Genesis 39:1-5 (NIV)
Joseph and Potiphar’s Wife
39 Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt. Potiphar, an Egyptian who was one of Pharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there. 2 The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. 3 When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, 4 Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned. 5 From the time he put him in charge of his household and of all that he owned, the Lord blessed the household of the Egyptian because of Joseph. The blessing of the Lord was on everything Potiphar had, both in the house and in the field.
Have you ever worked for someone, played for a coach, or had a teacher that sees something special in you? They might see something in you that you do not or cannot. Often those are the people that make the biggest impact on our lives. They give us opportunities and encourage us to dream bigger or to believe that God is using us in amazing ways. Ask God to help you see the way that He is blessing and working in others so that you can be like Potiphar and help others flourish. Also, take time to thank God for those people that have made an impact on your life.
