(35) ALWAYS LOOK FOR THE GOOD IN ADVERSITY.

35. ALWAYS LOOK FOR THE GOOD IN ADVERSITY.
Genesis 39:21-23 – “But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison. And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph’s hand all the prisoners who were in the prison; whatever they did there, it was his doing. The keeper of the prison did not look into anything that was under Joseph’s authority, because the LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD made it prosper.”
Joseph didn’t deserve to be a slave or a prisoner, but that was his reality nevertheless. He dealt with his circumstances exceedingly well and God blessed him. Like Joseph we must stay strong, keep the faith, and never quit doing what is right. Even when we are burdened with problems, there is always good to be thankful for and to motivate us to keep on walking in the light with gratitude.
