“the LORD was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of the prison warden.” (Genesis 39:21)
The Lord showed him kindness and favor. Which of us would not want more of that? We who are called to His purposes and surrendered to His will are able to solicit His favor. That can be manifest in many ways. Resistance can fall away, the hearts of those who oppose us can shift, and we can expect favor from those in authority over us.
There is something about walking closely with God that creates an atmosphere. This can shift mindsets and circumstances. Sometimes just our presence in a place or situation can move opposition or bring resolution. This is no source of pride because it is not us; it is the Holy Spirit Who indwells us, and His anointing can literally move mountains.
Be bold. Why not seek His will and ask for His favor? You may be surprised by just how willing He is to move on your behalf to accomplish His will.
Quick Prayer. “I ask for your favor Father” Amen
“But Laban said to him, ‘If I have found favor in your eyes, please stay. I have learned by divination that the Lord has blessed me because of you.’” (Gen 30:27)
If you are born again, you have become a new creation. These are words we take for granted, but in a very real way, we are now different. Our spirits are now open, and the Holy Spirit indwells us.
In a very real and physical way, we bring the presence of God into our workplace. Regardless of your position at work, God is with you and wants to work through you.
Those around us will receive benefit and blessing just by being associated with us. Is that a source of pride? No, not really. It is probably more of a source of amazement. God will bless your workplace because you are there, if we allow Him to.
Quick Prayer: Bless those around me and the organization I work for. Amen.
