We welcome you heartily to this New month of June 2019, a Month of increase and uncommon blessings. Please remember that God does whatever He promise irrespective of very hostile circumstances.
This was Joseph’s case while living in the midst of his jealous and hateful family members. Yet Proverbs 10:22 became a reality. We quote two versions below.
EasyEnglish version. “Good things from the Lord make you rich. And He does not make you sad at the same time”. Also ISV version says. “The blessing of the LORD establishes wealth, and difficulty does not accompany it”.
Joseph story is a good example of what God can do no matter those that surround you provided God is with you and you’re with or in Him. Romans 8:31; Psalm 118:6-7; 1 John 4:4 and let Hebrews 13:6 be bold and confidently confess always. This was Joseph’s belief and daily practice (confession).
Genesis 49:22-26. Note the following about Joseph’s life.
- Joseph is already declared a FRUITFUL VINE by a SPRING
- His branches RUN over a WALL
- Though HATED by his relations (BROTHERS)
- They tried unsuccessfully to shut him down
Yet because God was with him, He rendered their efforts futile. He was strengthened by the God of his father and equally helped by the same God.
He is already divinely Blessed.
The Almighty blessed him with heavenly blessings above. Including blessings of the deep below. Blessings of the breasts and that of the womb. Wow no wonder, they with all of their mischievous schemes failed woefully.
Likewise We are Blessed.
Understand that through Christ Jesus we equally declare we are blessed with our father Abraham’s blessings in Galatians 3:13-14. Read it for yourself in this BBE version. 13 Christ has made us free from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us: because it is said in the Writings, A curse on everyone who is put to death by hanging on a tree:
14 So that on the Gentiles might come the blessing of Abraham in Christ Jesus; in order that we through faith might have the Spirit which God had undertaken to give.
We pray, you realize same is our portion throughout June and the rest of our lives, amen.
Believe! Receive and Practice!
