Today’s inspiration: “Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.” Isaiah 40:4. Life is filled with both valley and mountain moments. Our God changes not, but we need to change into the likeness of God in the image of Christ within. Malachi 3:6. God has His kairos and divine timing for all things. Do not be despair or discourage when things are not working out. Remember this, God can turn all our set backs into His set ups, when we choose to trust Him and walk in His commandments.
Joseph didn’t know why good dreams and visions can become a death threat by his brothers and doing moral good can cause him to be thrown into the prison. It is difficult to see what God is planning and preparing us during the tests, trials, and tribulations. All of us are afraid of pain, hurts, and rejections. Nevertheless, these make room for fresh encounters with the Lord. Genesis 50:20. In fact, the Lord was always with Joseph and through his struggle, he gained not just godly wisdom but spiritual discernments and gifts to decipher Pharaoh’s dream, prospered the land, prudence in famine and brought salvation to his family and the Israelites in Goshen. Glory to God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, I thank you for your presence and always watching over me despite the challenges I am facing, and the situation I am battling. You will always work all things out for my good and breakthroughs, according to your sovereign will and purpose. Let my eyes see the triumph in the test, and my heart draw out the greatest destiny in your calling, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
