Read Genesis 41
(Today’s post is submitted by Pastor Greg.)
Joseph’s story is one of rags to riches – a story of a guy who went from a pit to the palace. Joseph constantly sought after, honoured, and devoted himself to God no matter what circumstances surrounded him. Miraculously, Joseph found favour with Pharaoh and became second in command in the most powerful nation in the world at the time.
When you, like Joseph, devote yourself to God, you can expect doors to open in your life. You can have influence with those around you. Whether you are a corporate executive or a stay-at-home-mum, you can make a difference for others. People want what you have when they see the fruit of the spirit in your life. Your voice can bring the right word at the right time to encourage someone. Or, to give Godly advice in a difficult circumstance.
God, I want to know you as Joseph knew you. I pray that you will open doors for me to have influence with the people around me. Turn impossible situations in my life into miracles that will testify to your greatness! Give me influence and a voice in my city that will bring honour to you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
