Theme For Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional May 29 2023 – From the Pit to the Palace
A pit is a ditch, a trap, or a snare. It refers to destruction. Satan always wants to bring us into the pit.
Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers. They actually threw him into a pit and intended to leave him there to die, but God had other plans. Joseph ended up being sold into slavery in Egypt, where he was thrown in prison for refusing to compromise his integrity. Yet everywhere Joseph went, God gave him favor. Ultimately, Joseph was promoted to the palace, second in command to Pharaoh.
How did Joseph get from the pit to the palace? I believe it was by remaining positive, refusing to be bitter, and choosing to boldly trust God. Even though it looked like he was defeated on many occasions, he refused to give up on trusting God.
Joseph had a right attitude. He knew God was in control even when it looked like the circumstances of his life were spinning out of control. The same is true in your life. If you’ll keep a positive attitude, knowing that God is in control, He can take you from the pit to the palace in ways you never imagined.
Prayer of the Day: Father, help me trust You like Joseph did, to remain positive, and know that You can take me from the pit to the palace. Guide me to have the right attitude and to know that You are in control, even when things feel out of my control, amen.
