Good day to ya everyone. Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good. The title and content of the meal today speaks volumes, so I’ll let it do its job. Let this sink in deep..

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come before you on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ to ask that You would help us each day of our lives to remember to count our blessings and to concentrate on the positive, for it is not what life does to us, but rather our attitude that determines the amount of peace and joy that we experience. We know that all things work together for the good of those who love You and are called by You. Help us to cling to this and always to praise You. In Jesus’ name I pray,  Amen.

Let’s eat.

Losing Your Life for God’s Purposes

For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for Me will save it. – Luke 9:24 Today I am back at the story of Joseph. The story of his life is something I never get tired of getting a revelation from. When the time came for God to fulfill Joseph’s dreams, Joseph himself had virtually no interest at all in it. God wants to teach us a different set of values so that the kind of things we start out wanting becomes secondary. God has some things in mind for us that are far greater than the interest we began with. Joseph’s day of exaltation had arrived. Yet, through it all, a very real humiliation had to take place. We know about the humiliation Joseph had experienced for 13 years after being sold by his brothers into slavery, and then taken to Egypt. We know how he was falsely accused and cast into prison. Then there came along a different situation. Joseph had a triumph and was given an exaltation, but the kind he really never asked for. He didn’t appear to be all that interested in what was about to happen. He watched as the Pharaoh took his ring off his finger and put it on Joseph’s finger. Joseph never asked for that. All he wanted was to go home. He longed to go back to Canaan, to see his father, and to have his dreams fulfilled. Therefore, here we find an extraordinary absurdity: a humiliation in the heart of vindication. A triumph that was the opposite of everything he, himself, could have envisioned. Joseph wanted to go home, but a one-way ticket to Canaan wasn’t available. Before he knew it, he had Egypt in his hip pocket. He had never prayed for that. But God wanted Egypt. What God wanted is what Joseph got. Joseph was given something that he could be trusted with because it didn’t mean that much to him. I personally can relate to this kind of circumstance because I’m serving in my Egypt at the present time and it nothing that I prayed for but it’s what God wanted for me. <h3 style=”text-align: left;”>So if you are in a spiritual place that you haven’t prayed for, maybe you have been placed by the one that has power over every living thing.</h3>
