With God all things are possible
With God all things are possible. Joseph was strengthened in Egypt because God was his maker. God kept Joseph in all he did because he was faithful to what he believed in. Even when Joseph was thrown in prison, God still favoured him and this result was Joseph being selected before others to be the captain of the prisons favourite inmate. These are situations people would look upon and think things are going bad. Not actually knowing that Joseph was kept safe and God was with him.
Jesus spoke about the strong man having to be bound before his house can be ransacked. Joseph was strong, so all the things which happened to him were not able to defeat him or spoil him. God gave us power to succeed, not to fail, and we fail because we do not take up the mantle most of the time. So many times in the past I allowed people to waste me and defeat me because I did not walk in the true power of Christ, our Lord and Saviour. The Bible says to as many as believed on him, to as many he gave power to become the Sons of God. What Jesus did was set something up which allowed us to execute in this realm whenever we pleased…How many of us actually use it though. When you feel strong and empowered you want to stay there, this is why I know many people are not tapping in to it.
