“But the Lord was with Joseph, and he (though a slave) was a successful and prosperous man; and he
was in the house of his master the Egyptian.” (Genesis 39:2)
I remember when I was having children and a full-time house wife, I would get the most amazing ideas for starting my own business. I would write them down and stash them away so I wouldn’t lose them. Then as my kids started growing up I would look back at those old notes and think to myself, “how in the world am I ever going to be able to do these things?”
Today, I took a healthy stroll down memory lane and couldn’t help but get emotional. After all these years, I can look back and see how God strategically positioned me to receive my hearts desires as I
was busy tending to my family. We serve such a good God!
God has a way of opening doors that no person can shut and it’s all done in His timing.
Even though I was enjoying my time of having newborns, toddlers, and teaching my school age kids to read and write; God was working on my behalf to give me my overflowing portion.
If you are discouraged, or like Joseph, in a place that doesn’t match up to the dreams you’ve had for your life, remember that you are successful and prosperous because God is with you. Joseph was such an amazing example, because during the time he was a slave, God still gave him success and prosperity.
Joseph honorably served his master and he found favor in the eyes of men and with God- while he was a slave! That’s pretty incredible. For those of you that have a dream for owning your own business, don’t get discouraged because it’s on the way! Whatever your dream is, God is working on your behalf because He love you.
You are the apple of Gods eye, and He delights in you! No matter where you are or what you may be facing, your inheritance lays in the palm of Gods hand for you to freely claim. There is no shortage or lack in Heaven, therefore we all can have our hearts desires and will be able to share our journey to encourage!
