TOPIC: WALKING IN LOVE DESPITE ALL ODDS
Scripture: Genesis 50: 20. But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! The Holy Ghost woke me up this morning reminding me of one of my cousins that lied against me, He told me, “you know how it hurts to be lied against, so you can share it with your world for all those who are walking in love that were suddenly accused falsely.” So I’m sharing on the topic walking in love despite all odds.
Walking in love is sweet when no one has ever accused you falsely! But there comes a time when you are wrongly accused of what you know nothing about.
They label you with a name that is not your own, they assassinate your character and now you have retorted to bitterness and refused to walk in love anymore, I have a good news for you today, your set time is come to be vindicated.
Dear young lady, you open your heart to love and people are just taking advantage of you and you got to a point in your life when you said, you don’t think there’s sincere love anywhere! And you have closed your heart against love. Please continue to walk in love despite the backstabbing and betrayal you may have gone through because your time of compensation is at hand.
Examples of people that walked in love despite all odds;
1. Joseph: The brothers conspired against him and sold him out to Egypt while they lied to their father that some animal had devoured him (Gen.37:20-34). In Potiphar’s house, the wife also lied against him of attempted rape
(Gen.39: 7-20) and that led to his imprisonment.
Yet, Joseph did not allow bitterness that could have come through those incidents to make him miss God’s blessings for him. When he was finally lifted up by God, he did not use his new office to punish all that were instruments to his going to prison. If it were some of us, we will deal with Potiphar’s wife squarely and then his brothers that sold him out. Here’s what Joseph said;
Genesis 50: 20. But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
Beloved, have you been lied against? Perhaps you were accused of being responsible for a pregnancy you knew nothing about!
Or you were accused of shady deals whereas nothing of such happened! Oh you were falsely accused of being responsible for a death you know nothing about etc!
The Holy Ghost is saying, forgive all those who lied against you and walk in love despite all the false allegations levelled against you and you shall soon see the glory of God.
2. Our Lord Jesus Christ: He was lied against by the religious leaders of His days(Matt.26:60-64). He never hated anyone of them but choose to walk in love. Jesus’ approach was not to pay evil for evil or insult for insult:
1 Peter 2: 23. Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
Beloved, you are praying for God’s lifting now, but right in your heart is a pay back plan of all those who have hurt you, those that made you cry, those that injured you emotionally etc. Holy Ghost is saying drop that list and choose to walk in love towards them. The earlier you drop your plans of revenge, the faster your lifting comes. So love despite all odds.
Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real. The decision of where to spend eternity is now. Don’t allow bitterness to denied you access to eternity with God.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord I receive grace to walk in love despite all odds in Jesus name.
Prophetic Declaration :
– I prophesy healing to every injured heart in the name of Jesus.
– Your delayed blessing is released now in the name of Jesus
– It is a new day!
From your brother Alex
God bless you.
