“Now Joseph was well-built and handsome, and after a while his master’s wife took notice of Joseph and said, “Come to bed with me!”  But he refused. “With me in charge,” he told her, “my master does not concern himself with anything in the house; everything he owns he has entrusted to my care. No one is greater in this house than I am. My master has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” And though she spoke to Joseph day after day, he refused to go to bed with her or even be with her. Genesis 39:6‭-‬10 NIV

One fundamental truth every follower of Christ must know and always remember is that it’s not only God that is concerned about us, Satan as well is also interested in us. However, the interest of Satan is for our downfall. His desire always is to have us, sift us like wheat, strip us of the presence of God and render us useless, defeated and unfulfilled in life.

When Satan could not overcome Joseph with the troubles and tribulations of the world, he decided to get at him through pleasures with which he has ruined many lives more than the former. But Joseph by the grace of God was able to resist the Devil and escape his snares.

You also can overcome whatever scheme employed by the Devil to throw you down from the platform of grace upon which you stand. Your daily victory will come when you set a clear boundary wherever you find yourself, know that whatever honour or attainment you have today is only a foretaste of the ultimate glory God is bring you into and always know that every evil, cheating on anyone, robbery you commit is an act of wickedness against God. May the Lord God arm you with sufficient grace to be sensitive to be aware of every snare secretly laid on your paths for your downfall in Jesus name. Good morning.

Your brother,
