Experiencing “The Lord’s Favor!”

I read the story of Joseph again this morning and his experiences in Potiphar’s house and in Prison – as a slave and as a prisoner – a person was treated unfairly and accused unjustly (Genesis 39). Here is person who illustrates “YOU CANNOT KEEP A GOOD MAN OR WOMAN DOWN!” Here is someone who shows us what it means to live with integrity and enjoy “THE FAVOR OF THE LORD”!! Here are some of the key phrases in the story…

“The Lord was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did… Potiphar noticed this and realized that the Lord was with Joseph, giving him success in everything he did… From the day Joseph was put in charge of his master’s household and property, the Lord began to bless Potiphar’s household for Joseph’s sake…

“But the Lord was with Joseph in prison and showed him His faithful love… The Lord was with Joseph and caused everything he did to succeed.” (From Genesis 39 in the New Living Translation)

I want to live that way!! I want to deal with whatever life brings (just or unjust) with such devotion to God and integrity that “THE LORD MAKES ME TO PROSPER” AND I ENJOY “THE FAVOR OF THE LORD”!! I want to live my life daily in such a way that not only I am blessed but that others are blessed because of me… don’t you?
