Yet God is With You

"The patriarchs became jealous of Joseph and sold him into Egypt. 
Yet God was with him,"
Acts 7:9

The story of Joseph's life is a familiar one. Mistreated by his brothers, falsely accused by Potiphar's wife, thrown into prison and forgotten. . . it would be easy to wonder where God was when all this was happening to Joseph. "Yet God was with him" through all his trials and tribulations.  God "granted him favor and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and he made him governor over Egypt and all his household" (Acts 7:10). God brought good out of Joseph's hardship, for it was his position in Pharaoh's administration that allowed Joseph to rescue his family from the famine in their land and bring them to Egypt to live.  To those who observed Joseph's circumstances it may not have looked like God was with him, but we can never trust the way things look. We have to trust the truth of God's promise to never leave, nor forsake us. 

No matter what's going on in your life today, no matter how hopeless things look, yet God is with you. Trust Him.
