Devo: Patience like Joseph
- Paraphrasing from the end of Genesis, we find Joseph, the favored son of Jacob, seeing a vision from God of him ruling over his older brothers. This made his brothers jealous and over the course of his younger years Joseph experienced a rough go of it. His brothers wanted to kill him, they ended up selling him into slavery in another country, then Joseph worked for Potiphar, was wrongly accused by Potiphar’s wife of trying to sleep with her, and sentenced to prison. But during all of Joseph’s trials, Genesis reiterates that the Lord was with him. Joseph continued to live for the Lord, and whatever it was that he was doing (working at Potiphar’s house, working in the prison, etc.), he did it to the best of his ability and for the Lord. Ultimately, we read that Joseph became second only to the king in Egypt, powerful and mighty, and ultimately ruling over his brothers just as God told him he would.
- I see this story as a story of exceptional patience and trust in the Lord. Joseph had all these things thrown at him that were completely opposite of what God told him in his vision, yet he worked hard and continued to live for the Lord. I think we can all take something from this story, that no matter where we are in life as it relates to our work, our financial situation, relationships, etc…., we must be patient while living for the Lord.
