“God was with Joseph” Genesis 39:2
Dear Lord, thank you that you are with me through your Spirit. Thank you God that I don’t need to fear the schemes of the enemy no matter how bad things might look. I can rest in the assurance that you are on your throne, but you are also with me. You have given me your Spirit. You have given me your love. And you have given me your forgiveness. I am safe from the intent of the enemy to destroy my blessings and kill me. He can hurt me, but he can’t have me and he can’t have my blessing. What you have promised me you will be faithful to give to me! Nothing can separate me from you. Nothing can thwart the plans you have for me.
Like Joseph, I feel so trapped by my circumstances, God. I feel helpless to succeed because of the enemy’s plans to kill me. But Lord, you have reminded me that you are so faithful. In the midst of my trials and oppression you are there with me and you will bless me even if I’m in slavery or prison. So often my body feels like a prison, God. It has kept me from so much. But Lord, you have given me charge over my body. You have blessed me with your Spirit to resist sin and follow you in the path of righteousness.
Help me God to always see your plans and blessings for me so that I can call on them. I want to always be reminded that you are with me and that your plans cannot be thwarted. Nothing the enemy can do can keep me from your blessing and your promises for me. Nothing.
I have nothing to fear. Though the nations rage and tremble. Though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea. You are with me, God of Jacob. (Psalm 46) You are my shelter and my safe place. You are my life and my blessing. You are my king and my savior and my beloved one. You are my heart and my soul. And I am yours. I will not fear. Amen.
