The warden had no more worries, because Joseph took care of everything. The LORD was with him and caused everything he did to succeed.
When you are chosen by God and you decide to surrender your whole life to Him, He will be with you. As you have a high calling, God’s favor will follow you everywhere you go as it was the case with Joseph. The dream that God put in you, as your heart is to please your Creator, will face oppositions and persecutions even from close people, but what matters the most is God’s presence with you. When He is with you, you can be betrayed by your brethren, wrongly accused or in a high position, His presence will bring success wherever you are and whatever you do.
The LORD was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did as he served in the home of his Egyptian master (Gen. 39:2). As he ran away from temptation, the evil lady accused him wrongly and sent him to jail. But again, in prison, God gave Joseph favor in the sight of the prison keeper. It is highly probable, from the situation of this prison, that the keeper might have been previously acquainted with Joseph and knew he was innocent of the crime laid to his charge, as well as with the high integrity of his character. That may partly account for his showing so much kindness and confidence to his prisoner. But there was a higher influence at work, for “the Lord was with Joseph, and that which he did, the Lord made it to prosper.”
Joseph’s master believed the accusation. Potiphar, it is likely, chose that prison, because it was the worst. And you can be at the worst place today, but as God designed to open the way to Joseph’s honor, He will do it for you too. Joseph was owned and righted by his God. He was away from all his friends and relations. He had none to help or comfort him, but the Lord was with Joseph, and showed him mercy. Those who have a good conscience in a prison have a good God there with them. God gave him favor in the sight of the prison guard. He trusted him to manage the affairs of the prison. A good man will do good wherever he is and will be a blessing even in bonds and banishment.
Whatever your calling is, wherever you are today and whatever you are facing to fulfill your dreams, you will succeed as God is with you and will never forsake you. God’s favor and presence is the most important thing to have success in every step and places you will be during this journey with Him.
Prayer: God, you are my only God and I want to please You. I don’t understand everything, the places I’ve been and the challenges I’ve been or I’m facing right now. But I have faith that You are with me. As I will serve the best I can with a royal attitude,You will make me prosper. As You are with me, success is part of my inheritance wherever I am and whatever I do.
Quote: You can be at the worst place today, but as God designed to open the way to Joseph’s honor He will do it for you too, that you may succeed in everything.
