from a “palace” yet near a pit?

JOSEPH — THE MAN WHO WENT FROM THE PIT, TO PRISON, TO THE PALACE.
JOSEPH WAS FAVORED BY HIS FATHER AND WAS GIVEN A SPECIAL COAT OR ROBE AND HE WAS A DREAMER AND HE WAS HATED BY HIS BROTHERS AND WAS PUT IN A PIT.
ANYTIME YOU HAVE THE FAVOR OF GOD ON YOUR LIFE AND ARE A DREAMER – YOU CAN EXPECT TROUBLE FROM THE DEVIL. — NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE THERE WILL BE TIMES WHEN YOU GO THROUGH THE PIT BUT DONT LET YOURSELF DROWN IN THIS VERY SAME PIT.

am I in the pit?

BUT JOSEPH DID NOT STAY IN THE PIT, NO…… WHY? BECAUSE JOSEPH WAS IN THE “PIT” BUT THE PIT WAS NOT IN JOSEPH — JOSEPH WAS A DREAMER…. HE KNEW THE PIT WAS JUST A TEMPORARY SET BACK — HE KNEW THE FAVOR OF GOD WAS ON HIM AND HIS DESTINY WAS NOT THE PIT BUT THE PALACE.
AS A CHILD OF GOD YOU MAY GO THROUGH THE PIT BUT REMEMBER THE PIT IS NOT YOUR FINAL DESTINATION.
NO MATTER HOW BAD THE PIT MAY SEEM, YOU WON’T STAY THERE BECAUSE GOD MEANT FOR YOU TO BE A DREAMER AND THE PIT IS NOT IN THE PERMANENT PLAN THAT GOD HAS FOR YOU.

WHEN YOU ARE DOWN TO NOTHING GOD IS UP TO SOMETHING IN ITS GREATEST FORM IMAGINABLE!

IF YOU ARE IN A PIT YOU ARE NEXT IN LINE FOR A PROMOTION.  JUST TAKE A GLIMPSE OF A MAN IN THE OLD TESTAMENT NAMED JOSEPH; IN ONE DAY JOSEPH WENT FROM THE PRISON TO THE PALACE!

[LOSER CATEGORY, PERHAPS….] —YE OF WEAKENED FAITH? WE TEND TO  FOCUS ON WHAT WE ARE GOING THROUGH, INSTEAD OF BEING IN THE MINDSET OF CHRIST: AS CHAMPIONS FOCUSING ON WHERE WE ARE GOING TO?

palace or pit?

palace or pit?

HOW DID DAVID GET OUT OF THE PIT? HE PRAISED HIS WAY OUT OF THE PIT….

HOW DO YOU DO IT? — YOU PRAISE YOUR WAY TO VICTORY!

LIKE A GRENADE…. HOW DO YOU THROW A GRENADE? DO YOU JUST THROW IT? NO THERE IS A PROCESS.

FIRST YOU HAVE TO GRAB THE HANDLE…. AND PULL THE PIN—-[IF YOU GREW UP IN THE MILITARY, LIKE I DID]—YOU HEARD THE OUTDOOR NOISES OF COMBAT TRAINING FOR YEARS OF YOUR LIFE…..–NOW DO YOU JUST HOLD ONTO THIS GRENADE? —–NO,  YOU HAVE TO RELEASE IT. HOW LONG BEFORE IT GOES BOOM? HMMMMM……I AM THINKING ABOUT 10 SECONDS, WHICH DOESNT GIVE YOU MUCH TIME TO THINK TWICE, OR PASS IT ON TO WHOMEVER ELSE IS IN THIS PIT ALONG WITH YOU?

grenade

HALLELUJAH DID YOU HEAR THAT YOUR PRAISE IS LIKE A GRENADE; YOU HAVE TO GET THE HANDLE ON IT PULL THE PIN AND THEN RELEASE IT ON THE ENEMY.

RIGHT NOW BY FAITH TAKE HOLD OF YOUR GRENADE OF PRAISE, GRAB HOLD OF THE HANDLE AND PULL THE PIN AND THEN RELEASE IT ON THE ENEMY.

IN ABOUT 10 SECONDS YOUR GRENADE OF PRAISE IS GOING TO EXPLODE IN THE FACE OF YOUR ENEMY AND YOU ARE GOING TO FIND A WAY OUT OF YOUR PIT.

GIVE HIM PRAISE…. GET OUT OF YOUR PIT….. IT IS NOT PART OF YOUR LIFE IN A PERMANENT FORMAT…. GET OUT OF THAT PIT!

NOTE PSALM 40: 1-3…. MANY SHALL SEE IT AND FEAR AND TRUST IN THE LORD

WHEN THE WORLD SEES US PRAISING OUR WAY OUT OF THE PIT, IT SHOWS/BEARS HOW YOU AND I WILL “TRUST” IN THE LORD. WHEN YOUR FAMILY SEES YOU PRAISING GOD THEY WILL PRAISE GOD, BUT WHEN YOUR FAMILY SEES YOU LIKE THE PIT WHICH YOU ARE IN?  THEY WILL STAY IN THE PIT ALONG WITH YOU……SO CLIMB ABOARD THE LADDER IN WHICH GOD HAS PROVIDED AND GET OUT OF THE PIT!!
