But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.- Genesis 39:21 (KJV)
Down times can the very times where we need to know that the Lord is a “very present help
.” Illness, unemployment, family strife, divorce and a slew of other issues can plague us day by day. At times, we can feel abandoned.
That’s not what God wants us to feel. He does not desire for us to be His forsaken children. He redeemed us for the price of His only begotten Son. Let us not live like those who are without hope as Paul shared with fellow believers through his epistles. We are children of God as promised through His Son.
The next time that you feel down. Look around and see what God has provided for you. Think clearly about what God has taken you through, ups and downs, valleys and mountains. Let your heart be content with all that God has already done for you.
