MY STATUS IS CHANGING SUDDENLY
MAIN TEXT: 1 SAMUEL 2:8
“He raiseth up the poor out of the dust and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among Princes and to make them inherit the throne of Glory for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S ….”
“And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God; Many shall see it and fear, and shall trust in the LORD”.
God will do whatever He has purposed in His Heart to do, regardless of any obstacle on the way. We can see an account of Joseph who was sold into slavery in Egypt by his brothers, and as if that was not enough, he was also accused falsely and cast into prison, where he remained for some years until God’s time for his destiny came and took him to the throne as a second-in-command in the land of Egypt, even though he was a stranger there. His status changed automatically.
Are you passing through the furnace of envy and jealousy of those you consider to be your brethren? All you need to do is keep your focus on where God is taking you to. Some people give up on their dreams in the face of adversity. This is not right. Proverbs 24:10 says; if thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small”
Anyone who desires a change of status in his/her career, ministry, business or academics must acknowledge that in God’s created order, you cannot expect an output where there is no input, you must pay a price to obtain anything good in life. God is looking for those who will take a stand for Him as Joseph did.
YOU NEED TO ALIGN YOURSELF WITH THE AUTHOR OF YOUR DESTINY; JESUS CHRIST.
