NO ONE CAN STOP YOU!Does it seem a fact that everything or everyone is working against you? The truth and good news is, God causes, orchestrates and manipulates all things, situations or conditions to work together for our good, benefit and blessings, because we love and obey Him. Romans 8:28. The TRUTH, God's Word, ALWAYS change the FACTS of life for our good!I could relate to three remarkable people in scripture who had everything and everyone working against them and their destiny. I'm truly inspired and motivated by Joseph, Job and Jesus Christ! Now, let's consider Joseph. Just after two glorious prophetic dreams about his awesome and amazing destiny, glory and greatness, (Genesis 37:5-11) Joseph was stripped, assaulted and cast into a dry, dirty pit in some desert place far from home! And consequently forced on an impromptu, rigorous, hazardous, terrifying trip into slavery, into a strange home in Egypt, a strange land! Thinking it could never get worse, Joseph, like our Savior Jesus Christ, was falsely accused, chained and incarcerated in prison! By now, most people would have thrown in the towel, wallowing in self pity and given up their glorious dream, blaming and cursing God and everyone around them for their horrible misfortune. But, not Joseph! Never moved by the downward spiral of his dysfunctional life; though innocent, Joseph, like Job and Jesus Christ, continued to serve others, remained pure, faithful, prayerful, humble, compassionate, obedient, steadfast and tenacious in his walk, reverence and faith in God. Still hopeful, and trusting God in a hopeless situation. That's what God loved about him! Like Job and Jesus Christ, God would be showing him off to the devil and declaring, 'that's my boy, the one with integrity'!Seriously, three seemingly colossal, impregnable barriers from hell stood against Joseph, to disqualify him from achieving anything in Egypt, and to ensure that his great, foretold destiny came to nothing - in order to make God's Word a lie. BUT GOD CAN NEVER LIE! We will know and experience this truth when we stop speaking what we feel, see or hear others say, and start praying and saying only what God's Word says, then, we'll see and experience the healing, deliverance and miracles that Jesus Christ saw, experienced and performed because He only declared 'It's written, it's written, it's written!', and only spoke what He heard from His Heavenly Father. John 8:28.Interestingly, just as it was with Job and Jesus Christ, these obstacles became Joseph's stepping stone to his remarkably envious elevation! The same is also true of every child of God. Obstacles are our stepping stones. Tests produce our testimonies. In Christ Jesus, we're not victims, but victors and more than conquerors, always! Romans 8:37.THE THREE ENEMIES OF HIS PRPROMOTION.1)JOSEPH WAS A DESPISED FOREIGNER!Genesis 43:32.Joseph ate by himself, ……. The Egyptians sat at their own table because Egyptians despise Hebrews and refuse to eat with them.How could you hold down even the least menial job in a nation where you're despised, discriminated against, and hated; let alone attempt to dream or think of rising to the highest political office overnight?! Impossible, right? Absolutely not with Joseph or even you or me, because the God who takes great delight in doing the impossible is our Father - actually, our God Father!2) JOSEPH WAS A SLAVE.Psalm 105:17.Then he sent someone to Egypt ahead of them--Joseph, who was sold as a slave.Slaves have no rights, no wages, no inheritance, no dignity, no privacy, no health or life insurance and no future. Like any property acquired - a car, a tool, a pair of shoes or piece of furniture - a slave is used or even abused until it's worn out or useless, and then destroyed, discarded or abandoned - no police case, no legal case or questions from the authorities!3) JOSEPH WAS A PRISONER!Gen.39:19,20.After hearing his wife's story, Potiphar was furious! He took Joseph and threw him into the prison where the king's prisoners were held.In any civilization, prisoners and even ex-convicts are discriminated against, never trusted again, always rejected, avoided, slighted and mocked. They're tagged and marked suspects for life! Worse of all, Joseph bore the stigma of both slavery and a prisoner or jail bird, together! Naturally and realistically, Joseph had become a hopeless, notorious nuisance and outcast in the civilized economy of the Egypt of that time! Egypt was a world political, military and economic superpower!Nevertheless…..Genenis 39:2 - The LORD was with Joseph and blessed him greatly as he served as a slave in the home of Potiphar his Egyptian master.Genesis 39:21 - The LORD was with Joseph in prison, too, and he granted him favor with the chief jailer.THE PRESENCE, ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FAVOR OF GOD IS THE DIVINE LIGHT THAT SHINES IN AND THROUGH US, PULLING US OUT OF OUR SLAVERY, DARK PRISON CELLS AND SATAN'S STRONGHOLDS, PROMOTING, PROJECTING AND PROPELLING US INTO OUR GOD DESIGNED GLORIOUS DESTINY!Genesis 41:39-45cTurning to Joseph, Pharaoh said, "Since God has revealed the meaning of the dreams to you, you are the wisest man in the land!I hereby appoint you to direct this project. You will manage my household and organize all my people. Only I will have a rank higher than yours." And Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I hereby put you in charge of the entire land of Egypt." Then Pharaoh placed his own signet ring on Joseph's finger as a symbol of his authority. He dressed him in beautiful clothing and placed the royal gold chain about his neck.Pharaoh also gave Joseph the chariot of his second-in-command, and wherever he went the command was shouted, "Kneel down!" So Joseph was put in charge of all Egypt.And Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I am the king, but no one will move a hand or a foot in the entire land of Egypt without your approval."…So Joseph took charge of the entire land of Egypt.Whatever you're going through right now, whether it's spiritual, financial, marital, health related or whatever challenge, that's exactly what it is, a challenge, a test and a temporary situation. However, God has given you His infallible Word and promise, the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and the incredible power of the Holy Spirit to get you the victory and great promotion IN THE VERY PRESENCE OF YOUR ENEMIES, like He did for Joseph, Job and Jesus Christ our Lord. Your problem defeated, is your promotion. Hallelujah!
