God Blessed all He Touched-Genesis 39 part 1

Joseph was given a raw deal.  He did the right things, he honored God and still, he was almost killed and ultimately sold as a slave.  BUT, what Joseph did—in his circumstances, always honored God and those he touched.  When he became a slave to Potiphar, he was clearly different.  He did great work and his love for God and God’s love for him translated into a blessing for his master.  The more he was trusted, the more his master was blessed.

 That is the Kind of person we need to be.  We need to be able to trust and honor God—no matter the circumstance.  It is difficult.  There are hours in everyday when you simply want to quit, give up and walk away.  But, we are called to walk in his path and follow him.  He promises to lead and provide all along the way.  It may not be in the way we expect, but, it is always his hand leading and providing.  We simply need to focus on honoring him with our lives and allow him to bless us and our “masters” because if us.  Help me, Lord to be a blessing to you.

 God Bless You

Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt. Potiphar, an Egyptian who was one of Pharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there.

2 The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. 3 When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, 4 Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned. 5 From the time he put him in charge of his household and of all that he owned, the Lord blessed the household of the Egyptian because of Joseph. The blessing of the Lord was on everything Potiphar had, both in the house and in the field. 6 So Potiphar left everything he had in Joseph’s care; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate.
