How did Joseph of old end up with such a responsible position in Potiphar’s house? When he arrived in Egypt, the Ishmaelite traders sold him as a slave to Potiphar, an Egyptian officer and captain of Pharaoh’s guard. The account in Genesis 39 tells us, “The LORD was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did as he served in the home of his Egyptian master. Potiphar noticed this and realized that the LORD was with Joseph, giving him success in everything he did. This pleased Potiphar, so he soon made Joseph his personal attendant. He put him in charge of his entire household and everything he owned. From the day Joseph was put in charge of his master’s household and property, the LORD began to bless Potiphar’s household for Joseph’s sake. All his household affairs ran smoothly, and his crops and livestock flourished. So Potiphar gave Joseph complete administrative responsibility over every thing he owned.” Joseph was a young man with great integrity. By doing his work well, the promotions came.
