All was well at the palace. David’s reign was splendid—wasn’t it? But David penned these words that betrayed his screaming conscience.
“My guilt has overwhelmed me like a burden too heavy to bear.”
Joy was gone and life had lost its wonder. Torment was his daily bread. The worst part—God could not be found.
But God, who would not abandon a broken and repentant heart, restored His joy to His beloved David. Once again, the king after God’s own heart walked with a spring in his step.
The Lord sees you
Joseph stood alone when he boldly refused to sin. No one saw…it didn’t matter… God saw! And in God’s timing—justice had its day.
El Roi, The God Who Sees, will always prevail. He never forgets your dreams. He is your expectation, He is your reward and He is your life.
“This is what the LORD says:
’Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for your work will be rewarded,’”
Joseph flourished in the famine and while injustice played its role, he remained steadfast—true to the God of Israel. And God saw—He saw it all!
And one night— Pharaoh dreamed a dream.
No one knew its meaning and God said—“Its time!”
Seventeen years had passed since the dreams of his childhood. He had endured betrayal—scandal—obscurity—and it wasn’t fair. But God, who called Joseph a fruitful vine, remembered his dreams. God, who held Joseph’s life in His hands rolled the stone away. And in the twinkling of an eye, Joseph was catapulted from the prison to the palace.
And entered Joseph into the joy of the Lord, picked up the ruler’s scepter
and fulfilled his place in history!
