“So Pharaoh said to Joseph, ‘I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt.’” (NIV)
What a life Joseph experienced! Favored by his earthly father; abandoned by his brothers, sold as a slave, falsely accused of assaulting the wife of his boss, thrown into prison, made second in command over Egypt, and finally, the savior of his family. All this happened by the time he was 30 years old!
Through all of these experiences, Joseph maintained a proper attitude, trusting in the Lord. He never became bitter over the brutal treatment, abandonment, imprisonment, and false promises made to him.
God worked and broke the “impossible” circumstances that literally imprisoned Joseph. God favored Joseph.
As Christians who practice the principles of KingdomNomics, we, like Joseph, have been redeemed from every lawless deed so we can proclaim the praises of him who saved us. We are a special people who are zealous to do the good works of the Kingdom.
Each Christian is an instrument of God with a purpose to worship and serve him. God’s people are spread throughout the earth at all levels of society for the purpose of expanding his Kingdom. What a privilege to be granted such a role! Let’s take advantage of the opportunities God gives us to serve.
Today, ask yourself:
Have I found my place in God’s service yet? Regardless of my circumstances, am I maintaining a proper attitude of trust, so God can be free to work through me?
