Circle of Blessing – Genesis 39:3

When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord made everything he did successful…


His earthly master notices that Yahweh is with Joseph. His integrity and character were so obvious that Potiphar knew there was something different about him – something valuable and good. So valuable was it that Potiphar was blessed as a result of Joseph’s relationship with God. In effect, Potiphar is blessed by association.

God’s blessing in Joseph’s life brings favor from his earthly master. As Joseph faithfully follows Father God, blessings flow to his master who also shows Joseph favor as a result. It sill works that way today.

The favor of God radiates to those around us and often we reap the benefit. It leads to blessing on many fronts.
