July 21, 2023

Joseph was sold and bought by an Egyptian, Potiphar, who was captain of Pharaoh’s guard and brought into his house as a servant. Potiphar saw that God favored him and put him in charge of his household; Joseph helped prosper him through God’s favor. He must have been handsome because Potiphar’s wife was drawn to him and practically begged him to lay with her. Joseph kindly rejected her and explained his loyalty to her husband. She cornered him alone with no other servants in the house and grabbed hold of his garment, and he fled, leaving her holding it. Remember, the devil seems to know when God has a purpose for you and will send tempters to taunt you. Sometimes, when you reject his advances, he accuses you of that crime even though you did nothing wrong. The enemy used Potiphar’s wife as his mouthpiece, and Joseph ended up in prison. He still had God’s favor in prison and was placed in charge. 

What happened to Joseph can and has happened to others. We are seeing it increasingly because of the turmoil worldwide, especially in the United States. A prime example is our former president; the crimes they’ve accused him of perpetrating are the very crimes they are guilty of committing. Victory is in the hands of God; He will win, and every evil being will get flushed into hell; you can count on it!

But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison. Genesis 39:21
