Acts 7:9 to 10 (NIV) ~ because the patriarchs were jealous of Joseph, they sold him as a slave into Egypt. But God was with him and rescued him from all his troubles.

Here, tucked away in the middle of theses amazing verses is this powerful statement, “But God was with him.” It then goes on to say, “…and rescued him from all his troubles.” Even when his brothers hated him and threatened to kill him, even when they sold him into slavery, even when Joseph was wrongly accused of something and put in prison, even when he wore the neck, leg and hand shackles, God was with him.

No matter how badly people treated Joseph, God was with him.

No matter how low Joseph must have felt, God was with him.

No matter how disappointed Joseph felt, God was with him.

No matter how much he felt as if people had let him down, God was with him.

When all you have is God, you have everything you need to rescue you and start again. ELOHIM ADONI will help you; He will lift you up and bless you. The Bible says in 2 Peter 2:9 (NIV), “The Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials.” God never left Joseph in prison, but lifted him up, far above all his troubles, and not only that, but He also brought about a great reconciliation between Joseph and his family. And finally, to top it all, he blessed Joseph with peace, power and prosperity.

No matter how badly people treat you, know that God is with you.

No matter how low you feel, know that God is with you.

No matter how disappointed you may feel over something, know that God is with you.

No matter much people let you down, God never will, because He is with you.

God will bring you through every trial stronger, more blessed and with a greater faith to keep walking from one victory to another, because He is with you.

My friend, whatever you face today, whatever circumstances you may find yourself in, know this: God is with you, and he will rescue you from all your troubles. When you walk hand-in-hand with Jesus Christ, he has promised never to leave you nor forsake you, so we can say with confidence, the Lord is my helper. God is with me wherever I go and will bring me victory over every trial, because He, ELOHIM ADONI, is with me and if God be for me then who can stand against me? Be encouraged today in knowing that God is with us to give us victory and to rescue us from every trial, and give us His peace, power and prosperity.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
