April Letter 2: The Blessed Life
Grace Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received the mandate to educate, equip and empower believers everywhere with the Biblical truths, relevant teachings and the practical tools that will enable them become what they were born to be, do or have.
God is set to do something new in the earth that will outsmart the enemy in all his antics. One thing that I have learned about the devil is that he never thinks things through. Let me explain what I mean by using the story of Joseph to clarify that statement.
When the brothers of Joseph heard his testimony about his dreams. They hated him and plotted to kill him to put an end to his dreams. However, they later chose to sell him into slavery to take him further away from them so that they may never bow down to him. But they never knew that by selling him as a slave they had thrusted him towards the fulfillment of his destiny.
Secondly, when Potiphar’s wife lied on him and he was cast into prison, It seemed like that was the end but it wasn’t. It was only a repositioning. A blessed man cannot be disadvantaged. It was in prison that his gift made an indelible impact on the cupbearer of Pharaoh.
But the man forgot him for two full years. It seemed like a disadvantage but it kept him waiting for the right time. When Pharaoh’s dream could not be interpreted, the cupbearer remembered Joseph. Then Joseph came out of Prison to interpret Pharaoh’s dreams and his own dreams were fulfilled.
Let’s look at his life again. What if he was never sold as a slave? What if he was never put in prison? What if there was no global famine? He would never have fulfilled his destiny. All the negative experiences in Joseph’s life were simply moving him closer to the dream.
What about you? Life may have been difficult for you lately. You may have lost your job. You may have been betrayed by friends and family. There seems to be no one to help you and the news is filled with negative reports about deaths and famine. Think for a moment. Has Joseph come to his season? Which Joseph? you may ask. You are that Joseph. Everything that seemed negative in your life is simply a positioning to move you towards the fulfillment of your God given dreams. When men say there is a casting down, you will say, “There’s a lifting up.” Hello “Joseph” the crown awaits you. Selah
