Joseph passed through alot in life. It all started as a result of his dream which led to him being put into a PIT by his brothers. His brothers then sold him to the TRADERS and the same TRADERS sold Joseph to the captain of Pharoahs guard who’s name was potiphar.

Despite all Joseph went through, God still remained faithful. When Joseph was sold to Potiphar, he was made to rule over Potiphar’s house except only deciding what to eat. This young man had an impeccable integrity but unknown to him didn’t know that Potiphar’s wife would make advances by soliciting him into having intercourse with her. However Joseph was loyal both to God and his Master (Potiphar) whilst potiphar’s wife was disloyal. Moreover she forgot that she was married and had a covenant with her husband. She broke her matrimony vows by lusting after Joseph. In the process of Joseph resisting to lie with her, he left his cloak behind. Potiphar’s wife become aggressive and came up with a vindictive plan by telling lies against Joseph which in essence was not true. Joseph was then sent to prison for the sin he didn’t commit.

Joseph went to prison for not compromising to sin. He feared God and saw sin as wickedness! He was simply reflecting God’s character by living right according to God’s standard. He didn’t care whether he will lose the Job!!! All he cared for was to live right for God. Bringing it down to our society, many of us would have consented just to keep the job. Majority of us will be thinking of, how will I pay my bills if they decide to sack me? Joseph had integrity and each one of us should act like him. Life is a choice and what you choose will determine your end in life. Joseph had to pay a price for living right and the Lord was with him despite the accusation.

Beloved have you been treated harshly or unfairly?

Beloved have you been treated harshly or unfairly? Have they accused you for something you didn’t do? Don’t worry, God is on your side and He will not leave you nor forsake you. Yes sometimes the battles we face may look so strong that you wonder if you will ever come out of it. Joseph was patient and kept trusting the Lord and he believed that one day all this affliction will come to an end. Trails are also to test our faith to see if we can endure. If Joseph didn’t endure and kept complaining, by now it will be a different story. Even in the midst of storms, joseph rose to a position of prominence in the house of potiphar. My brothers and sisters, Joseph story is an encouraging story. Whatever we are going through today, let us be encouraged to keep holding onto God as Joseph did until our delieverance comes. Trials are meant to strengthen us and not break us. God is merciful and He will show himself strong in your case. Hold onto God and don’t give up!

Shalom!
