The Lord was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did as he served in the home of his Egyptian master. Genesis 39:2 (NLT)
With the highs and lows of the economy, job losses, and inflation, our jobs, businesses, and careers can feel uncertain at times and can place additional stress on our lives. It is easy to feel discouraged and overwhelmed by the pressures and expectations that our work has on us and the toll it can have on our marriage and family. As a business owner or manager responsible for your employees, the pressure and weight you carry for the success and provision of your business and employees can be overwhelming at times.
Like Joseph, even though he had experienced unexpected setbacks and disappointments in his life, “the Lord was with Joseph,” and He continued to show Joseph favor and provision by protecting him and even elevating him. This is our prayer for you. Just like God was kind and gracious to Joseph, our prayer is that the “Lord will be with you.” His hand of provision and protection will shine favorably upon you and even elevate you in ways that cannot even be explained apart from the hand of God at work in your life.
As we continue to pray this prayer of blessing over family, friends, and our future, let's pray God will provide and bless us with supernatural favor in our work.
May the LORD bless you and protect you. May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you. May the LORD show you his favor and give you his peace. Numbers 6:24-26 (NLT)
Lord, thank you for your continued kindness and blessings in my life. Today, I ask that you be with me as you were with Joseph and grant me favor, provision, and protection over my life and career. Just like you did for Joseph, I ask that you give me success in everything I do and that you would elevate me in ways that allow me to shine your light as a testimony of your unfailing love and kindness to me. No matter what, I place my trust in you as my sustainer and provider. In Jesus' name, Amen!
