One Liners – Joseph

I love the way the Old Testament uses amazing one liners to describe men and women of God, they are great to meditate on and a serious stimulus to faith. This is Joseph in Genesis 39:23 (ESV),

“…the Lord was with him. And whatever he did, the Lord made succeed.”

And this was whilst he was in prison. Wow!

It is worth noting that when suddenly summoned before Pharaoh and asked to interpret his dreams Joseph immediately gave all the glory and honour for the gift he had to God. Pride had taught him humility (Gen. 41:16).
