Prospered In God’s Presence

Key Verse

“And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian” (Genesis 39:2).

Text — Genesis 39:1-5


God is Omnipresent. Joseph knew this fact very well. When no one was around, He knew God is present everywhere as the Bible says, “For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings” (Job 34:21). Although he was separated from family and friends, he was not separated from his God. Like Hagar, we must always bear in mind that, “Thou God seest me,” whether in prison or in palace. Joseph was wonderfully blessed even when he was in slavery. Righteousness leads to exaltation while sin brings degradation. The assurance and consciousness of God’s presence everywhere will help us to live in His fear, conduct ourselves properly and flee from every appearance of evil.

When we are in watchful eyes of fellow Christians or away from the prying eyes of parents and guardians, always be conscious of God’s presence. “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalm 16:11). God’s presence with us will make everything we do to prosper.


Be conscious of God’s Presence


If God be for us, who can be against us?
