    THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM 

    And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:  And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom….(Isaiah 11:2)

    I want to talk about the Spirit of wisdom today; I consider the Spirit of wisdom the most important of the 7 Spirits of God. Samson had the anointing of God upon his life in a magnificent way but he lacked wisdom, hence he crashed his destiny.

    Moses lacked wisdom otherwise he wouldn’t have murdered the Egyptian, Jacob lacked wisdom, he wouldn’t have resorted to 419 to obtain what belonged to him. If there is any impartation I will advise you to covet with all your heart and soul, it is the Spirit of wisdom. It puts you ahead of situations in life, it is the principal thing.

    Paul praying for his friends at Ephesus declared,’ That the Father of glory may give unto you the SPIRIT OF WISDOM’… (Ephesians 1:17) … Apostle Paul is responsible for 2/3 of the New Testament with great depth into the word of God. Obviously, he saw the importance of the Spirit of wisdom before praying for his friends. I believe we should covet the same in like manner.

    God is the giver of wisdom and his works speaks for itself: Looking at man, the nervous system, the complex nerves in the brain, the digestive system and the entire composition of man echoes wisdom. God created the heavens and the earth by wisdom; he created the sea before the fishes, he created the animals and crops before he created man and he created the trees before he created the birds. Have you considered the solar system and the millions of stars in the galaxies? Everything is a product of the wisdom of God.

    I want to talk about characters that had this impartation: King Solomon is arguably the wisest man that has crossed the surface of the earth by virtue of the wisdom God gave him. The story of Solomon is a thesis on wisdom; Solomon asked God for wisdom and God gave him more than he asked, for God was impressed because he coveted the Spirit of wisdom above other things. Solomon could have asked for wealth but he didn’t, he could have asked God for power but he didn’t; He asked for wisdom from the most high and God gave him more than enough.

    Wisdom has a language; you can’t have it and not know, neither can people deny it. It has a voice with a big sound system. A practical example is the case where two women came to Solomon with a child both laying claim to, the judgement pronounced by Solomon made the whole Israel respect him. Wisdom spoke loud and the people marvelled. Solomon wrote 3,000 proverbs and 1,300 songs, kings, great men and women came from all the nooks and crannies of the world to listen to the wisdom of Solomon. Solomon had answers to all their enquiries and challenges and he was rewarded with gifts in varying magnitudes. Solomon became very rich because wisdom attracts wealth. Unlike David, Solomon never fought a war in his time as king of Israel; he made treaties with other kingdoms; wisdom protected the nation of Israel from war.

    Adam is another marvellous example of a man who had the impartation of this grace in a powerful way. Adam named all the animals in the world without any form of learning; when God brought the woman to him, he named her immediately and gave the reason for her name. He had access to the wisdom of God; he was operating in the same frequency of God. Noah is also a classical example of a very wise man; he was able to put all the animals in the ship with no form of fighting amongst them, be it wild or pets. It takes wisdom to have the lion and the sheep in the same place without blood being spilled.

    Jacob also had the Spirit of wisdom working in his life; he was able to breed special specie of sheeps in his favour in a spectacular manner via the wisdom of God. He became very wealthy as a result of that.

    Joseph told pharaoh the interpretation of his dream; 7 years of prosperity and 7 years of famine. He didn’t stop there, he also told Pharaoh to set a man over the management of resources during the 7 years of abundance to cushion the effects of the impending famine. Pharaoh was impressed by his display of wisdom; he was made the prime minister.

    Daniel had the Spirit of wisdom and he rose to become the prime minister in a foreign land. There was a challenge concerning handwritings on the wall which troubled the royal household. But the Queen recommended Daniel to the king thus: There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom is the spirit of the holy gods; and in the days of thy father light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods, was found in him. (Daniel 5:11,12). When Daniel was brought before the king, the king made further remarks: I have even heard of thee, that the spirit of the gods is in thee, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom is found in thee (Daniel 5:14). Daniel told the royal household the meaning of the writings. (TO BE CONTINUED)

    7 SPIRITS OF GOD: THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD 

    To buttress the validity of the 7 Spirits of God, I will like to share some bible passages with you:

    And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead (Revelation 3:1)

    And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD. (Revelation 4:5)

    And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD sent forth into all the earth. (Revelation 5:6)

    The three references above affirm that Jesus had the 7 Spirits of God; furthermore, the birth of the messiah was foretold by Prophet Isaiah: And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD. (Isaiah 11:1,2). The 7 Spirits of God are clearly listed here, I will like to expatiate on the 7 Spirits of God.

    The Spirit of the Lord: I consider the Spirit of the lord the hand of the lord or the anointing of the lord coming upon an individual for a specific task. Going through the manifesto of Jesus in Luke 4:18, he declared: THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. Please understand there is the anointing within and the anointing upon, the Holy Spirit comes on our inside to fill us when we receive his baptism but the anointing comes upon individuals specifically for service. From the text above in Luke 4:18, we can see clearly the Spirit of the lord came upon Jesus for service, to preach the gospel to the poor, heal the broken-hearted…

    I strongly believe the Spirit of the lord is like a seal coming on an Individual without which the other 6 Spirits cannot function. Remember what happened when Jesus was being baptized? And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased (Mathew 3:17). The Spirit of the lord coming upon an individual is God committing himself to that individual.

    Let’s look at other examples of Individuals the Spirit of the lord came upon in the Holy book:

    1.David: David enjoyed the backing of the Spirit of God in a practical way. He never lost a battle in his lifetime. David was anointed for service by Samuel: Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the SPIRIT OF THE LORD came mightily upon David from that day forward (1 Samuel 16:13). So we can see from here one of the ways the Spirit of God comes upon an individual is via anointing with Oil. David couldn’t function until the Spirit of the lord came upon him.

    2.Othniel was a judge but he needed the anointing of the Spirit of God to function in that capacity: And the SPIRIT OF THE LORD came upon him , and he judged Israel, and went out to war: and the LORD delivered Chushan-rishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed against Chushan-rishathaim.

    3.Saul: Saul disobeyed God and the SPIRIT OF GOD left him as a result of that: ‘But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.’ (1 Samuel 16:14)

    4.Ezekiel: I am sure you are aware of the epic story of Ezekiel in the valley of dry bones. How exactly was Ezekiel able to do all God instructed him to do? The answer can be found in Ezekiel 37:1,’ THE HAND OF THE LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD , and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones.’ Please take note the hand of the lord is synonymous with the Spirit of God.

    5.Samson: How was Samson able to do all those remarkable things written about him? And when he came unto Lehi, the Philistines shouted against him: and the SPIRIT OF THE LORD came mightily upon him, and the cords that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands loosed from off his hands( Judges 15:14

    6.Philip: How did Philip manage to disappear after the baptism? When they came up out of the water, THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing(Acts 8:39)

    The Spirit of God can come upon individuals for actions not stated above; this is in no way a comprehensive account of the manifestations of the Spirit of God in the life of a believer. The Spirit of the lord can help you in every area of your life, if you will yield to him. If you look at the manifestations of the Spirit of God in the lives of the 6 characters above, you’ll understand God can help you in diverse ways; be it in your business, marriage, education and in any area where you need his help. If the hand of the lord comes upon you in that organization there is no way you wont be promoted because the Spirit of God is an excellent Spirit. The bible says where the Spirit of the lord is, there is liberty, hence no yoke or burden can survive the hand of the lord upon an individual.

    THE 7 SPIRITS OF GOD 

    I want to share with you today one of the most important messages you will ever come across. Please don’t get me wrong, it will not be because of my writing ability or skill but by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Sequel to this, I have established the fact that your prosperity is tied to the third person of the God-head, the Spirit of the living God.

    To further show the importance and indispensability of the Holy Spirit, God had to rely on him during creation. The bible describes that the earth was null and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering on the surface of the water. So here we can see the Holy Spirit was there during creation and the moment the father declared,’ let there be light’ the Spirit of God went into action to put on the switch. Jesus Christ promised us he will send another comforter to comfort us when he was departing the earth. Today we have the Holy Spirit here with us to guide us into our glorious destinies. Please open you heart today.

    I want to share with you today about the 7 Spirits of God. Are there 7 Spirits? The Holy Spirit is one but has 7 basic functionalities otherwise known as the 7 Spirits of God. I want to open your eyes to the multi-dimensional roles of the Spirit of God in the life of a believer. But before I proceed I want to lay a very important foundation because it is quite important.

    I hope you have received Jesus Christ into your life because it is the prerequisite to receiving the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues; If not, I will like you to embrace Jesus Christ today, he wants to be the lord of your life and he is our access to the Holy Spirit. It doesn’t matter what you have done, God is willing to accept you today. The bible says for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Life without Christ is full of crisis, Jesus is here today with his stretched out arm asking you to embrace him. Please understand only God can give you true happiness and he is the only one that can give you joy. No amount of worldly activities be it at Dubai or Milan can give you joy, it can only come from God. There can be temporary moments of fun but after all is said and done, you’ll have to face the challenge. Please stop trying to spend money on the affairs of this world to get happiness because no amount of alcohol, women, food or vacation will give you joy.

    Let me share a personal experience with you today: while ministering in a fellowship I decided to teach on the Holy Spirit; after the teaching session, I began to lead them in prayer to receive the Holy Spirit. Mid-way into the prayer, I had a leading in my spirit to lead them to Christ, I ignored the prompting because I assumed wrongly they should have received Jesus into their lives. After some few minutes the message came again to lead them to Christ, this time around I stopped and asked: how many of you are born again? To my utter dismay only two hands were in the air. The Holy Spirit was responsible for the information because the bible says, for as many as are led by the Spirit of God; they are the sons of God. There is no way the Holy Spirit would come into a sinners life, that is the reason the Holy Spirit told me to lead them to Jesus before he could come into their lives.

    If you have not accepted Jesus Christ, Please say this short prayer:
    Heavenly Father, I come to you today in the name of Jesus, I believe Jesus died for my sins and on the third day rose from the dead. I accept Jesus as my personal lord and saviour. Jesus come into my life. I believe I am saved. Please take note, a change has occurred in your spirit man because it has received illumination from God; nevertheless, your body must be subdued and your mind must be renewed daily with the word of God. It is a process but you will get there.
    Now to receive the Holy Spirit into your life it is the same process because for every one that asketh receiveth.

    I want to share my experience with you: more than a decade ago, under the ministry of Bishop David Oyedepo, he told those of us willing to receive the Holy Spirit to come out. I joined those who went forward for the empowerment, after we opened our mouth and prayed for the Holy Spirit to come into our lives, some started speaking in tongues which is a manifestation of the Spirit. Those who ‘hadn’t received’ were told to remain while those who had received were told to go back to their seats. The prayer sessions continued and more people received and it started getting embarrassing for me because we were very few left.

    Something happened, one of the ministers said something profound on that day, he made us realise, the moment we asked the Holy Spirit to come into our lives, he entered. Please take note that the Holy Spirit never muscles anyone, he will never go against your will, he is a gentle Spirit. If you don’t want him in your life, he will stay away. Now he said another interesting thing, ‘open your mouth and begin to speak by faith’. That was what broke the ice, I along with others were waiting for the Holy Spirit to speak but it is not so, we have to do the speaking and the utterances will flow. I was waiting for a physical manifestation even though I had received perhaps 30 minutes before the pastor gave the explanation. I opened my mouth and began to speak albeit a syllable. Later the devil tried to deceive me by making me feel, I was saying rubbish, I simply told him to let me be because the ‘rubbish’ was never in my spirit before then. As you speak, the tongues will get better. Please lay aside every weight that can hinder you, open your mind, and humble yourself before God.

    Please take a moment to read from the gospels before you say the prayer.
    And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: HOW MUCH MORE shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? (Luke 11:9-13).

    Please say this short prayer: Your Word says that if I will ask I will receive the Holy Spirit, so in the Name of Jesus Christ, my Lord, I am asking You to fill me to overflowing with Your precious Holy Spirit. Jesus, baptize me in the Holy Spirit. Because of Your Word, I believe that I now receive and I thank You for it. I believe that the Holy Spirit is within me and by faith I accept it. Now, Holy Spirit, rise up within me as I praise my God. I fully expect to speak with other tongues as you give me the utterance.

    Now begin to thank God for filling you with the Holy Spirit and begin to praise him. The tongues will start rising up within you, open your mouth and begin to speak, it doesn’t matter if it’s a syllable, that is the way you start typical of a baby learning a new language. Continue to speak for as long as you like.

    I will be talking about the 7 Spirits of God in the next piece, its important you get a proper perspective and foundation before I go into it.

    THE HOLY SPIRIT 

    The most important pillar of your destiny is the Holy Spirit. Please take into cognizance, this piece will be focused on the role of the Holy Spirit vis-à-vis fulfilling your glorious destiny.

    The most important person in the world is the Holy Spirit, hence you can’t achieve any meaningful success without him. Jesus Christ couldn’t step into his ministry until he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. One of the ingredients to a successful career in life is awareness and it is impossible without the Holy Spirit.

    The bible makes it clear in Ephesians 2:10,” For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” So we can see clearly we are the instruments of God and he has a program for us even before we were born as attested to in Jeremiah 1:5. But it takes the Holy Spirit to reveal the plans to us.

    Jesus knew his mission on earth with clarity and he declared it in a remarkable manner as outlined in Luke 4:18,”The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free.” But I want you to observe carefully the first thing before declaring his assignment, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me’. So you can see here the Holy Spirit comes into our lives helping us to discover our divine assignment and helping us achieve it. To further buttress this point, Paul made a similar statement in 1 Corinthians 2:9,10,’’ But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.’’ It is clear that you need the Holy Spirit to reveal the plans of God for your life.

    Your relationship with the Holy Spirit is the gateway to a life of exploits. The Holy Spirit is a regulator of destinies. Imagine your pressing Iron without one, your guess is as good as mine. Saul was wild because of the absence of the Spirit of God in his life, Peter was a coward because of the absence of the Holy Spirit but everything changed when the Spirit of God came upon him. Life with the Spirit of God is a life of exploits because the Holy Spirit guides us into all truth. (TO BE CONTINUED)

    YOUR PURPOSE 

    Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations (Jeremiah 1:5)

    I consider the second pillar of your destiny your Purpose, which can simply be defined as the reason for a thing. You need to discover your purpose in life to achieve greatness. God created you for a specific purpose on earth. Your purpose is not your decision; God made it clear to Jeremiah he was ordained as a prophet even before he was born. Your purpose can also be described as your Assignment.

    Sequel to the last post, Your purpose is the reason for your gift. Your Assignment in life is the reason for your makeup. A lot of people are frustrated today because they are not working on their God given assignment. Peter was a fisherman who felt he was doing the right thing until frustration knocked on his door. His Assignment was to fish for souls not for fishes,hence dejection came because he was out of place. No matter how long you do the wrong thing, it will never make it right.

    Another example is Apostle Paul, as Saul he went on a frenzy persecuting Christians with so much vigour and passion. Indeed he had a powerful drive deposited in his system courtesy of his assignment but he was doing the wrong thing until Jesus rescued him.

    Your Assignment in life could come in different ways, it could manifest via a crisis because you,re born to solve a problem. Esther found herself at the center of a crisis which threatened to exterminate her people. A very remarkable statement was made by Mordecai to Esther in Esther 4:14,” For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” God has put you in that position for a specific purpose, you may not like where you were born but it’s for a purpose. God took Esther to the palace to save the Jewish nation from extermination. It is also worthy to mention that if you don’t do your work God can have you replaced as he did with Elijah. Elijah ran for his life to the cave because of Jezebel; God visited him in the cave and asked him what he was doing there because he was supposed to be working not hiding. God told him to go and anoint Elisha in his place.

    You are not sent to everyone hence everyone will not appreciate you. Jesus Christ was not appreciated in his hometown so he went to Capernaum. Moses was sent to the Israelites, Joshua was Assigned to Moses, Peter was sent to the Jews and Paul was sent to the Gentiles. Every time Paul went to the Jews he regretted it because he wasn’t sent to them.

    Whose pain do you feel? Moses saw an Egyptian fighting his kinsman, he joined the fight. What gets you angry? There is no healing evangelist that loves sickness, neither will you find any deliverer like Moses cuddling oppression. What are you passionate about? Jeremiah couldn’t help but preach the gospel. What do you love? God gave us Jesus because of his love for the world.

    All the challenges you’ve gone through and the ones you are facing right now is because of your purpose. Your assignment requires training; God will take you through so many challenges to equip you for your Assignment in life. Your Assignment will unfold in stages, it won’t be revealed in a lump. Jesus Christ went through 30 years of training for 3 years of ministry, Moses received training for 40 years under Jethro for 40 years of ministry,Jerry Savelle was a protege of kenneth copeland for several years just like other ministers and artisans trained under a mentor for knowledge. That’s the same reason we go to school to be trained and equipped in our respective professions.

    If you need any clarification and insight about your purpose, get on your knees and ask the creator he will tell you. I will be talking about the Holy Spirit in the next post. Shalom

    YOUR GIFT 

    A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men (Proverbs 18:16)

    But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. (1 Corinthians 7:7)

    I want to share something very important with you today. There is nothing more important than your destiny because that’s the reason God created you.

    There is a purpose for your existence. The most important thing I want you to know is that God has a glorious destiny for you but it takes knowledge to fulfill your destiny because it is not automatic. There are certain pillars of your destiny- I wish to focus on your gift in this piece.

    God has equipped every man with a unique gift which is the tool required to fulfil your destiny in Christ Jesus. The bible speaking in 1 corinthians 7:7, makes it clear everyone has a unique gift. I will like you to understand your greatest limitation will come in the form of Ignorance and your biggest success will come on the altar of knowledge.

    Your stardom is tied to your gift: Michael Jackson became famous via his gift of dancing and singing lovely melodies, Billy Graham is a renowned evangelist, Bill Gate is a computer wizard, Steve Jobs…

    You don’t need to be worried about fame in life, all you need is to discover your gift. Your life will be filled with anguish if you don’t know your gift but it’ll be filled with sunshine if you know the gift God has deposited in your life. Often times I hear people complain about stiff competition as the reason for their failures in life or business- nothing can be farther from the truth, the bible declares emphatically, the gift of a man MAKETH ROOM for him and bringeth him before great men (Proverbs 18:16). It simply means in your sphere of influence, the discovery of your gift will set you apart from your peers and competitors.

    God doesn’t want you to struggle in life, your gift is fun, it is not stressful. A dog doesn’t struggle to bark, a fish doesn’t struggle to swim… Jeremiah became discouraged in his walk with God and he decided not to proclaim the good news any longer, however he couldn’t stop preaching. Jeremiah uttered a remarkable statement in the course of his struggle-Jeremiah 20:9,” Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.” Jeremiah couldn’t stop serving his gift because there is tremendous energy to exercise our gifts.

    Passion is a pointer to your gift- Apostle Paul had a crazy drive which was used to persecute Christians because he didn’t know the purpose for his gift. It was the same gift not a different one he used to proclaim the gospel when the lord got hold of him. All the good lord did was to give him proper direction for the efficiency of his gift.

    Your gift distinguishes you from all others irrespective of similar professions, callings and assignments. Though Peter and Paul were Apostles, they had different assignments and jurisdictions. Paul was sent to the Gentiles while Peter was sent to the Jews.

    I heard severally from diverse people over a period of time, there’s a unique ability we possess than others in the universe. It was quite difficult to comprehend at a certain stage in my life that there’s a specific area I have more wisdom than others . All that changed one day, thanks to the Spirit of the living God who expounded more on this subject to me. Let us go to the book of life and study the case of the 4 Hebrew boys who were held captive in Babylon.

    The bible makes it clear in Daniel 1:17,” As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had UNDERSTANDING IN ALL VISIONS AND DREAMS.” Emphasis is to highlight that God blessed all the Hebrew boys with knowledge and skill but only Daniel could understand all visions and dreams. There is something God has given you that others do not have. It is your assignment to discover it. If you will ask God he will tell you, nevertheless I do believe your gift is at the tip of your fingers, it is there for you to see if you look closely.

    Your relevance in life is tied to your gift- Daniel and Joseph rose to the top albeit slaves in a foreign land by serving their gifts. I am not bothered about money because I know it is a byproduct of serving my gift. We buy tickets to watch our favourite artists perform because they are proficient in serving their gifts.

    Your gift can come in diverse form-it could be crafts you didn’t’ learn formally but by observation you have perfected it.

    If after a proper analysis of your interests, passion and zeal you still don’t know your gift. Go to God in prayer, he’s willing to reveal his plans and purpose for your life which can only be achieved with your gift.

    Your gift must be discerned, but more importantly it must be refined as well. You must continue to do what you love to do, polish it and serve it to the world because we are waiting for you.

    Good morning and have a lovely day.

    PHASE 

    God has promised every believer a glorious destiny which is accessible in Christ Jesus. This doesn’t in any way prevent challenges from coming our way because it’s a way of life. I will like to take you through a biblical character because we’re admonished to be followers of those who by faith and patience obtained the promise.

    Life is in phases and you must get a perfect understanding of the different phases to fulfill your glorious destiny. The men of Issachar are credited with a peculiar understanding of the times hence they became leaders of their kinsmen. I want you to know you will go through more challenges than unbelievers because we’re at war with the devil. I have good news for you because Jesus defeated the devil 2,000 years ago.

    The bible makes it clear we’re royalty hence we’re supposed to reign on earth. If this is the case how come suffering and pain comes our way like God doesn’t even exist? There are situations that could depict God is no longer in the picture in our lives. God promised Abraham the fatherhood of the Nations but it took 25 years for the fulfillment of the promise. During those 25 years God took him through a process to be able to reign and handle the responsibilities.

    God calls those things that be not as though they were. Joseph saw a glimpse into his future and it appeared he was foolish to tell his brethren of the dream. Joseph was sold into slavery and he ended up in the court of Potiphar where the Grace of God on his life elevated him to the leadership of the house. It doesn’t matter where you are if God is with you for all you need is God to meet your needs.

    The devil reared his ugly head via Mrs Potiphar but Joseph refused to give in to the devil. He was imprisoned courtesy of the false allegation. Joseph also became the leader of the Prisoners because God was with him. The gift of God will always make room for you and bring you before great men hence, Joseph was brought before Pharaoh to interprete a dream his magicians couldn’t comprehend. As a result of this epic interpretation and level of wisdom Joseph was elevated to the position of the Prime minister.

    When famine broke out Joseph’s brothers came to buy food in Egypt where they had to bow before Joseph by virtue of his status. Joseph remembered the dream he dreamt at this stage after so many years. Please take into cognizance he was 30 years when he became the Prime minister but he had the revelation as a young boy. Joseph suffered hatred, slavery, imprisonment but finally the vision came to pass. God will take you through a process to fulfill your destiny, it is often a painful process but at the end the vision shall speak.

    Perhaps you are feeling down because of your present status or the hardship you’re experiencing, I want you to know it is only a process and if you will stay glued to God and not sell out to the devil you will excel. The vision is for an appointed time but you need to go through a process of preparation to sit on the throne. You will get there in Jesus name. AMEN
