The Lord was with Joseph, and he became a successful man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master.

From the time that he made him overseer in his house and over all that he had, the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; the blessing of the Lord was on all that he had, in house and field.

  1. The Lord was with Joseph and the Lord caused all that he did to succeed. Those observing Joseph appreciated this and Joseph was continually placed in charge even in the prison! He was trustworthy and put all at ease when he was in charge because the Lord was truly at the helm!

  2. I revisited John 15 and posted there with a picture the Holy Spirit gave me. I am so grateful to our Heavenly Father for His bountiful grace, His long-suffering patience, and His tender love for me. I fall immeasurably short of what He deserves, yet He sees my heart, and delights in me because I am HIS in Christ. Joy!
