Dailies In His Word

You never know who you will influence when you pass on by them in life and though it may sound cliché life goes by so fast! You never know who you will influence in the place you are in whether it is a good place or tough spot. Live the life God has planted in your life the way He would want. Don't let it get you down!

Joseph was thrown into a pit to be sold to a pharaoh, to be sent to a prison for a crime he never did. (In Genesis chapters 30-40 you can read about it). While he was there he met a man who would eventually be the ones who lead to his being set free and put as number two in the land of Egypt and second only to Pharaoh himself. He would save the family and eventual Hebrew children from famine because of that!

Today I heard of a man who had worked with a group of people, and not seen them in years. Then out of the blue he ran into the person who used to be his boss when he was in a totally different location, this boss was his director of sorts. Still another person he ran into was the wife of the person who had done the hiring interview. All of these people had come back across his path throughout the years. It made me think of the different people in the Bible who Jesus reached out to that went on to tell other people about Him.
Then I thought, and I pondered it a bit… “How is it possible in a world so full of people for other people to even remember us let alone something we said?”
Then I realized it does not matter, the fact is people will remember what we said years from now and we have to think about the fact that our words can help to plant seeds of faith or seeds of failure. I choose faith!
  This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men. Titus 3:8

Heavenly Father, help us to keep and pass on the faith we have in You, in Jesus’ name.
