The gift of God's presence in the life of a believer

“And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? But the Lord was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.” Genesis 39:2, 9, 21 KJV https://www.bible.com/1/gen.39.2,9,21.kjv

The gift of God's presence in the life of a believer

God’s presence in one’s life and doings is the only thing a person needs because with it, you thrive wherever you find yourself. And so at all times it is important that we are constantly working towards pleasing God, living a life of holiness, discovering him in the meditation on His word and in a relationship with the Holy Spirit. Like Joseph today, it must not be traded for anything, whether the assurance of pleasure or the threat of sorrow. Because no matter the situation, God is a way maker. The Bible says that when a man’s way pleases God, even his enemies will be at peace with him. The psalmist says “The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Psalm 118:6. If there is the choice of only one thing then choose God’s pleasure as that is intact EVERYTHING that you need… Glory!!!

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for your love and your consistent offer of a relationship with you. I choose you Lord, please grant me the grace to live according to your will in Jesus name 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
