Gen. 39:21 “Jehovah was with Joseph; and He extended kindness to him and gave him favor in the sight of the chief jailer.”




A life such as Joseph’s always has the presence of the Lord. Wherever the presence of the Lord is, there is authority. If you have the presence of the Lord, the authority of the Lord will be with you. For example, in captivity Daniel had the Lord’s presence; therefore, the Lord’s authority was with him…In the case of Joseph, Potiphar, an officer in Pharaoh’s palace, was in control of things. Eventually, however, Potiphar was under Joseph’s control because Joseph had the Lord’s presence…Although there was a ruler over the prison, eventually this ruler was not the actual ruler. Instead, Joseph, a prisoner who had the presence of God, became the ruler. Both in Potiphar’s house and in the prison Joseph became king.


Wherever the constitution of Christ goes with the presence of God, there will be the reigning part. In the coming kingdom it will be this part that will be the co-kings with Christ in the kingdom of the heavens. Thus, the reigning aspect of the mature life is a life that always enjoys the presence of the Lord. The authority in this universe is the Lord Himself. Wherever His presence is, there is authority, the ruling power. As long as we have the Lord’s presence, we have authority, even if we are in prison. Although we may be prisoners, we shall eventually become rulers. We shall rule wherever we are. This indicates that we are the reigning aspect of the mature life. (Life-study of Genesis, msg. 110)
