DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION – SAK. EST.
And it came to pass after these things that his master’s wife cast longing eyes on Joseph, and she said, “Lie with me.” There is no one greater in this house than I, nor has he kept back anything from me but you, because you are his wife. How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?” Genesis 39: 7, 9
THEME: FAITHFULNESS AND DEVOTION TO GOD
WORDS OF HOPE:
She is a devoted, prayerful, serviceable, loving Christian always looking for avenues to build herself and others in the Lord. Pretty as she is and single, she will not compromise on her Christian principles both at Church, work etc. knowing the pressures that lies ahead. Her life was simply dedicated to Christ as Paul indicates in Gal. 2:20. But the enemy schemed to destroy her by bringing many wolves in sheep clothing called Christian young men and ladies to lure her life into bad company. But the more they pressured her, the more she stood firm in her faith saying NO to all forms of immorality and remaining faithful to the Lord. She remained faithful in purity till her marriage. The example of Joseph can be compared with the Christian who faces daily pressures in the world; the pressure to be corrupt, fornicate, cheat, lie, pursue after worldly pleasures etc. as all these pressures are presented as ways to escape from life’s suffering in order to enjoy pleasure which is temporal (of the world). Like Joseph, Potiphar’s wife would have given him comfort and pleasure for a short time but he resisted this earthly reward for God’s glory. He revered the Lord and was awarded a higher glory than the glory of earthly discern. Don’t compromise on your faith, stand firm in the Lord and He will surely reward you.
• Pray that God will give you grace to say No to earthly pleasures that lead to destruction.
• Pray that you will not find yourself in a situation that will cause you to stumble in the faith.
• Pray for the power of the Spirit daily to walk and live the Christian life.
In the name of Jesus, I receive grace to stand the test of time and not to compromise on my godly principles and values for earthly satisfaction and pleasure in the name of Jesus. Amen. 🙏🏽
