Excellent article! I am very pleased to see you work in the deaf community, as my father is deaf.

This opened my eyes to improve my work ethic, and to act like Joseph. I think it is easy to say, “My boss is a jerk, so I’m going to work less,” etc. Thankfully, my boss is a Christian. My supervisor is on the rough side, but manageable! Praise be to God for Joseph’s example, and if this situation ever occurs to me, I pray to have his character so that the glory of God may be spread.

Look forward to your other articles, brother 🙂 God Bless!

i dont know what to think about it. i will read it entirely soon, but my issue is that there are people who hate me at work. there are aristocrats that hate me too. i feel i dont belong. im a minority with a sense of style and creativity, and i feel these people dont really respect that from a busser. especially because i am good looking and work gracefully as if i am blessed. i feel they hate everything that is of God, and that is what i am apart of.
Yet i know i may sound egotistical but i am trying not to be. i just feel i dont belong and i need to get a new job, but for the time being i have to put up with my job. and now my boss is begining to harass me…other jobs my bosses dont really harass me. but now hes begining to say i have a bad attitude which no job has ever told me. the only time i had a bad attitude which was not towards him but simply the situation i feel i was put in was today. he says the other coworkers say i have a bad attitude which i find hard to beleive. i guess i should just try to be better and im taking a hard blow. but im more angry at that he keeps pointing out issues. im working hard and he keeps saying im not working hard enough…but the fact that he keeps pointing it out while im trying to work hard messes me up a little, and i could only do but so much…im working the best i can and it seems he doesnt understand im doing the best i can. my attitude is just anger at the harrassment today. no other times…anyone else i have shown attitude towards is because they keep trying to do my job, and i just keep asking them nicely to not do it. i tell them “its ok i got” with out attitude…its frustrating…he’s letting them do my job and saying im not working hard enough…i dont look at it as God, but more like the devil trying to always mess with me…i want peace but i cant have it. i come in with a positive attitude to work, and all i get is messed with. how is this a plan of God. it seems more like a plan of the devil…so i dont know…thank you for this post. i will read it more soon. thank you and God bless.

Great article. Thank you for the encouragement. I’m being micromanaged by someone I’m trying to help. It’s very frustrating, and I want to just leave the situation (and I could), but I’m not sure that’s what God wants me to do. I want to obey God, and hopefully help this person draw closer to Him. Thanks again for the encouragement. If anyone would like to pray for the family I’m trying too help, I’d appreciate it, and please pray that I’ll have strength, patience, and discernment. Thank you. Praying for everyone dealing with this type of situation.

Dear BJRivera, I believe I am able to relate to your situation as I experienced it myself around a year an a half ago. It is hard to find contentment and happiness when your job situation does not promote it. I think this article is very helpful in pointing out the timeless truths in the Joseph narrative.

Please pray for me I am having a lot of stress at work

Jack Wellman September 29, 2019 at 4:54 pm

I will pray for you Marie. God uses bad for good (Gen 50:20). I know we can trust Him with all this.

I am facing a situation with my boss where I am working for him for 1 year. He shows partiality and I try to forgive him every time. He is sarcastic and tries to push me down every time. Help me.

Jack Wellman January 14, 2020 at 9:14 am

I am not sure what we can do. We are to pray for our enemies and do good to those who do bad to us (Luke 6) so what else can we do but pray for you?

Eugene September 26, 2020 at 10:03 pm

Dear Deepak, use the name of Jesus here. Bind all the negative thoughts of your boss in the name of Jesus. Satan triggers your boss to act against you so command in the name of Jesus that Satan’s plans and schemes be thwarted and nullified… remember God has empowered us… Jesus loves you Deepak and so do I as a brother…God bless you

Jack Wellman September 27, 2020 at 11:52 am

Hello Eugene. Thank you for your comment and trying to encourage Deepak Mathew, but as far as what the Bible teaches or says about us binding Satan or demons, many say that they are binding Satan and his demons and have authority over the demons, but I could not find such examples in the New Testament church. Of course, the apostles were able to cast out demons, but that was only because Jesus had given them the authority. Jesus had told them, “I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you” (Luke 10:19). “You” does not mean everybody as Jesus was talking to them and said “You” and not all. Obviously, this was not by the disciples’ own authority. It was by Jesus’ authority. The Bible does not teach us that we should bind demons, Satan, or command angels. What if God told the angels to do one thing but we commanded them to do another? That’s possible, if we indeed have authority over the angels, but I cannot see that revealed in Scripture. Even Daniel did not command the angels to shut the lion’s mouth. It was God’s will to send an angel to shut the lion’s mouth, not Daniel’s command to an angel to silence the lions.

Jesus’ own authority comes not from Himself but from the Father. Our Lord said that the Father has given the Son of Man “authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him” (John 17:2), so even our being chosen by God is a choice of God. Does Jesus have authority over the angels? Yes. He said He could dispatch twelve legions of angels if He chose to do so (Matt 26:53). The angels knew that the Lord Jesus Christ is “far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come” (Eph 1:21). Clearly, Jesus “is the head of all rule and authority” (Col 2:10), and obviously this includes angels…and by the way, that includes us.

Dear brother Jack,
Thank you so much for taking out your precious time and educating me on ‘authority’ ‘commanding the demons’ etc. It was truly an eye opener for me. Thank you for furnishing ample references from the Scripture. Will pray like Daniel !

Jack Wellman October 2, 2020 at 11:10 am

Thank you sir. You are so encouraging Eugene.
