So Potiphar left everything he had in Joseph’s care; … and after a while his master’s wife took notice of Joseph and said, “come to bed with me!”  But he refused.  … When his master heard the story his wife told him, saying, ‘this is how your slave treated me,’ …Joseph’s master took him and put him in prison,…” Genesis 39:6-9, 19-20 NIV

The trials of our faith as true followers of Christ come in various ways and take different dimensions from person to person. Whichever way and whatever time your own take, do not consider it as something strange to you. Rather, see it as God’s mean of testing your commitment, character and your love for Him.

No matter the pain, the humiliation, opposition or rejection that may come at the time of your trials and distress, never see it as opportunity or excuse to compromise your allegiance to Jesus. But as an occasion to demonstrate your unflinching trust and unshakable confidence in God.

Despite the trials, if you remain steadfast in your faith and hope in God, the Lord will surely return to you in due time to vindicate you at last. His hand shall lift you out of your miry clay of penury and despondency. He will not abandon nor forsake you in the dungeon, He will surely remember you and His purpose for your life, in due time He will surely lift you up and bring you to the place of divine prominence with a new song in your mouth. Don’t ever give up, the battle will soon be over and you will yet praise Him! Good morning and do have a refreshing weekend.

Your brother,
