Showers of Blessing

The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; Genesis 39:2

Jacob’s excessive love for Joseph and the tunic of many colors given to him by his father made his brothers hate him. His two dreams were much more than they could bear. Joseph believed the dreams as visions given to him by the Lord and waited for it to come. When he reached the house of Potiphar, the Egyptian realised that the Lord was with Joseph because everything he did prospered in his hand (Genesis 39:3). Potiphar and his field were blessed because of Joseph. The anointing on Joseph made the difference.

When Joseph was transferred to the prison, the keeper of the prison also had a supernatural favor on him (Genesis 39:21). Because of the presence of the Lord with Joseph, he was entrusted with the entire prisoners (Genesis 39:22). God knows His children and He makes roads in the wilderness for those whose hearts are loyal to Him. “He works for His children and no one can reverse it” (Isaiah 43:13).

Pharaoh realized that Joseph had the wisdom and the Spirit of God in him when he interpreted his dreams which were impossible for the wise men of Egypt. Joseph gave glory to God for the interpretation of the dreams. He was promoted to the position of Governor of Egypt because the Lord was with him and he did nothing to displease Him.

Beloved, hold on to the visions and prophecies the Lord has given you. It does not matter where you are, HE WHO CALLED YOU IS FAITHFUL AND HE WILL FULFILL THE PROMISES CONCERNING YOU no matter what the circumstances are. Although they tarry, it will take place.

Be Blessed!


  1. Praise God ! This is the word of the Lord for me today, many times I am disappointed that I don't do enough to reach a certain target or level, and sometimes your circumstances are so contrary to what God has promised! but this story of Joseph thrills me and gives me more reason to believe what God has promised. Thank you for posting. God bless

  2. The life of Joseph has always encouraged me.When God gave him a vision,He was only concerned about the end result.Joseph didn't expect the negative experiences in his life when God gave that dream. Many a times,we tend to worry about different things which we see in the physical realm. Of course,those circumstances will appear to be contrary to our promises and faith also.But remember,God sees only the end result.Yes,He is faithful enough to fulfill all His promises concerning each one of us because the promises are still ALIVE !! Have a Blessed day !!
