TEXT: Genesis 39:1-15

DCLM Daily Manna 9 August 2022 Devotional MESSAGE
An African adage says the fury of the flood never seeks to spare any building. It is the owner of the structure who must erect a strong bulwark to resist the raging deluge. Similarly, the devil and his agents in the world are never discouraged from practising their tempting wiles on the Christian, with the goal of bringing them down. It is the believer who must take maximum advantage of God’s grace in him not to cave in.
The woman who invited Joseph to commit sexual immorality with her thought she would succeed in getting him. This is the mindset of her present-day counterpart. But the genuine Christian must not allow himself to be ensnared.

And the only way not to fall is to remain firm and profess uncompromising loyalty to God as Joseph did. You must have a strong spiritual defence against the tide of temptation. You must not negotiate on terms or oath of secrecy with sinful partners if they threaten blackmail.
Joseph’s parents were not at the scene of the attempted seduction in Egypt to serve as counsellors or a check to prevent him from sinning. But, having sat for years at the feet of Jacob, his God-fearing father, learning the ways of God, Joseph was adequately kitted to resist the moves of his master’s wife, ignoring the enormous risks to his life.
This underscores the eternally weighty admonition of the word of God: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). The training Joseph took from his parents fortified him against acting contrary to God. Transient treasures of transgression must not entice us to sin against God.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Honour God with holiness and expect rewards now and hereafter.
