SERIES: THE 10 TESTS (FROM PROMISE to PURPOSE)

THE POTIPHAR TEST – SERMON

GENESIS 39:1-6

SEPTEMBER 11, 2022

_________________________

Genesis 39:23 “The keeper of the prison did not look into anything that was under Joseph’s authority, because the Lord was with him; and whatever he did, the Lord made it prosper.”

Jeremiah 29:11For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Deuteronomy 29:9 "Therefore keep the words of this covenant, and do them, that you may prosper in all that you do."

3 John 2 "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers."

 

The First Key to Prospering is…

#1. THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.

Genesis 39:2 “The Lord was with Joseph so he succeeded (PROSPERED) in everything he did as he served in the home of his Egyptian master."

2 Kings 18:7 "The Lord was with him (HEZEKIAH); he prospered wherever he went. And he rebelled against the King of Assyria and did not serve him."

 

#2. THE KEY TO THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD IS OBEDIENCE

2 Chronicles 17:3-4 "Now the Lord was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the former ways of his father David; he did not seek the Baals, 4 But sought the God of his father, and walked in His commandments and not according to the acts of Israel."

1 Samuel 18:12 "Now Saul was afraid of David, because the Lord was with him, but had departed from Saul"

1 Samuel 18:14 "And David behaved wisely in all his ways, and the Lord was with him."

Isaiah 1:19-20 "If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; 20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken."

Deuteronomy 11:26-28 “Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse: 27 the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you today; 28 and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way which I command you today, to go after other gods which you have not known."

Job 36:11-12 "If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. 12 But if they do not obey, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge."

Genesis 4:16 "Then Cain went out from the presence of the Lord."

Psalm 51:11 "Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me."

 

#3. THE KEY TO OBEDIENCE IS FAITH

1 Thessalonians 5:17  “PRAY without CEASING.”

Hebrews 3:18-19 "And to whom was God speaking when he took an oath that they would never enter his rest? Wasn’t it the people who disobeyed him? 19 So we see that because of their unbelief they were not able to enter his rest."

 

#4. THE KEY TO FAITH IS HEARING THE WORD.
