It is scripturally affirmed that when one is determined to get to a higher level or be somebody of importance in the society and can compliment same with discipline and diligence, dreams will be achievable. Paul, in his epistle to the Corinthians (1 Corinthians 3:6-7 cf Philippians 4:13) however elucidated further on that axiom, that determination, discipline and diligence will only guarantee result if it has the backing of the Almighty God. It therefore does not matter how much of conventional efforts one put into the things of life or the atrociousness of opposition from close or far quarters aimed at eliding God?s purpose for man, life or nation, the Almighty God has the final say, and His will shall superimpose other wills, schemes and desires (Romans 9:15-16; Ecclesiastes 9:11)
Joseph was a man that God loaded with horrendous moral cum spiritual abilities and prepared for the top. Israel in a show of love made him a coat of many colors which became the kickoff for strong antipathy by his brethren. To compound this envy and animosity, Joseph in obvious innocence, shared his dreams with the brethren that hated him (Genesis 37:7,9) which made them desire to truncate divine purpose and consequently sold him into slavery (Genesis 37:25-28). The will and desire of Joseph?s brethren was to annul God?s plan forgetting that the Almighty God has the capacity to disappoint the devices of the crafty so that their hands are forbidden from performing their evil enterprise (Job 5:12). From slavery, God took over, guided his steps and ordered his movement to the place of dream actualization. He was transited from the hands of the Midianites to the house of Potiphar, moved to the prison for an offense he never committed and from there he was catapulted to the highest position in Egypt. Beloved in Christ, it doesn?t matter where you are now and what you are facing, God has the capacity to, and shall, take you from where you are to where He has destined for you, in the name of Jesus.
At what junction are you presently in life? Are people ganging up against you because of your ?coat of many colours?? Are you being maligned and destroyed by people that are close to you as a result of your dreams? Has opposition been stirred against you by agents of darkness and kingdom of wickedness? Have you been sold out to a location where they opine that your star will not be manifest? Are you in trouble without having your hand in sin? Have you, even in your innocence, been convicted by powers that are superior to you or you have been consigned to the prison and it looks like all is lost? There is hope for you! The Almighty God has the final say, and not any man. Even if you have been tried in the court of public opinion and found guilty ? God has the final say.
When God steps into your life, He suspends opinion polls that have confirmed you as a failure and changes you from a perceived underdog to the favorite (Isaiah 60:15); when He steps in, He changes your story and reverses everything that has been against you. Besides, He will ensure that as people associate themselves against you, they are broken in pieces and as they gird themselves, the anointing of God shall break them into irreplaceable pieces. As they gather to take take counsel against you, their counsel shall come to nought and whatever evil word they have been spoken or speaking against you and God?s plan cum purpose for your life shall be made ineffective (Isaiah 8:9-10). This shall be your portion in the name of Jesus.
What you need to do is come to Jesus, confess your sins to Him, depart from every evil ways, trust in Him with all your heart and don?t lean on your understanding (cf 1 Samuel 2:9). In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear God and depart from evil (Proverbs 3:5-7). God shall frustrate every evil counsel against you and all yours in the name of Jesus.
