Honor God and He will honor you

“The warden paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care, because the LORD was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did.” Genesis 39:23.

Joseph was a man that was greatly used by God to preserve his father, his family, and nations in a time of famine.  Joseph’s journey, however, included jealousy, treachery, slavery, lies, and slander but God’s purpose for his life was more powerful than all that he faced.  He went from his parents loving protection to be thrown in a pit and left to die by his jealous brothers.  He was a victim of treachery by his brothers who tried to kill him – the same brothers whom he would later save.

He was sold into slavery and eventually bought by Potiphar, one of Pharaoh’s officials, to become the manager of his household.  The grace on his life made him so attractive that Pharaoh’s wife tried to seduce him.  Joseph, however, was a man of great character and resisted the temptation of Potiphar’s wife.  When Joseph ran from her, she became bitter and lied that he tried to seduce her.  Joseph ended up in prison but he was promoted in prison.  Wherever Joseph went he was blessed and was a blessing.  “The LORD was with Joseph and he prospered.” Genesis 39:2.

When you pray the Pillars of CHAYIL Glory to grow in your life in worship, wisdom, power, honor, favor, wealth, and influence it will help you in your decisions, actions, and attitude to remain in Jesus. Joseph preserved himself in CHAYIL Glory until God gained great glory through Him.  Joseph was honored everywhere he went and he eventually became the Prime Minister of Egypt. Joseph honored God through all circumstances and God honored him, “The LORD was with Joseph and he prospered.” Genesis 39:2. I declare that God is with you and you too shall prosper.
