Just last night, I had such a mighty revelation, and as I lay in my bed, I heard the greatest sermon ever and after a huge cry, I saw a HUGE rainbow! Yaay! I will perhaps share more about the sermon by Danny Silk another day as I'm getting so much revelation from it up to now. And there are so many things I feel I am being prepared for and I'm still trying to piece together what God is telling me. But I'm seeing Him show me the way, and it is getting clearer. And it is looking GOOD! hahahaha!
I want to be like Joseph. I am aspiring to be like Joseph. As I read his story, I am filled with admiration for this mighty man of God. Not only did he not expose his brothers for being evil to him and for hurting him and destroying his life, even when Joseph was being victimised by his brothers and the opportunity came when he could have withheld grain from them and threw them in the dungeon, Joseph never once dishonoured his brother. No one ever got to know the offences his brothers perpetrated against him. Joseph protects his perpetrators with his mouth. He chokes back the tears and he is so hopeful the situation will turn out for good that he weeps alone, not wanting to expose his brothers.
And that blew me away. This man knew his identity. He was confident in the dream God gave him despite the circumstances. His evidence of forgiveness was unconditional, he moved towards his brothers with supply, grace and honour and gave them what they did not deserve.
Ultimately we rest in unforgiveness because we dont believe God. God restores all things, and hope gets extracted from you when terrible things happen. We believe that man have more power than God (and we have lost everything) and we feel the need to take things into our hands so that justice is served. When bad things happens, our innocence is robbed and we lose our dreams. But until we actually believe what Joseph believes, which is no one can rob me of something which God cannot restore, then we start to be able to release the idea that we have been ripped off.
Learn to see you offender in the way God sees them, like how Jesus, before he died, said "forgive them father, for they know not what they are doing".
There's heaps more i can go on, but I have a very busy day today! LOL
