|And they took Joseph’s coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat in the blood;|
|32 And they sent the coat of many colours, and they brought it to their father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it bethy son’s coat or no.|
|33 ¶ And he knew it, and said, It is my son’s coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.|
|34 And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for his son many days.|
This is one of the greatest examples in the Word of God that shows us the deception of Fear.
Jacob just “knew” that his beloved son was dead. He even mourned for him many days.
Have you ever wasted days, maybe weeks, or months, mourning because of fear?
The disciples of Jesus experienced false evidence that dreadful day that they watched their Master and Friend take his last breath. It appeared all Hope was lost…..
BUT GOD, had already sent the Word ahead of the evidence.
Joseph had been prophesied to in a dream about His Future, and Jesus, Our Lord, was written about beforehand all throughout the Old Testament.
The Pit And Prison couldn’t hold Joseph, and the Grave couldn’t hold The King above all kings, even death itself.
So, what kind of pit have you found yourself in my friend?
That’s NOT your permanent residency.
No, you’re just passing through, even though it may appear your closed in.
How do I know?
Because there is a Prophetic Word over your life.
Let’s Look at your future; according to what is WRITTEN;
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11
““Even now,” says the LORD, “Turn and come to Me with all your heart [in genuine repentance], With fasting and weeping and mourning [until every barrier is removed and the broken fellowship is restored];”
JOEL 2:12 AMP https://www.bible.com/bible/1588/jol.2.12.amp
( this was today’s bible app verse: confirmation)
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1Timothy 2:4
Whether you or someone else got you into a pit, doesn’t matter.
Look to the One who draws you Out by His Word.
Forgive yourself and forgive others.
Allow the restoration process to take place.
In both of these accounts, Joseph and Jesus, went on to be a blessing to their families.
You and I, in Christ, are part of that family!
