    Joseph said to his brothers, 'I am Joseph! Does my father still live?' His brothers couldn't answer him; for they were terrified at his presence. Joseph said to his brothers, 'Come near to me, please.' They came near. 'He said, I am Joseph, your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. Now don't be grieve...

    Stand in the Gap from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of standing in the gap for our countries, and what that means. I want to begin with a conversation that God had with Abram in Genesis. (Genesis 15:13–16 NASB)  God said to Abram, &ldqu...

    And the LORD said to Gideon, 'With the 300 men who lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hand, and let all the others go every man to his home.' So the people took provisions in their hands, and their trumpets. And he sent all the rest of Israel every man to his tent, but retained...

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.
