PLANTED BUT NOT BURIED (4)
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*PLANTED BUT NOT BURIED (4).*
Gen 45:1-3 *Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren.*
*And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard.*
*And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; doth my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
In times of trouble, it is important to keep a positive mindset. To look into how we can ultimately solve all negativity.
Joseph cried behind closed doors, but the Egyptian heard his painful cry.
He had thought the doors to a good life were shut. His pains were not hidden, his grievances were not hidden .
He had dwelt in the dark, behind closed doors, not revealing who he was to his brothers
He, however, did not remain behind the closed doors, but he looked for a way to open up his hard feelings in order to facilitate new opportunities that have opened to him, his brothers, and father.
In difficult times, remind yourself to keep a positive and hopeful mindset and to look for the silver lining in such situations.
There is a blessing, an advantage that comes from a difficult or unpleasant situation.
If it is God who permits the trouble, there will be something good that will be found in a bad situation.
If the problems are created by you, He is able to bring you out.
Whatever life throws at you, it has only planted you for something to come. You can not be buried when God has not given you away to death.
Stay hopeful because you are still alive!
Instead of only focusing on the negative aspects of a situation, try to consider the ways in which you may ultimately find solutions.
*Call to Word action.*
Psalm 40:2 *He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
There is a unique attribute of God.
He gives you the grace and the ability to survive in challenges. He turns the table against challenging and painful situations.
Lord, my life shall be victorious testimonies in Jesus name.
Good morning all, and be blessed as you come into His presence today.
God bless you.
