Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Genesis 41:50 - 42:38)
“From Slave to Governor”
Text: Genesis 41:55
“So when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread. Then Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph; whatever he says to you, do.”
“From Slave to Governor,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
After 13 years of slavery, and 7 years as Governor of all Egypt, Joseph stands as a picture of Jesus Christ.
“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,
but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.
And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Phil.2:5-11).
The brothers of Joseph tried to kill Joseph’s Dreams by selling him into slavery, and now Joseph’s Dream is being fulfilled completely, as Joseph has been exalted from Slave to Governor of the land!
Oh Hallelujah! What the enemy meant for evil God turned to Good! God works ALL things, good things, bad things, super ugly things, all together For Our Good. (Rom.8:28)
Instead of killing Joseph’s Dream the brothers fulfilled Joseph’s Dream!
The devil thought he killed the King of Glory, crucifying our Lord and Savior on the Cross - but he actually “fulfilled the Prophecy of his doom!” Jesus Christ paid our sin debt and then rose from the dead as the Conqueror of Death, hell, and the grave! Oooooh Rah!
This is the Wonderful work of God.
There still is a famine of hopelessness in this world today and the “food” of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Living Word of God, is available to anyone who would “bow down,” in confession and repentance of sin, and unconditionally surrender their life to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior!
Pharaoh told the people “Go to Joseph; whatever he says to you, do.”
Almighty God says to all mankind “Go to My Beloved Son Jesus Christ; whatever He says to you, do.” This is what Jesus says for you to do:
“that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Rom.10:9-10).
Because of our Commander Jesus Christ, you and I have been exalted From Slave to Governors and Joint-heirs with Jesus Christ Forever! (Rom.8:12-17). Ooooh Rah!
