Psalm 62:12

King James Version (KJV)

12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.

Thank God for His mercy.  We would I be without it? Mmmm, maybe not in a good place or further behind in my purpose for here on earth.

Mercy is defined as a blessing that is an act of divine favor or compassion, a fortunate circumstance.

Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery because they were jealous and God showed him mercy and gave him favor in the sight of Potiphar. Potiphar  made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.  This is God making what the devil meant for evil for good.  Joseph was well favored.

Joseph was handsome and Potiphar’s wife wanted to lie with him.  Now why does this women who has all that she wants, want to lie with Joseph?  That is another story in itself, I will not go there.  Potiphar’s wife tried to seduce Joseph. He refuses her and runs away.  In his haste, he does not pull his garment from Potiphar’s wife ‘s hand and he leaves behind his garment.  Here is what she did.

16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home. 17 And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me: 18 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out. 19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled. 20 And Joseph’s master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

God again showed Joseph mercy and He gives him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.  What the devil meant for evil, God made it for good.  God set the devil up.  The devil thought Joseph would not succeed and through these adverse circumstances Joseph learned and was being groomed for God’s purpose.

What can one learn from the story of Joseph? No matter what the cost, stand firm for God and He will bless you for doing His will. Also,for being on God’s side, you will be blessed even though the circumstances do not look good.

Be Blessed!

    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked
    hard on. Any recommendations?

      I had to translate the comment submitted. The translation to English is “The big race of his life were to be the 2004 Athens Olympics”.
      I do not think Joseph would be able to compete in the 2004 Athens Olympics. He would be real, real old. Of course I am not God, through Christ all thing is possible. 🙂
