Your Joseph Moments

IMG_0161Joseph was the beloved son of Jacob. His son by His true love Rachel, and He treated Joseph as such. He was set apart from his brothers even His robe, a gift from his father, was finely woven and made of many colors. He was hated by his brothers and one day betrayed by them and sold into slavery for twenty shekels. Then he was sold again to an Egyptian captain named Potiphar. Scripture records for us that while Joseph lived as a slave in Potiphar’s house that the LORD was with Joseph and He prospered him.  Later Joseph was falsely accused and imprisoned. While in prison the Holy Spirit records, the LORD was with him and He gave him success in whatever he did. You know how the story ends; God took Joseph from Prisoner –to- Right-hand Man to Pharaoh. Through Joseph’s promotion both the Gentile nations and his brothers were saved from famine and death. Joseph’s life served as a snapshot of our Savior Jesus Christ. Read full story of Joseph.

I think we’ve all experienced a “Joseph moment” at one point in our lives. One minute your up and everything is going well and then something earth shattering happens and your down in the dirt. Like Joseph, God’s intent is always to take you to the next level, to lift you higher. From fruit -to more fruit -to much fruit. Jesus will always meet you where you are but don’t expect to stay there. Expect Him to take you from glory to glory.

Wherever you are in life, know that this is a part of the process it’s not the final outcome. Set your eyes on the outcome not the twist and turns in between. HE Who Promised Is Faithful. God told you that He has a plan for you, plans to prosper you, not to harm you but to give you hope and a future. Just because you’re shipwrecked in a storm it doesn’t mean He’s changed His mind about you. See the bumpy roads and the shipwrecks as the tools that will sharpen you for the purpose that God created you for and the message He cultivated in you to impact this world and fulfill your destiny for Jesus Christ.

Just because you’re shipwrecked in a storm it doesn’t mean God’s plans for you have changed!

Whether you are birthing a new business idea, a ministry, a career, a new hobby or a little bundle of joy. Within you lies the ability to receive, conceive, nurture and bring forth new dreams, hopes, innovative ideas, great adventures and beautiful little ones.

Give a woman a shack and she’ll turn it into a beautiful home. Give a woman an idea and successful businesses are formed, books are written, songs are sung. Give her a call from God and new ministries are born. Give her a child and she will groom the next leader and world changer. Give her a husband and she’ll turn that frog into a prince  🙂 .

 Woman of God you represent the productive side of God; the creative side of Him. You are highly favored by Him, trusted with one of God’s greatest gifts, the gift of life. Trusted to carry and birth His very heart, His Son Jesus Christ.

There is nothing ordinary about you. You are loved, blessed and very much-needed in this world. You’re strong, beautiful and simply extraordinary! You are royalty, you are God’s Woman and His smile and favor is upon you.

 Happy Mother’s Day Mighty Women of God!
