Favor on the Job

Divider

But the LORD was with Joseph … and gave him favor.

Genesis 39:21


Joseph went through an incredible culture shock at a young age. He was accustomed to being under the watchful care of his father when suddenly Joseph was thrown into a pit by his own brothers. Yet Joseph held on to what he was taught about God. He worked diligently for Potiphar and was made second in charge. After being unjustly accused of rape by Potiphar’s wife, Joseph found favor with the jailer. Regardless of where he lived or what he did, God’s favor was on him.

Until Joseph was made second in command over all of Egypt, he may have been mistreated unfairly at times. Maybe other workers became jealous of him because of his success. Yet the Lord rose Joseph from a slave and prisoner to a position of high honor.

We also need the favor of God on our jobs regardless of our work environment. Sometimes it may be difficult, especially for those of us who work for unfair bosses. Yet God’s favor is greater than man’s favor. We don’t have to work hard to get people to like us—we work hard for the Lord and expect Him to take care of us everywhere we work.

The favor of God is greater than the favor of any CEO of a successful corporation. We serve the King of kings and Lord of lords over the whole earth. Every believer belongs to Him, and He will reward our faithfulness, even in times of difficulty on the job. Our responsibility is to work hard and resist the temptation of looking towards man instead of God. The Lord knows how to put us in the right place at the right time.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I pray for Your favor over me at my job every day. Give me eyes to see the many opportunities You give me to be light and salt to my coworkers. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
