Word: And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand. Genesis 39:2, 3.
Thought: We saw yesterday on the blessed man who will bear fruit even in the year of drought, because the Lord was with him and Joseph is a perfect epitome of it. Even as a slave in the master’s house or as a prisoner, the eyes of his master or the prison keeper were able to see that God was with him and everything he did prospered. Joseph was not just blessed, but was a channel of blessing. In our workplace, is our boss able to see us a different person because the Lord is with us? Not just by being different, but by showing the difference in our work – If the Lord is with us, anything we do should prosper. Let us examine ourselves to see if we labor in vain or see the fruits of our hand. Do we restrict God to outside of our workplace and toil hard with less outcome in our work. When God is with us, we should be better in whatever we do and whatever the situation might be – may be a tough terrain, a difficult boss, a complicated project, tight deadline – when the Lord is with you, you can do what others can’t do and you will rise up to be a testimony in the place where God has placed you.
Prayer: Dear Lord, be with me and let people see you in me and in everything that I do, that your name be glorified. Amen.
