Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the entire land of Egypt.” (Genesis 41:41).
Do you know what season you are in? Do you know that there is God’s favour for every season we go through in life? In the worst of times, all you need is God’s favour to turn the tide. When things look impossible and you remain faithful, God will surprise you with His favour. He will swing open the doors that people say are impossible! Everyone mightily used by the Lord in the Bible experienced the favour of God.
The story of Joseph is one classic example out of many. (From Genesis 37-50). Joseph was disliked by his brothers because he was favored by his father, and for speaking about his dream (a destiny of greatness), even though he was the youngest of them all. His brothers mocked him, they were jealous and resentful of him. They plotted to kill him but God worked in Joseph’s favour, and instead of killing him, he was sold into slavery in Egypt.
In slavery, the devil fought his destiny at every turn. Joseph went from one “pit to another” yet, Joseph remained faithful to God and he was diligent in the tasks set before him by his masters. Because of this, God rewarded him with favour in every difficult situation. The Lord blessed Joseph so that everything he touched blossomed. And so, Joseph prospered in every season whilst serving as a slave in a foreign land. The Lord lifted him out of every pit the devil dug for him, eventually, Joseph became the prime minister in the nation of his captivity. That can only be God!
The destination to our destiny is often a painful journey. When God calls you to a task, you should be ready to face oppositions and challenges from “within and without.” But as you remain faithful, the Lord who is faithful to keep covenant will fight for you. He will turn everything thrown by the devil to harm you into good. Beloved be encouraged, as you keep your focus on Jesus, setting your face on the joy set before you (Hebrews 12:2), Know that, there is no trial or adversity that can bind up the favour of God from manifesting in your life.
Prayer Confession: Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your covenant of favour. I have a glorious life in your Word. There is a set favour for every season of my life. I refuse to be intimidated by my circumstances. Nothing can stop me. Satan you can’t stop me! There is no condemnation to those who dwell in Christ. God has preordained my life for greatness. My weakness and those who hurt me are not big enough to stop me. I am a believer and not a doubter. My time of manifestation has come. I will prosper and live in good health. My children are marked for great things in Christ. God is for me, and no divination, spell or adversity can bind up the favour of God in my life. My time of arising is now. My season of manifestation is here. I praise you Lord for there is no limits to your favour in my life. In Jesus name. Amen.
Reflection: “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11).
