2012 禁食日记 – 第23天： “神同在” 2012 Fasting Diary – Day 23: “God’s presence”
“2 约瑟住在他主人埃及人的家中，耶和华与他同在，他就百事顺利。 3 他主人见耶和华与他同在，又见耶和华使他手里所办的尽都顺利”

Day 23 (29/08/12)
“2 The Lord was with Joseph and he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. 3 When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did”
~ Gen 39:2-3 ~
The Bible clearly shows us the result of having the presence of God: Success in everything! And not only that, people can “see” God is with you!
This was one thing very obvious about Joseph’s life, but success in everything does not mean therefore your life is very comfortable and without any worries or troubles!
In actual fact, Joseph went through a lot of sufferings, but in the midst of his sufferings, jobs handed to him would be completed with great success. The main reason was God was with him. However, there is always a reason as to why God is with someone!
In Joseph’s most difficult moments, he would still be looking to God, trusting Him, not doubting or grumbling, and he did not sin against God… Therefore, let us not just envy or desire his “success in everything” as the Lord was with him, let us first learn his life and endurance…
