Genesis 41:44~57 Moreover, Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no one shall lift up hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.” And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphenath-paneah. And he gave him in marriage Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On. So Joseph went out over the land of Egypt. (44~45)

In the past, when a disaster was imminent throughout the world, God prepared Joseph who would block it with “only Gospel.” Even when standing in front of the world and Satan’ s attacks, Joseph possessed the resolution of “only Gospel.” Through him, everyone witnessed that God was truly alive. Like the meaning of the name “Zaphenath-Paneah,” what Word does the living God want to relay through you today?
1. Grab Hold of the Source of the Covenant and Success
Through Joseph, God spoke about the source of the covenant. This was the covenant that would save all people from disaster. You must believe in God who is leading you inside of everything to know, realize, and experience this Gospel. Inside of that, God will give you spiritual strength and help you to know the fundamental success that saves the world that is stricken with disasters.
2. Hold onto the Source of the Future
Without a doubt, God has given you the fulfillment of the covenant, thus the source of the future. It means that you are standing in the line of the covenant and the fulfillment of world evangelization. Joseph was convinced of this since he was a child. At that time, his standards were already aligned to world evangelization. The disasters that have stricken this age can be blocked by “only Gospel.” This is the reason why you must hold onto world evangelization as your source for the future.
Joseph possessed the source of power to block disasters and the strength that came from the deep prayer of enjoying answers in his everyday life. By enjoying this strength like Joseph, you will confirm the answer of blocking the disasters of this age that nobody else can.
[Covenantal Prayer] Dear God, help me to grab hold of Your covenant, the source of success that only You can give, and world evangelization which is the source of the future. In Jesus Christ’s name I pray. Amen.

Q. What Are the Reasons for Concentration?
Do you know the meaning of the name “Zaphenath- Paneah”?
“God has spoken. God is alive and has spoken to you.”
In other words, it represents how Pharaoh accurately saw the living God and His works through Joseph.
Undoubtedly, the world and many unbelievers clearly witness something when they see your life.
You must have a time of concentration when you surrender everything and completely fill yourself with God, His desires, and His power.
In every aspect of your life, it is clearly evident that you need to have the time of “24 hours” to confirm God’s absolute sovereignty and plan.
