Genesis 39:1-6

“The king’s favor is toward a wise servant, But his wrath is against him who causes shame.” (Prov 14:35)

When we diligently carry out our duties, whether secular or spiritual, as unto the Almighty God, we are bound to be divinely favoured. It is the will of God that every employee does the right thing to justify the wages he or she earns. This as the reason why the Holy Spirit moved Paul to instruct us to be diligent in our service to our employers, be they private or government institutions. (Ephesians 6:5-7) We all need divine favour, not only to succeed but to succeed without stress. What can we do to attract divine favour in our chosen careers? The answer is diligence and faithfulness to the terms of our engagement with our employers. There was nothing extraordinary in what Joseph did in Potiphar’s house; the only difference between him and other slaves was the divine favour operating in his life through diligence. No wonder the wisdom of God in Proverbs22:29 says, “Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men.”

More often than not, most people take more forms of divine intervention for granted especially when such intervention does not affect them the way they expect. One more lesson we should learn here is that there is nothing too small or too big to pray about, especially when it requires divine favour.

The king’s favour is toward a wise servant….(Proverbs 14:35)
