Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional August 23rd – Live Out Your Success

(Be Prosperous And Effective!)

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

Joseph was described as “a prosperous man” despite being a slave in Potiphar’s house. This shows that prosperity isn’t a function of the career you choose, but a result of the excellence in your spirit.

In our opening verse, the word “prosperous” is translated from a Hebrew word which means to be prosperous and effective.

So, not only was Joseph prosperous, he was also effective. Even though he had been sold into slavery, falsely accused and imprisoned, his ordeal didn’t taint the quality of his spirit. He recognised that the Lord was with him, and so exuded the spirit of a prosperous man.

The Bible says in Romans 15:4, “For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.”

This implies that the story of Joseph was written for our learning. So, can it be said of you that you’re prosperous and effective in the things you do?

Today, the same Lord that was with Joseph is with you and lives in you in the Person of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 3:16). Talking about Him, Jesus said, “…the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance…” (John 14:26).

The Holy Spirit living in you will teach you how to be more effective in the things God has called you to do, but you’re to acknowledge His indwelling and abiding presence in your life.

Father, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for working in me, both to will and to do of your good pleasure. Thank you for blessing me, making me a blessing, and causing me to prosper and be effective in everything I do, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
