I am excited to share my thoughts today concerning ” Loss and Recovery.” I encourage you to get excited when you “recognize” trouble heading your way. This means we will need to renew our thinking starting right now. We all know that feeling, amen, of trouble on the way. Yes, I said get excited; not about the trouble itself but about the blessed outcome that the Father has, already waiting for you “IF” you believe.
(1) Joseph experienced loss because of his dreams of ruling over his family; dreams misinterpreted by his brothers targeting him for death, but God was divinely positioning him to save Israel out of slavery. Don’t you know the Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of all of Egypt, putting his own signet ring on Joseph’s finger adorning him with his fine linen and a gold chain. What!? Yessss. The very people that you do not identify often possess access to your successes through favor.
(2) Job lost fortunes and because of his loyalty, perseverance, faithfulness and patience was delivered and received double what he started with. God is a multiplier. Beloved we must press forward even when we don’t understand what is happening to us.
(3) Moses was insecure in his identity, uncooperative, unwilling to do what God called him to do, filled with excuses for “why not.” God used him. He will use you.
So Beloved I need you to process this right now, this day, this hour, this moment. The Father has already equipped you and “re-covered” you. You are re-stored, equipped, filled back up, spilling over. I charge you to pay attention today all around you and recognize what the Father is positioning you for. Fear not beloved. It’s your time to shine with the light of the most high.
