Falsely Accused!

Have you ever been accused of something that you did not do? Then you know the feeling when you are doing the right thing and all of sudden you find yourself in the midst of a difficult situation. Maybe you are reeling from wondering how you got there. Take heart God is in the midst of this mess.

Joseph was a young man who was holy and loved God with all of his heart. However Potiphar's wife was rebuffed by Joseph as she attempted to seduce him. Joseph resisted her enticements, and left his garment with her as he was fleeing. Some commentators believe that she seized his garment in order to accuse him of wrongdoing. Potiphar's wife may have seized his garment but she could not seize his destiny. If you are interested in reading the full account you can read Genesis chapter 39. Because Joseph was falsely accused he was taken to prison, but God is not limited by prisons or perplexing situations. If you have been falsely accused, understand that God will vindicate you in due time (I Peter 5:6).
