God Made Sure It Worked Out

I’m a kid trapped in an adult body. I want to climb trees again and enjoy the view from the top. (I used to scare the wits out of my mom.) Now I could scare her and three more generations.

“Age means nothing unless you’re cheese. …Claim the promise. ‘You will come to the grave in full vigor.’ Keep dreaming. Accept new challenges. And don’t even think about taking it easy!” The Word for You Today, October 13, 2018

Six days a week I exercise. “The Plank” is the hardest when I am exercising my core. And push-ups are worse than any other strength-training exercises. I am up to 5-pound weights now. I started with soup cans in July.

Some things you just have to endure – like “The Plank.” But even during those times, God still shows us His favor.

Genesis 39:20-23, “…But there in jail, (21) God was still with Joseph: He reached out in kindness to him; He put him on good terms with the head jailer. (22) The head jailer put Joseph in charge of all the prisoners – he ended up managing the whole operation. (23) The head jailer gave Joseph free rein, never even checked on him, because God was with him; whatever he did God made sure it worked out for the best.” The Message

Look at how God blessed Joseph while he was in jail:

  • God was with him.
  • God was kind to him.
  • God put him on good terms with those in authority.
  • God put him in charge.
  • God made him manager of everything.
  • Joseph had free rein.
  • Joseph worked independently.
  • God made sure everything worked out for the best.

Can you think of a time when God gave you favor? During your school years? While working in an unpleasant job?
