“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.” Joseph worked for Potiphar about 10 years. God paid Potiphar handsomely for boarding His servant Joseph.
God’s blessings are so big, they stretch out so far, that even nearby objects feel the effect. Because of Joseph, Potiphar was benefited. Think about that. Let’s say you are currently experiencing the blessing of God. You might conclude that God is favoring you because of your talents, because of your faithfulness, when in reality your prosperity is a windfall due to a humble hard working employee, may be due to an associate or a faithful wife praying for you.
Potiphar was smart enough to figure this out. A lot of men and women aren’t smart enough to figure out why they are getting the blessings they are getting. How many men are blessed because of a praying wife? She may sit alone in church while he is off elsewhere. He is too busy for God, but God’s blessing is so big upon his humble neglected wife that the husband benefits. God blessed Potiphar for Joseph’s sake. The Apostle Paul’s very presence on that sinking ship saved everybody on board from death in the storm.
Maybe a farmer has rich harvests because he has a little handicapped girl at home praying for him. She connects that whole house with heaven!
