TOPIC: FROM PRISON TO PALACE
DATE: SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 27th, 2015
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivered him from them all.”
Psalm 34:19 (KJV)
Many are the afflictions, but you are delivered from them all. In other words, no matter how many the attacks are in your office, business, finances, marriage, health or school, you are assured that it will turn out for your good. You are coming out in Jesus name.
Men may have ridden on you. You may have gone through fire and flood but at the end God will bring you into a wealthy and well-watered place. We are told in scriptures that Joseph was thrown into jail for an offence he did not commit. He refused to weep or lament but simply endured the pain and shame of prison life for many years until God brought him out. Do you remember that the man whose dream he interpreted in prison also forgot all about him? He didn’t throw in the towel because of that, like some of us would have done. He was not even angry with the man but kept trusting God until the set time when Pharaoh ordered that he be brought out of prison. He went to jail as a slave, but he came out prepared for the Palace.
Just imagine what could have happened if he had refused to endure what he went through. Yes, maybe after an investigation, Potiphar his master may have discovered he never committed the crime he was accused of. But he would have certainly missed the palace. That will not be your portion in Jesus name. As you patiently await God to bring you out of that situation, ensure you stay in the word and in fellowship with God and the brethren. Give of your time, talent and ability to the advancement of the gospel and grow the kingdom agenda.
As you continue to stand in faith trusting the Lord for that supernatural intervention, He will arise on your behalf. He will show you a token for good and fill your mouth with testimonies. I declare that the lines will fall for you in pleasant places. Your ground will continually produce and for your shame my God will give you double.
