Encouraging Bible verse of the day

Let us look at a brief episode from Genesis 39:1-4:”Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt. Potiphar, an Egyptian who was one of Pharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there. The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned.

We know that Joseph got into serious trouble due to envy of his brothers. However, the Lord was with him even in slavery and this brought him success in the house of Potiphar. This teaches us an important lesson. You might be in difficult circumstances, but if the Lord is with you, you will have success. God does not promise us life without troubles, but He has promised us to be with us in those troubles. So, if you are going through hell today, do not lose your heart for God will take care of you. 

God bless you today.
