TOPIC: WISDOM FOR LEADERSHIP IN THE WORKPLACE / CAREER(PART 2)

Scripture: Genesis 39: 9. There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

In continuation of what we started yesterday, today we shall be considering Joseph.

Joseph as a case study:

1. Be an asset not a concern(Gen.39:5): The moment Joseph was engaged as the estate manager of Mr Potiphar, every thing turned on the positive note because he was an asset and not a liability to Potiphar’s house.

Dear leader, if you want to rise in life wisdom demands that your arrival in that organization, department or office signal a change.

Since the last time you were promoted, what changes have you effected?

Meanwhile as a child of God you have the Holy Spirit whom you can consult for meaningful developmental changes.
Don’t let your employer see you as a burden or a concern!

Be there to cause a change.

Let your coming signal growth and expansion to that organization. Reject the spirit of maintaining status quo! The arrival of Joseph was felt, may your presence be felt from this day forward in the name of Jesus.

2. Be reliable, dependable and trustworthy (Gen. 39:6): Joseph could be trusted hence, his master entrusted everything for him to manage

Dear leader, wisdom demands that everything under your care be safe. If you cannot be trusted, you are not a candidate for the blessing (Prov. 28:20).

Proverbs 28: 20. A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.

3. Decongest the life of your boss(Gen.39:6): Joseph became prominent by taking away burdens from his master.

Dear leader, One of the reasons you were hired is to lessen the burden of your employer, so be a problem solver not money monger.

Be a solution provider!

Joseph always identified problems and proferred solutions.

Don’t be one of those who go to work to show their irresponsibility by staying idle!

To be responsible means go to your boss and ask what you can do to help relief him/her of their burden, and in helping your boss you are registering your interest in his heart.

If you are the boss create profitable task daily in line with organization objectives.

4. Refuse immorality in the workplace (Gen. 39:8-11): Joseph refused immorality in the workplace .

Dear leader, wisdom demands you refuse every immoral move in your workplace. Refuse to sleep with your boss/secretary!

Reject that sexual advance your colleague or boss is making towards you. They may promise you promotion, travels abroad, additional pay etc, if you try it you will only end up with regret!

Today many are pregnant for their boss, what a shame!

Many have crashed their destinies on the altar of sexual immorality going on in the workplace, say no to it!

So many marriages have been been destroyed because of lack of wisdom to manage immorality going in the workplace.

You have a great career destiny don’t ruin it because you want to get a job. If you need to get a job with sexual immorality, you can’t keep such a job without it. So don’t start what you cannot continue.

I’m aware of a church in town where they only give young girls job after messing up with them!

Wisdom demands that any job that wants your body does not deserve you.

So many young ladies go through a lot of things, some are emotionally abused yet the promised job never comes.

May God give you understanding in Jesus name.

5. Prepared for your next level before it arrives(Gen.41:14): Joseph was fully prepared for the position of prime minister before it arrived.

Dear leader, wisdom demands that you don’t wait for opportunity to meet you unprepared. When opportunity meets with preparation the result is celebration.

So invest in yourself, develop your skills, sharpen your gift, educate your mind with a superior information. Let a better version of you emerge as you prepare for your next level

Remember this: Hell is real and heaven is real. God values your eternal soul. Give Jesus your life today.

Prayer points:
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, I receive the wisdom to demonstrate leadership in the workplace in the name of Jesus.

Prophetic Declaration:

– I prophesy wisdom that sets people apart in their chosen careers, receive it now in Jesus name.
– Your name is excluded from the list of those to be demoted in the name of Jesus.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
