Topic: Prove Yourself Trustworthy [08/09/2016]
And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand. And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand. Genesis 39:3-4. Read: Gen 39:2-6
To be trustworthy is to be dependable and reliable. For God Almighty to trust you, you must prove yourself worthy of His trust. Bible says in 2 Tim 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God. Until you prove yourself to God through your studious life, He will not reveal His secret to you. It's not just enough to prove yourself to God, it's also important to prove yourself trustworthy before men. Men cannot commit into your hands anything until you prove to them that's you are trusted. You must be tested and only when you pass such test before you can be approved.
In a strange land, Joseph proved himself trustworthy to his master and he obtained favour with him. His master committed all things in his hand and all things prospered in his hands. In your place of work, community, have you proven
yourself worthy? Can anyone trust you? Note that, it was God's presence with Joseph that made him trustworthy. God presence gives grace to be trustworthy and His presence cannot go or be with you when you've not given your life to Jesus.
* Be trustworthy before God and man.
