Are you a Joseph?
I know I am. It’s one thing to be spoken over you many times. It’s another thing to realise it.
Being in market place ministry is exciting but challenging as one is called out of Egypt and out of ones comfort zone. One is called to pioneer like Joshua bringing people into the Promised Land (Jesus). Egypt as Os Hillman writes in his devotional today, is the way of the world, the flesh. Living by striving and not by favour. Egypt is a life without Jesus. Hebrew word of Egypt means a land without grain or wheat. Without bread. Jesus is the bread of Life.
A stealth warrior often undercover, loving on everyone especially in the workplace where He has put you. Sometimes it’s like being in the lion’s den, but with the wrong lion.
Speaking the Truth when lies abound and deception and manipulation permeates the atmosphere.
Reminding, when serial amnesia or avoidant behaviour is in operation. Bringing patience, fairness and kindness when expedience and self aggrandisement towers over every matter. Above all bringing wisdom and peace when panic and irrationality reigns.
“Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple to lie in ruins?” Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways!
“You have sown much, and bring in little;
You eat, but do not have enough;
You drink, but you are not filled with drink;
You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm;
And he who earns wages,
Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.”
I will never give it up as the rewards are phenomenal. The favour He gives us far outweighs the cost.
My beloved is always alongside supporting, covering and counselling me. An amazing Deborah.
We are part of the remnant and proud of it, nomadic, led completely hour by hour by the Lord himself. That’s what being an apostle means.
We have had such welcome and love from the most unusual quarters in France. So privileged to be here carrying His Presence.
Moreover He called for a famine in the land;
He destroyed all the provision of bread.
He sent a man before them—
Joseph—who was sold as a slave.
They hurt his feet with fetters,
He was laid in irons.
Until the time that his word came to pass,
The word of the Lord tested him.
The king sent and released him,
The ruler of the people let him go free.
Seek spiritual prosperity and physical prosperity will follow.
3 John 1:2-3
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth.
My supernatural mentor John writing to his followers.
Our purpose is to bring transformation then everything prospers; the land, the people and the cities. Ed Silvoso is a good example of someone who has tirelessly worked teaching and bringing transformation all in the workplace with police politicians and businessmen. Os Hillman is another amazing example.
I bless all Josephs called to their roles for the Lord. I bless you with wisdom and understanding, patience and fortitude. It takes one to know one
