Topic: Your Story Will Change [TREM Devotional 15 November 2018]
“Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus saith thy son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto me, tarry not” Genesis 45:9 KJV
Joseph became the Prime Minister in Egypt. What he saw about himself finally came to pass. His brothers came and bowed before him just like he said. By this time, his brothers didn’t recognize him. He had to tell them: “I am Joseph”. His story has changed. Your story will change! By the time God is through with you, all your peers will not recognize you. Your detractors will not recognize you.
You see, Joseph’s brothers couldn’t recognize him but he could recognize them because they have not changed. They have not changed because they failed to see themselves the way God saw them. When you fail to see yourself the way God sees you, there will be no change. “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV)
In the midst of lack, what are you seeing? What are you seeing about your meal barrel? What are you seeing about yourself? Are you going to die in penury? What you see is what you will manifest. While you are in your one room apartment, are you seeing yourself in a flat? Are you seeing your dining table? Are you seeing your settee? Don’t ever forget; what you see is what you get. The devil is trying to make you paint a different picture of yourself with the present-day situation. You don’t belong there. You belong to the kingdom of great people. Your father is a great God. That is your root. Your root is the root of greatness. Don’t settle for anything less.
