The Lord was with Joseph

A Note From the Pastor – The Lord was with Joseph


Genesis 1:37-38 “Joseph’s suggestions were well received by Pharaoh and his officials. So Pharaoh asked his officials, ‘Can we find anyone else like this man so obviously filled with the spirit of God?’” The story of Joseph is an incredible story.  Three times in Genesis 39 the author records these words: “The Lord was with Joseph.”  The impact of these five words would directly affect the lives of millions in the generations to come.


Would not those words be fitting for one’s gravestone?  The Lord was with _____.


God gives us this invitation every day of our lives.  Will we choose to walk with Him, meditate upon Him, enjoy Him today?  It is always our choice, be it at home with your children, working for your employer, advancing your education, serving your parents.  The circumstances we find ourselves in are endless.  May we live lives that truly honor our Lord and may these words reflect our lives, “The Lord was with _____.”


Have an incredible week.


Building Together,
The Pastors
