FAVOUR IS NOT ALWAYS POSITIVE AND WORTHY OF LAUGHTER AND CELEBRATION AT FIRST….
APOSTLE JOSHUA SELMAN
Someone is going through something now that you cannot explain and by every standard you cannot explain. Every time you pray it looks like what happens… God where are we going now? people ask you why did you come to Lagos you say I’m not even sure; I think I was coming to check somebody and just cry my heart that’s how I got here oh. The Lord sets favour… listen to me I’m inspiring you. Men will laugh at you but tomorrow the sun, the moon and the eleven stars must bow. You don’t look like it now; sometimes they will call you and say you are a useless child I’ve always known that this your seeking God you’ve been a graduate for five years acting like a fool, behaving stupid and you go back to God with that report and God is silent. I want you to know that when God is silent learn to hear the voice of silence. Silence is a voice; it speaks. When God is silent He is saying something… are we together now? that’s my inspiration.
We walk by faith. Not everything in your life can be explained and if you allow carnal men to help you interpret your life they will take you out of Egypt to go and meet your father which will look like a testimony but then you would have aborted the throne. If someone wanted to help Joseph will he help him to meet Pharoah? no.
If someone wanted to help Joseph he will try to smuggle him out back to Jacob and Jacob will say thank you you’ve given me my son but Israel will die, Jacob will die, the covenant will never work. Beware of those who love you too much to allow you get to the place of destiny. There are people who love you too much; they look at what you are going through and it looks like they love you too much they will suggest and say is it worth it? we can go back and someone is almost there and the devil will try to use… you know satan can use positive attributes about people to still destroy you. Satan can use a man’s compassion to be a weapon against you. Look at what happened to Peter; no, Jesus I love you I mean… it was the compassion of Peter that was being used by satan and Jesus said no. If you are not a man of the spirit you will say Jesus you are harsh what kind of person are you? get thee behind me satan; that’s not compassion he’s taking the vulnerability of Peter and using it to manipulate Jesus away from the cross. Listen, pass through whatever you have to pass through knowing that although it may not make sense it is still called favour.
Favour is not always positive and worthy of laughter and celebration at first. There are pathways my brothers and my sisters that is so rare God is passing you. You are working your way to your sabbath. By the time you get to that dimension you will sit in a seat that no power can take back. The pain is a track record.
There are men today the only thing prospering them is their stories not their new revelation. They go all around the world continually inspiring people with a story they’ve been saying for many years and you will be wondering, are you not tired of this story? the question is who else has that kind of story? until they find a worthy replacement for that story that man remains at the top but when he was passing through that story he would never have known that that story has monetary value. Whenever they are organizing a conference that requires someone with that kind of track record they search around. They are tired of inviting him. Every year they are inviting him but the question is who else? Joseph said let the king search for a man who is discrete and wise. He was daring the king. I dare you search Egypt if you would find a man with my track record.
He was just using a polite way to dare him. I dare you search if there is any man who has been scandalized in Egypt; search if there is any man who has had the pain of rejection from his brothers; search if there is any man who has understood the pain of being innocent yet on the ground and the king said there is no man.
Immediately not later ah! immediately my brothers…
