Today’s exhortation – He will show up!
In today’s society, there’s a huge agenda to attack what’s right and promote what’s wrong. Our children get laughed at for promoting chastity and we get ostracised for holding onto the gospel truths. More often that not, we get penalised for doing what is right! Why does God allow this to happen to us? Why did God let Joseph get thrown into prison when he did the right thing by not sleeping with his master’s wife? Joseph isn’t the only in the bible who was penalised for doing the right thing. Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den for his efforts and his friends were thrown into a burning furnace for their’s too. However, even though God didn’t stop their punishments, He showed up!
He showed up in the lions den and shut the mouths of the lion; He showed up in the fire so that Daniel’s friends were not burnt and He showed up in the prison where Joseph was. The bible says, “The Lord was with him; He showed him kindness and granted him favour in the eyes of the prison warden. The warden paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care, because The Lord was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did.” (Genesis 39:21, 23). This should encourage us to do what’s right because no matter what happens, our God will show up. In the fire or in prison, He’ll show up! Amen!
