Scripture Quote: GOD was still with Joseph: He reached out in kindness to him; he put him on good terms with the head jailer. The head jailer put Joseph in charge of all the prisoners—he ended up managing the whole operation. The head jailer gave Joseph free rein, never even checked on him, because GOD was with him; whatever he did GOD made sure it worked out for the best. (Genesis 39:21-23)
The Lord was with Joseph and he prospered and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Even though Joseph was hated by his brothers and sold as a slave, God cared and worked for his good. We can also find favor in God's care.
After Potiphar's wife falsely accused Joseph of inappropriate advances, sending him to jail, God still gave Joseph favor while imprisoned. God was always with Joseph and He directed every seemingly bad turn of events into something positive for Joseph. God's kindness and mercy caused the prison warden to put Joseph in charge of all the prisoners. The warden paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care because the Lord was with Joseph and gave him success in everything he did. God will do the same for every faithful believer who trusts Him and who waits expectantly for His goodness and mercy.
Today’s meditation: God’s favor can change any circumstance.
Memory Verse: His master recognized that GOD was with him, saw that GOD was working for good in everything he did. (Genesis 39:3)
