Christian Devotional – November 13, 2018

The pressure is on, so how will you answer the difficult questions? Joseph has been hurried from the prison, told to get presentable and led before Pharaoh himself. Pharaoh tells Joseph why he has been sent for and Joseph has that moment to decide how to respond. Read Genesis 41:14-16

Joseph then answered Pharaoh, saying, “It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh a favorable answer.”
Genesis 41:16 NASB

Even with all the glory and splendor of Pharaoh’s court and the excitement of being out of prison, Joseph continues to give glory to God for being the true one who gives answers. Just like he has done throughout his life.

Some people think that if they just had their big break or some other grand opportunity, then they would give some amazing testimony for God. The truth is that in that moment, you will give the same answer you have given in all the small opportunities leading up to that one.

How you answer questions about God and His involvement and influence in your life today will ultimately show how you answer the question later when the pressure is really on. Do you give God credit for the things that God does in your life today? If you can’t do it today, don’t kid yourself into thinking you would do it when the stage is bigger. Start by praising and acknowledging Him where you are today.
