TOPIC: JOSEPH AN EPITOME OF SEASONAL RELATIONSHIP

Scripture: Genesis 37: 13. And Israel said unto Joseph, Do not thy brethren feed the flock in Shechem? come, and I will send thee unto them. And he said to him, Here am I.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter!
It has been confirmed that relationships are the currency of life as they represent true riches. You are not rich enough until you are rich in relationships. Today we shall examine the life of Joseph as an epitome of seasonal relationship.

The life of Joseph could be divided into three parts.

They are;
1. The relationship between Joseph and his immediate family(Gen.37); Joseph had a cordial relationship with his siblings and his father.

Although, his siblings hated him because of his dream yet Joseph never showed hatred for any one of them. Joseph’s loyalty to his father was not in doubt because he was willing to run errands for his father.

Genesis 37: 13. And Israel said unto Joseph, Do not thy brethren feed the flock in Shechem? come, and I will send thee unto them. And he said to him, Here am I.

Beloved, understand that the period of running errands for your dad and mum is for a season!

Many have aborted that season because they were unwilling to be sent. If your loyalty to your parents is in doubt, you have sown a very bad seed that must produce a harvest for you tomorrow. You will not be in your father’s house forever, so while you are there be willing to run errands for your parents.

2. Relationship between Joseph and Potiphar (Gen.39); Joseph had a sound relationship with his boss even though he was bought as a slave, he never allow the slave mentality to deter him. He was able to proof his integrity within a short period that made him to be promoted as a general manager of Portiphar’s investment.(Gen.39:1-4)

Beloved, your relationship with your boss when you are given free hands to operate matters, you must show a sense of probity always.

There are those that are given such a priviledge like Joseph and they messed up! They either mess up with finance or sexually with the women.

Joseph had the cheap opportunity to enjoy sex with his master’s wife and still remains as the General Manager but he refused because he understood that his stay on that job was for a season. If Joseph had slept with Portiphar’s wife, he wouldn’t have arrived at the place as prime minister. Don’t destroy your future now with the alluring invitation of sexual immorality.

3. Joseph relationship with prison inmates(Gen.40;1-15) : It was such a precious one because Joseph understood the law of times and seasons. He knew that nothing lasts forever, life is designed with phases of different season.

So, he treated other prisoners with much love, respect and care helping them to interpret their dreams. It was one of them that he interpreted his dream for that later introduced him in the palace.

Beloved, are you in a prison condition right now, please understand that it is just for a season, whatever you are going through right now is just for a season.

The relationship you maintain in your dark season could be the ladder to your rising up out of that prison. Instead of feeling depressed and full of bitterness why not maximise the moment by making friends and adding value to lives. It is possible that God brought you to the prison to grant you a connection to the palace. Don’t lose that connection with disregard to relationship.

Commited to building a sound relationship with people within your sphare of influence at every season of your life.

There are those who made quality relationship during their service to the nation(NYSC) as Corp members who are still reaping from that relationships for life. Job also had such a quality relationship with men of his sphere, and they are the first group of people that came out to meet him when calamity struck (Job 2:11).

Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. The rejection of Jesus and His atoning work equals hell. Give your heart to Jesus today

Prayer points:
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Father, I receive grace to build relationships with people at every season of my life in the name of Jesus.

Prophetic Declaration:
– I prophesy the wisdom to build profitable relationships receive it in the name of Jesus.
– Everyone that ought to help you that has forgotten you will remember you from today in the name of Jesus.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
