Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt. Potiphar, an Egyptian who was one of Pharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there. The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned Genesis 39:1-4 New International Version
There was a time when I was frustrated and considering giving up on teaching in China. It was very difficult.
However, as time went by there were some students that became interested in Christianity.
Although it was challenging, to say the least, after six months they did accept Christ.
This process was repeated as I each semester the new students repeated the experience.
So, even though it is dirty, noisy, stinky, the people are rude and many times there are no other foreigners to talk with the rewards were great.
The point is, God puts us each where we are to use us in His divine plan of things.
We are not to whine and go about His business niggardly but with joy and love.
Our efforts will be rewarded here and in heaven.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our Sheppard) bless me with a joyful, loving and gracious heart to dutifully obey Your divine guidance in my life to do with gusto the work You have prepared for me to do before I was even born. I sincerely request this in the name of Your obedient son who was followed His duty to You all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
