Stuck, "From the Pit to the Prison" Day 3

[Gen 39:2, 21, 23 NASB] 2 The LORD was with Joseph, so he became a successful man. And he was in the house of his master, the Egyptian. ... 21 But the LORD was with Joseph and extended kindness to him, and gave him favor in the sight of the chief jailer. ... 23 The chief jailer did not supervise anything under Joseph's charge because the LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD made to prosper.

The goal for us as believers is to have the Presence of God in our lives continually just like Joseph had. To make this happen, we must:

1. Ask God for it- He will give if you simply ask and trust that He will provide it
2. Hunger for it- Realize His Presence is a desperate need that we can't live without
3. Seek Him first- God must be your top priority in life
4. Seek justice, love mercy, walk humbly- This is what our King requires (Micah 6:8)

Remember, success is measured by God, not by man. Live in a way that when you stand before Him in judgment you can hear these words, "Well done good and faithful servant (Matthew 25:21, 23)."

*Life Point* Practice the Presence of the Lord, He wants to be near.
