Are You A Success?
The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. – Genesis 39:2 (NKJV)
Joseph had nothing. He was sold into slavery with a dime or stitch of clothing to his name. All of his possession left behind. Yet God called him a successful man. We may have nothing–no spouse, no kids, underemployed, health problems–but God, like Joseph, still calls us successful. Why? Because of our efforts? No because the Lord is with us. It is His presence in our lives, our dependence of Him, that makes us successful. It is not what we do, but who we have in our lives that make us prosper in every area of our lives.
