A Launching Pad



“But the Lord was with Joseph, and he [though a slave] was a successful and prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.”
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭39:2‬ ‭AMP‬‬

“There are many times where the lowest points in your life are actually launching pads to God’s greatest promotion in your life. It was so for Joseph! Let’s rewind the tape and observe the fingerprints of the Lord through the ups and downs of Joseph’s life. If Joseph had not been betrayed by his brothers, he would not have been sold as a slave. If he had not been sold as a slave, he would not have been in Potiphar’s house. If he was not in Potiphar’s house, he would not have been thrown into an Egyptian prison meant specifically for the king’s prisoners. If he was not in that specific prison, he would not have interpreted the dreams of Pharaoh’s officers. If he had not interpreted their dreams, he would not have been summoned to interpret Pharaoh’s dream two years later. If he had not interpreted Pharaoh’s dream, Pharaoh would not have promoted Joseph to become his prime minister over the entire Egyptian empire!”


“God’s presence with Joseph and His unmerited favor caused Joseph to be promoted from the pit to the palace, from the dunghill to Capitol Hill, from the outhouse to the White House. Stop looking at your circumstances and stop allowing them to discourage you. The same Lord who was with Joseph is with you right now. You cannot fail! You can expect to see success beyond your present circumstances!”


“For though the righteous one may fall seven times, he gets up again, but the wicked stumble in adversity.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭24:16‬ ‭TLV‬‬


The above is an excerpt From: Joseph Princes book. “100 Days Of Favor.”

No matter what you might be going through right now, no matter how bad things may look don't give up and quite on God. It took 15 years for Joseph to finally see what God had in store for him. Just imagine what all Joseph would have given up if he'd quite prematurely. God can take any circumstance and turn it around in your favor. Actually that's what he wants to do if you'll let him.

Have a blessed day!

P.s. I highly recommend Joseph Princes books Destined To Reign and Unmerited Favor. These are excellent books for anyone that is wanting to learn more about Jesus and grow in their walk with Christ. The above is just a small sample of the wisdom that flows from those books.
