isn’t. Every step Joseph took to doing the right thing propelled him to greatness even if he didn’t realize. Let’s view it; he was loving enough to search for his brothers earlier on and he found himself as a servant in Egypt. He was faithful to his master then ended up a chief servant. Joseph refused to lay with his master’s wife then ended up in jail but was still put in charge. He showed concern to some other prisoners and he emerged as a Prime Minister. Amazing! The last point is relevant. How do we see someone in need of help and act like we saw nothing? God wants us to help our brothers and sisters out there. Let’s imagine Joseph didn’t show concern to Pharaoh’s former chief butler and chief baker, this is what would have happened- Everything (restoring of the chief butler and death execution of the chief baker) would have still happened and know one would know of Joseph. When famine hits the land the prisoners would definitely suffer more. We have to be willing to help. KEY- Use the talent God gave you. (I leant something about talent and I’ll be sharing it soon)
Stand by the word of God. Ignoring the perks and favour he would have received from his master’s wife; he said that he can’t commit such evil against God and his master! Somethings are not worth risking. Perhaps if he agreed, he would have been receiving her money and the favour but is that better than being a prime minister and still receiving God’s favour?
I don’t know if you agree with me on this but you could share your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below.
This is what I learnt and I’m sharing with you for now. What did you learn? Won’t you let us know? Tell me what you learnt and it would be included next Sunday alongside your name and picture. Stay tuned to the blog, we got you covered!
Much love for all the support.
