Stuck, "From the Pit to the Prison" Day 2

[Genesis 39:2, 21, 23 ESV] 2 The LORD was with Joseph, and he became a successful man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master. ... 21 But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison. ... 23 The keeper of the prison paid no attention to anything that was in Joseph's charge, because the LORD was with him. And whatever he did, the LORD made it succeed.

Through all of Joseph's struggles and trials the fact remained that the LORD was WITH him. Christ Jesus suffered, and we will too as we walk in His divine will and purpose (1 Peter 2:19-23). Don't be fooled by prosperity theologians and the lies that they spew that believers will never have problems. If things are difficult in your life, God is probably in it to refine, guide, and grow you.

In these times of difficulty, remain focused on the process of God's development in your character. When He starts you at point A and promises to get you to point B, it is rarely a straight line. Even though He will often take you through nearly every other letter in the alphabet, remember that He is shaping you for your future with Him, and He is always WITH you in the process!

*Life Point* If Christ is my Savior, He is always WITH me.
