Genesis 50:19-20 “But Joseph said to them (his brothers), ‘Don't be afraid.  Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.’” (NIV) 

 

   Joseph’s life is an amazing testimony of forgiveness.  He had so many reasons to be bitter, revengeful, slothful, and rebellious, yet he forgave, performed his best under poor situations, made no effort to get even, and went the extra mile to finish well.  What an example of Godly living.  What are some practical ways in Christ that help you respond correctly to bad conditions?  One way is to dwell on what God is doing and not on what has happened to you.  How about you.  How do you respond in God’s way instead of the flesh?

God will always give strength to you to set your heart to do the thing at the right time.HE gives power to those who are weak in their own strength.

I find when I start my day , seeing that day as a day I’m here to serve and be a worker of the kingdom, it produces the direction I’m moving. Knowing WHY I’m here helps me to know WHAT I’m doing. Am I filling my day with personal pleasure seeking ( entertaining sports,money,worldly goods,personal comfort,socializing), or am I consumed with God and his purpose ( the lost, sanctification,desiring purity,Gods will, evangelizing, and winning souls to Christ) !

In human nature without Christ it is normal to exalt themselves and being proud to what they are doing and even some Christian does without realizing what their doing.!As we received Jesus as our Lord and Savior we changed our views at it is written in John 15:5 that apart from God we can do nothing.and as we walk with Christ everything we do whether we eat or drink given God a glory.Genuine Christian know once we received Christ it's not about us anymore,it's all about Jesus and His purpose in our life.His empowered us with His glory and strength.🙏🙏🙏

Ezekiel 36:26 says I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. God will put a pure heart in you when you are called by the Father and Jesus will see that pure heart and you shall be saved from your heart of stone.
