Are you a trustworthy person?

But he refused and said to his master's wife, "Behold, because of me my master has no concern about anything in the house, and he has put everything that he has in my charge."
We live in a sexually saturated culture and society, and temptations are in our faces every single day. So how can you and I prepare to resist sexual temptation?
Let's consider Joseph. You see, Joseph was being pursued by the wife of his boss, Potiphar. The Scripture says she tried to seduce him day after day. But each time she tried, Joseph resisted.
What was it that made Joseph so resolute? Well, for one thing, Joseph valued the explicit and complete trust that had been placed in him by Potiphar.
That trust played a major role in Joseph's ability to resist temptation. And when he resisted the woman's advances, Joseph not only honored God, but he honored his master, their relationship, and the trust that had been given to him.
So let me ask you, "Who has put their trust in you?"
If you are a follower of Christ, God has entrusted you with salvation. If you're married, your spouse has placed trust in you. If you're a parent, your children trust you. And most likely your friends and the people in your church trust you.
So here's the big question: Are you trustworthy like Joseph was trustworthy?
Right now, let God begin to strengthen your spirit and resolve that you might not sin—sexually or otherwise—and break the trust that God and others have put in you.
ARE YOU A TRUSTWORTHY PERSON?
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
