The Lord is With You

Jan 12, 2024

The LORD was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did as he served in the home of his Egyptian master.
Potiphar noticed this and realized that the LORD was with Joseph, giving him success in everything he did.
Genesis 39:2-3 NLT

When Joseph was little, his father had a coat of colors made for him. He loved Joseph more than the other brothers. Joseph gets put in a pit, sold into slavery and another kind of coat was put on him – a garment to show he’s a slave to Potiphar. That slave coat is left in the hands of the woman who accuses Joseph of trying to do something to her that he would never do. So, he sits in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. We’ll see later that Pharaoh dresses him in fine linen once Joseph interprets his dreams and he is taken out of prison.

I say all this, because no matter where Joseph was, what kind of garment was put on him or what happened to him, “The Lord was with Joseph.” Whether he was wearing a coat of favor or a slave coat, the Lord was with him and Potiphar noticed this. These verses come to mind when I think of Joseph: “I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭12‬-‭13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

No matter what situation you’re in (like in the life of Joseph), the Lord is with you! You can do all things through Him who strengthens you.
