IMG_0371Scripture

Genesis 39:2-3

The LORD was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did as he served in the home of his Egyptian master. 3Potiphar noticed this and realized that the LORD was with Joseph, giving him success in everything he did.

Genesis 39:21-23

But the LORD was with Joseph in the prison and showed him his faithful love. And the LORD made Joseph a favorite with the prison warden.22Before long, the warden put Joseph in charge of all the other prisoners and over everything that happened in the prison. 23The warden had no more worries, because Joseph took care of everything. The LORD was with him and caused everything he did to succeed.

Observation

(2)The LORD was with Joseph so he succeeded in everything he did.

(23b) The LORD was with him and caused everything he did to succeed.

The fact that Joseph resisted his master’s wife advances showed integrity. In addition, our God who knows the end from the beginning had a plan for Joseph to preserve the Israelite people. Genesis 50:19-20.

Potiphar noticed that Joseph caused the affairs of his household to go well.

Application

God has a plan for each of us. I want to lead a life pleasing to God, a life of integrity.

Pray

LORD,

You show favor on whomever you want. I long for your favor. Help me to be a person You can prosper in whatever I do so like Potiphar others will see and know that it is you Who helps me do well. I want to honor you in all I do.

I love you,

me
