Genesis 41:40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.
If you haven't realized it as yet, people will hate you for any and everything. They will hate you for dreaming, they will hate you for your wisdom, they will hate you for your talent. Many will get jealous of you simply because you are different to them and sadly they will wish you bad and try to do all they can to bring you down. Don't be scared - that's people! Just BEWARE and have a discerning spirit!
Always remember this though. Victory always belongs to the TRUE Child of God - not the HYPOCRITES! You will always be able to tell by just LOOKING! Always remember that there are MILLIONS of people around the world PLAYING CHURCH AND ENJOYING RELIGION and there are but a few, only a select few who really BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF GOD AND SPIRITUALITY and have actually experienced GOD FOR THEMSELVES instead of just living by what preachers and singers say.
There is a distinct DIFFERENCE!
No matter how rough or tough or trying life may become, once you have your faith in God - you will be victorious. No matter how much your enemies, your haters, your friends and your family try to bring you down or talk badly about you, you will still shall have the VICTORY. THAT IS BIBLE - GOD'S WORD - NOTHING CAN CHANGE THAT!
Please remember, DELAYS ARE NEVER DENIALS!
Setup yourself and expect anything from anyone at anytime. If Joseph's brothers, his flesh and blood were jealous of him and sold him into slavery, what else should you expect from people who are not your relatives?
If you follow through the entire story of Joseph in Genesis, you'll quickly learn that this young man had a very trying life.
1. He simply dreamed and was hated for making his dreams known to those he thought cared
2. He was thrown down in a hole to die
3. He was taken up out the hole and sold as slave
4. He refused to have sex with the Pharoah's wife, so she accused him of trying to rape her and he was thrown into prison.
5. He asked the baker to remember to put in a word for him when he came out and the baker forgot or willfully didn't do it and so he had to wait for HIS TIME.
Friend, notice in all this, JOSEPH never gave up. He had faith in the middle of his desert until ONE DAY - YES ONE DAY - God delivered and he received such a remarkable PROMOTION / BLESSING THAT THE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD FINALLY SHUT THEIR MOUTHS AND STOOD AMAZED!
From the prison to the palace - WHAT A STORY!
Note well, once you have Jesus living in your heart, He would never forget you! NEVER! No matter how rough and tough it may be now, God is preparing your blessing and you CANNOT GIVE UP NOW!
You are not worst than anyone else. You are not worst than those talking about you. God helps and forgives all. THAT ALL INCLUDES YOU! While you may be in situation A, your talkers are out having adultery, or can't care for their children, or in a financial mess, or are always guilty of gossipping, or are stealing from their employers, or molesting underage young people, or are selling themselves for money, or can't get to keep their daughter from a certain man who has no ambition or their son from the gang boys or don't even have anything to eat in their cupboards or can't provide for their own, or manipulating and robbing people in the church and calling it GOSPEL, robbing TIME from employers etc etc etc
It's so sad that many of those who talk about others and act like they are all perfect when WE ALL HAVE OUR VARYING STRUGGLES.
Have faith in the middle of your desert! God will definitely see you through.
And, like Joseph's HATERS, his JEALOUS brothers, the people who are hating you now, talking badly about you now, discussing your situation now, won't be able to survive without you - WATCH AND SEE.
Do you understand the words in Joseph's letter of promotion in Genesis 41:40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.
Joseph was placed over nearly everything. He was the highest man in town. Go throughout the rest of your days from now on singing or humming or shouting, "MY PROMOTION IS COMING." As you do that, always remain in a spirit of expectancy that better days are coming.
God doesn't appreciate doubters, those that doubt because they cannot see what is ahead. Do you remember what he said to Doubting Thomas in John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
God LOVES people of FAITH! So, start planning to shift out from among doubting Thomas' from today. You'll find them in friends, on the job, in the church and sadly, like Joseph, in your family. Being around them is simply why your blessing is being delayed. All of their NEGATIVE WORDS and NEGATIVE SPIRITS circulating in the air are holding back your break though, your deliverance and your miracle. MOVE IMMEDIATELY FROM AMONG THEM and shortly after, you'll be sending me a message of just how God delivered you as a child of God.
Have Faith In The Middle of Your Desert - Don't Give Up - Hope is Ahead!
