    He spoke to them many things in parables, saying, 'Behold, a farmer went out to sow. As he sowed, some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and devoured them. Others fell on rocky ground, where they didn't have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of earth. ...

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.

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (2 Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Thank you Pastor Dion for this devotion today. This is a great reminder for me that no matter what happens in the next year during the election, whoever is put in the white house God, will still take care of us and protect us. Things are getting pretty scary with all the talk of socialism and so many Muslims in office that want to make laws that favor muslims.  With all the babies that are being murdered daily by abortion and even some states allowing late term abortions. So  many people want to take God out of everything and at some point declare christianity illegal. In reading this today you remind me that no matter what happens God is in Control. He can prosper us and take care of us no matter what happens. Father God I thank you for all of your blessings on my family and thank you for Refreshing Hope Ministries. I thank you that you give me peace when there is so much turmoil in the world. In the name of Jesus, my Lord and Savior, Amen!!
