The Lord With U Equals Success

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

You may have no qualification, position or wealth — nothing in the natural. But when the Lord is with u, u will end up with everything bcoz He will cause u 2b successful.

Joseph had nothing when his Egyptian master Potiphar bought him from the slave market. Yet, even then, it was said of him, “The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man...”

Joseph the slave a successful man? He was a nobody with nothing, not even a shirt on his back, not a dime 2 his name, no family members with him and no friends 2 turn 2. All he had was the presence of the Lord. But it was precisely bcoz of this that he was successful wherever he was. He eventually became the most powerful man in Egypt, second only 2 Pharaoh, who set him over all the land of Egypt. Joseph was given power, authority and riches (Genesis 41:40–44), all bcoz the Lord was with him.

A junior college student worshiping in our church experienced good success in his examination results 4 the same reason. The first 2 admit that he was just an average student, he obtained his first ever straight A's for all his subjects when he sat for the Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education (Advanced Level) Examination simply believing that he would be successful bcoz the Lord was with him!

Another church member, who was a fresh university graduate, believed that bcoz the Lord was with her, she would be successful in the workforce. Even though she had no work experience and was faced with a gloomy job market, she succeeded in getting her first job in a short period of time and which gave her a salary beyond her expectations. Then, in spite of a directive from the parent company 2 freeze the wages of all employees, she received a pay increment as well as a company scholarship 4 further education!

Beloved, it does not matter if u are a nobody with nothing in the natural. When the Lord is with u, u will end up with everything bcoz He will empower u 2 succeed, prosper and live the abundant life. Indeed, u will end up enjoying His favor, goodness and grace!
