“My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.” Abraham Lincoln
“When Joseph was taken to Egypt by the Ishmaelite traders, he was purchased by Potiphar, an Egyptian officer. Potiphar was captain of the guard for Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. The LORD was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did as he served in the home of his Egyptian master. Potiphar noticed this and realized that the LORD was with Joseph, giving him success in everything he did. This pleased Potiphar, so he soon made Joseph his personal attendant. He put him in charge of his entire household and everything he owned. From the day Joseph was put in charge of his master’s household and property…
But the LORD was with Joseph in the prison and showed him his faithful love. And the LORD made Joseph a favorite with the prison warden. Before long, the warden put Joseph in charge of all the other prisoners and over everything that happened in the prison. The warden had no more worries, because Joseph took care of everything. The LORD was with him and caused everything he did to succeed.” Genesis 39:1-5,21-23, NLV
Do you judge whether God is with you by whether your circumstances are going well or poorly? Joseph didn’t. God is always with you. God always cares. God has a bigger story for good in play that we often can’t see. That played out in the tough chapters of Bart Millard’s life as well.
If you fully knew that the Lord is with you in every situation, how would your outlook and attitude change.
Decide to remind yourself every day, in every situation, that “God is with me.” Life depends upon God, not us. God has control, not us.
Read the full story of Joseph in Genesis 37 -50. What a biography! It’s an epic story of blitzes, God’s grace and God’s triumphs. Decide to remind yourself every day, in every situation, that “God is with me”. Life depends upon God, not us. God has control, not us.
When dreams die, when people hurt you, when trials hit you…remind yourself that God is with you. He’s writing a larger story that the snapshot you can see at the moment.
