The Power Of God’s Presence – Acts 7:1-21

From my reading in Acts 7:1-21 in the One Year New Testament.

As Steven stood trial he shared highlights of the Old Testament.

One interesting thing that he said was a about Joseph,

“These patriarchs were jealous of their brother Joseph, and they sold him to be a slave in Egypt. But God was with him and rescued him from all his troubles.” Acts 7:9–10a

Joseph was a recipient of God’s grace and rescue.

God was with him. 

God’s presence makes all the difference. He can comfort those in the middle of their troubles and deliver people from their troubles.

This is not a promise that God will remove all trouble from our lives.

God’s presence is always available to those who seek him. Sometimes we can not sense or feel his presence, but he is still there.

God is with those who draw near to him through Jesus.

In Joseph’s case God’s powerful presence and blessing caused him to be promoted from prison to prince.

Whatever you are going through don’t go through it alone. Go through it with God!
