God's Presence in Success and Distress

God's Presence in Success and Distress

Despite Joseph's servitude in a land far from home, Egypt, he was not alone. God made his presence indisputable by divinely blessing his work for Potiphar, his master. Through these successful times and promotion God strengthened Joseph's faith such that when temptation came from his master's wife, he responded righteously. But his obedience to God ultimately resulted in his imprisonment and suffering. Despite Joseph's circumstances, Genesis 39 clearly shows that God was present with him, sustaining him, and working for his good. God was active in Joseph's life as he is active in our lives today. This chapter is an encouragement for Christians to acknowledge the many undeserved blessings God has given us, and to look at trials as opportunities for equipping and maturity.
