Topic: A Send Forth Into Destiny [TREM 15 August 2018 Daily Devotional]
“And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmaelites came from Gilead with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to carry it down to Egypt.” Genesis 37:25
For Joseph brothers, selling him into slavery was the end of story for him. But that was the beginning of Joseph’s journey. When enemies have sealed their deal against you, they feel they have closed your case and sealed everything concerning your life, that is when your life is about to start. Child of God, I say your life will not end in the den of your enemy. It will not end because of the decision of the enemy.
They were selling him but it was a send forth. A send forth into destiny. Many things that people have done to you thinking that such will finish you but little did they know that it was your send forth. There is a destiny that God has for your life. The very people who plotted your downfall will hear your story and they will hear of your lifting. They sold Joseph because they didn’t want to bow before him. It was a wasted time because they ended up bowing before him. What God has written, is written. There is nothing anyone can do about it. Your enemy will bow before you. The Bible says evil will bow before us, the wicked will bow at our gate. That is the word of the Lord. That is your portion. It is already settled in heaven and the devil cannot unsettle it. Their portion is to bow before us. Witches will bow before you. Wizards and warlords will bow before you.
Joseph eventually became their saviour. I love God’s sense of humor. When God turns around and humiliates those who thought they want to humiliate you, only with your eyes you will see and behold the reward of the wicked. Just leave God in his class and keep loving Him. You will see what He will make of your enemies.
