Joseph was not a prisoner of Egypt, he was a prisoner of a prophetic promise by Lance Wallnau
Are you wishing God would deliver you? Change your circumstances? Fulfill your long awaited prophetic expectations? What if God has all along been preparing you for something different, something larger that required you to learn new skills and expand your integrity under pressure?
What if you have not done an altogether perfect job of handling the long season of seeming delays? Maybe screwed up? Fear not. The beauty of the Bible is its raw honesty. The month before the Upper Room, Jesus disciples fled and hid in fear. Peter, their most vocal leader quit the ministry after publicly denying he even knew Jesus and did so cursing like a backslidden sailor.
That’s what the prophetic promise “process” does. The heat refines the beauty of your character (like Joseph,) or brings up the impurity (like Peter) so you humble your soul and get rid of it. In the end, either way, the process leads to your promotion…if you just don’t quit.
This is not a bad event….this is a “process” event.
Wow. What an incredible way to see the story of Joseph. Often times what we think isn’t God’s plan (like being stuck in a place for a long time) is part of God’s perfect plan all along. This was just the reminder that I needed tonight. Thank you so much for sharing. Be blessed!
