I recently was reading the account of Joseph’s life in Genesis. At one point he was falsely accused by Potiphar’s wife. Potiphar, the captain of Pharaoh’s guard, had Joseph imprisoned. One verse, in particular, stood out to me.
Genesis 29:21 But the Lord was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
Joseph experienced much hardship, from being sold by his own brothers and taken to Egypt in the first place to the circumstance of his being in prison. Yet, the Lord met him there.
The Lord was with him, showed him steadfast love, and gave him favor. He does the same thing in our lives when we look to him in faith. Even in the darkest moments of our lives, the Lord is with us and does not forsake us.
Do you have a need? Are you in a troubling circumstance? The Lord is able!
