    Do Not Be Dismayed from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about becoming “Dismayed.” To be dismayed means “to be downcast, disappointed, disheartened, filled with terror.” It replaces hope and will lead you to a dark place. We become ineffective and...

    Count it all joy, my brothers, when you fall into various temptations, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. Let endurance have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2 WEBMy Dad was born during the great depression in the early 1930s...

Wrongfully Accused

  • Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, the place where the king's prisoners were bound, and he was there in custody. But Yahweh was with Joseph, and showed kindness to him, and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison. Gen. 39:20 WEB

    Joseph was his father's favorite son and though he had done nothing wrong, he was sold into slavery by his older brothers, who were jealous of him. As if being a slave was not bad enough, when he refused to sleep with his master's wife, she falsely accused him of rape and had him thrown into prison.

    Joseph stayed positive during all of this, and soon he was put in charge of the rest of the prisoners. In time, he was released out of prison and became the second-in-command of Egypt. Whatever Joseph did, God made it succeed. Was Joseph in God's perfect will while in prison? Strangely enough, yes. In the end, it could not have worked out any better.

    No matter where you are today, or how dark it looks, or how you got there, if you submit yourself to God and keep a positive attitude, it will work out for the best. The wrongs in your life will be made right. Like Joseph, when you have the chance to finally get even, don't. Forgive them, let them go, and you can enjoy the new wonderful life God has given you instead. God can turn the bad, into the good and sometimes it can happen overnight.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for the life that You have given me. Breathe into my life and give me encouragement today. Lead me and help me make the right decisions. May Your will be done in my life, and not mine. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

The story of Joseph's life is very special. Do you really think he never said to God; "I do not understand how this could happen?" I believe he did. We may not understand all that we see, but the Bible says God's words do not come back to Him void. We just have to keep on believeing.
