Whoa! Some days I think I can’t go on another minute. I am tired and weary and then God shows up and changes everything with His Word. I understand to my core this morning that the Word is the Bread and it feeds me. And I am getting that the Word is the Daily Bread is His Body and it has fed me. With the Word I am overflowing. You know sometimes I am guilty of running around looking for a touch from someone, a prophesy, a word from someone I think has a better connection to God…but I learned this last night and it was reinforced when I meditated on the scripture this morning-the Word of the Lord is all I need. It is my prophesy!! It will not come back void. It is freely given. This is the Word of the Lord:
17 and he sent a man before them—
Joseph, sold as a slave.
18 They bruised his feet with shackles,
his neck was put in irons,
19 till what he foretold came to pass,
till the word of the LORD proved him true.
20 The king sent and released him,
the ruler of peoples set him free.
21 He made him master of his household,
ruler over all he possessed,
22 to instruct his princes as he pleased
and teach his elders wisdom.
2 The LORD was with Joseph and he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. 3 When his master saw that the LORD was with him and that the LORD gave him success in everything he did, 4 Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned. 5 From the time he put him in charge of his household and of all that he owned, the LORD blessed the household of the Egyptian because of Joseph. The blessing of the LORD was on everything Potiphar had, both in the house and in the field.
What I received from God through Pastor Cathy Feemster last night and through His Word this morning: When God gives a vision and a dream and then you speak it, just like Joseph, YOU WILL BE TESTED!! If it is a God dream then it is much bigger than your dreams could be. It will excite a part of you even if you don’t understand it all or how it will come to pass. THEN you will speak it and everytime you speak it, you will be tested. When it is a God dream things will come against it. Someone will oppose you, if not hate you. Others will feel threatened and instead of living in their own anointing and fulfilling their own dream, they will seek to destroy yours. They will try to steal it. Don’t fall for the lies and tricks of the enemy that would destroy you and quash God’s dream being fulfilled in and through you. In the midst of testing remember the dream you were given that you spoke so boldly of and have faith in the vision and in the midst of it all God will give you favor. He will work in mysterious ways. If it is a God dream then it is God’s vision and IT WILL COME TO PASS. It will come to pass and you will find that your speaking it and the favor but also even that time of testing was part of the dream being fulfilled. So stand firm even if you seem to stand alone and stand anointed.
Now that was what I call a really big breakfast and I am going to have to chew on this awhile and maybe once I do, I’ll even have come back and change some of these thoughts, don’t know… but this I guarantee- I am not skipping lunch!
