Life was looking up.\u00a0 He was the manager in charge of everything.\u00a0 He made the final decisions for work duties, buying and selling and everything else.\u00a0 He was top dog.\u00a0 Yes, Joseph\u2019s life was looking up.\u00a0 He was now in charge of the household of Potiphar, captain of the guard.\u00a0 But temptation was prowling around desiring to take Joseph down. The Bible says that Joseph was \u201cwell-built and handsome,\u201d something Potiphar\u2019s wife noticed.\u00a0 Every day she would attempt to seduce Joseph to come to bed with her.\u00a0 It may be easy to resist a temptation that comes once-in-a-while, but this one was constantly coming at him.\u00a0 He didn\u2019t choose to dwell on it, but when it shows itself that often how difficult to put it away from your mind! You\u2019ve probably had or currently have those temptations which never seem to disappear.\u00a0 They continually nag at your mind.\u00a0 You become weary and think, \u201cMaybe I should give in and get it over with.\u00a0 God apparently doesn\u2019t care enough to take it away.\u201d\u00a0 You convince yourself that it doesn\u2019t matter and are ready to succumb to the temptation.\u00a0 But before you do, let\u2019s look back at Joseph. Joseph\u2019s thoughts were on what God had done.\u00a0 Joseph is hundreds of miles from the Promised Land serving as a slave and would most certainly never see his family again.\u00a0 He could have said, \u201cGod put me in this place.\u00a0 God must not care.\u00a0 Why follow Him?\u201d\u00a0 But, despite the terrible circumstances, Joseph chose to focus on what God had done for him.\u00a0 He knew God was good and saw proof of His goodness.\u00a0 We can see that as well in the death of Christ for us, how He provides for us and the friends around us. Joseph rejected any sin against God.\u00a0 We see Joseph flat out turn down the temptress and later he even runs from her.\u00a0 That couldn\u2019t have made her too happy. He makes a statement that we would all do well to memorize and repeat, \u201cHow then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?\u201d (Genesis 39:9) When you recognize that God is good to you, how you don\u2019t deserve any of the grace He has given and realize that He has spared you by His mercy then, no matter your state in life, you will know God is still good.\u00a0 Then you must say along with Joseph, \u201cHow then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?\u201d\u00a0 May your life and mine reflect our belief that God is good all the time.
