Joseph the Hebrew - Part 2A

After writing Part 2, my mind has been banging with many “what if” and “could have” .. thoughts in relation to what Joseph told Potiphar’s wife:

 “Look”, he told her, “my master trusts me with everything in his entire household. No one here has more authority than I do! He has held back nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How could I ever do such a wicked thing? It would be a great sin against God.”

Here are the “banging” thoughts:
·         I must not by all means  betray the trust of anyone.
·         If you have betrayed God’s trust, and you are truly sorry, He will forgive and forget. But generally speaking, this is NOT so with co-human beings. Think about this for a minute.
·         Adam could have told Eve, “God gave us everything in this Garden of Eden except for one thing: Not to eat the fruit of just one tree. So how could we or I for that matter disobey God Almighty. 
·         When King David saw Bathseeba bathing in the nude on the roof of the next building, he could have gotten out of the place or “run out” like Joseph did. 
·         Most of us have gotten into  situations where temptations abound, some of us were able to run away and some got stuck and had hell to pay. 
Further on with Joseph’s story, he was very steadfast in his full 1,000 percent trust in his God: He was thrown into a pit, he was sold as a slave, he was thrown into prison. During all these, Joseph never lost his trust that God will take care of him, or that God probably had a good reason for all these. I do not know how I would have reacted to all Joseph went thru. Joseph’s story is truly an inspiring one for me and I hope for your too. 
All things, (good & not so good things), work for the good of those who love God and for those who are the called. This is what happened to Joseph:  Many bad things happened, but in the end all the good and the bad was for the good of Joseph, for Egypt, the neighboring countries and his entire family. That was Joseph’s purpose while in this planet.
Bear in mind that you and I were created for a purpose. Sooner or later we will discern our purpose. But we have to be connected to the powers that be and need to spend time reading what God has been trying to tell us thru the 66 books in the the Bible. And then listen.
