    For Such a Time As This from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about God’s timing. Too many of us read the Scriptures and feel that God is dated, or out of touch with modern times, when nothing could be further from the truth. He invented time. He created the Sun tha...

    Then the king was exceedingly glad, and commanded that Daniel be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no kind of harm was found on him, because he had trusted in his God. Daniel 6:22 ESVDaniel had spent a long night in a den of lions and the stench of rotted meat and l...

    Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth. Psalms 46:10 WEBIt was another busy day with so much to do, so many bills, so much going on, the pressure and anxiety kept me up most of the night. It seemed like I spent most of my time these days...

Prospering Under Pagans

  • And Pharaoh said to his servants, Can we find a man like this, in whom is the Spirit of God? Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, Since God has shown you all this, there is none so discerning and wise as you are. You shall be over my house, and all my people shall order themselves as you command. Genesis 41:37 ESV

    While serving a prison sentence after he was falsely accused of attempted rape, Joseph was summoned to appear before Pharaoh. Though he was innocent, he had now spent years in prison and it appeared that he would be executed. I am sure all of these thoughts passed through his mind. 'Why else would Pharaoh summon me? They certainly hanged that baker''

    After shaving and changing his clothes, Joseph was brought in before Pharaoh. He probably breathed a sigh of relief when Pharaoh said 'I have had a dream and there is no one who can interpret it'.

    Joseph was used by God to interpret the dream and was then made the one in charge of Egypt. Daniel was used by God and made the one in charge of Babylon (Daniel 2:48). Mordecai was used by God and made the one in charge of Persia (Esther 10:3). Esther became a queen (Esther 2:17).

    All of these people who were slaves, prisoners and exiles were living in a pagan nation that served other gods and idols, yet they prospered because they served God Almighty. God is able to make you shine above the rest. He is able to protect and prosper you no matter what laws they pass. God can make you prosper while under pagans.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, work Your will in my life today. Teach me to hear Your voice and give me the grace to carry it out, in the name of Jesus.
