The LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.--Gen. 39:3

This is the priveledge of that soul who walks before God and seeks His smile rather than his own selfish ends and personal advancement. We read, "The LORD was with Joseph," and it was also true that Joseph was with the Lord. This is to say, his desires and thoughts and will were with Him. This was true of Joseph in the prison as well as the palace, in adversity as well as in prosperity. The above is recorded of him before his sore trial and false imprisonment. "The LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand." "The LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake." But what do we read of him when he is cast into prison? The same thing is again recorded. "But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewd him mercy, and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison. And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatever they did there, he was the doer of it" (vv. 21,22) Here again we see God's blessing resting on him. Let us learn from this that both temporal and spiritual prosperity have but one source.
