TOPIC – SITUATION THAT OCCASION YOUR PROMOTION
Read: Genesis 41:22-44
MEMORISE: And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt” (Genesis 41:41).
May God help us to understand His working and works. The way God works is far, as distant as the earth from the heavens, from the way we think things should work. Many groan. “Things are not working and form….”This is after many efforts and attempts have been made to reach certain goals. Until we understand times and situations, we will remain baffled, instead of being unruffled, with the predicament in our lives (Hab. 2:4).
Many of us seem to query God: “Why must I go through all these (stress, discomfort, hardship, failures…) before I breakthrough in life?” Well, the simple but salient answer is that, God, in His unquestionable character, has designed it that there should be situations that would occasion your promotion.
Daniel went through his own rigours that were unfavourable to him, but eventually, he made it (Dan 6:1ff). What about the dogged three Hebrew? Before them was a fierce fire furiously prepared, but they were unperturbed, though threatened! Their testimonies were much desired today.
Before Joseph, the dreamer realized his dreams, he passed through the divinely orchestrated due processes. The then Pharaoh had to be troubled by his riddle-ridden dream before Joseph was remembered! Can you imagine that? Unless the God-ordained situation has come, there will be no occasion to cause your promotion.
The earlier this sinks into your systems the better for you.
Unless God remembers you, no one will. (Gen. 40:23). God remembered Noah after the flood (Gen 8:1), God remembered Abraham (Gen 19:9), God remembered Rachael (Gen 30:22). Stay expectant of your divine visitation that will lead to unstoppable promotions.
1. O Lord, assist me to work by Your own calculations for my life, whether I understand them or not.
2. Lord, let everything that must happen to lead me to my throne be set in motion and monitored by Your power, in Jesus’ name.
3. Pray for brethren who are about backsliding hopelessness of their different situations.
