THE DEVIL’S VISITATION
Text: Genesis 39:5, 7
“And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the Lord was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field. And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.”
Every appearance of the devil is usually motivated by something great he has either seen and trying to steal or coming forth that he wants to try and stop. The truth is when you are ordinary and empty, the devil stands aloof but once he smells something good coming, he shows up.
From today’s reading, have you considered why the devil had to wait until Joseph was promoted before he stirred up that unholy desire in Mrs Potipher? You don’t have to invite the devil before he shows up, the moment he sees or senses something great in you, he comes invitedly.
What are presently going through that seems tough and unable to handle? When you see the trial so high on your side, it is a pointer that something great is about to manifest in you or come your way. So, don’t forget this always: trial time is never the best time to give up.
REFLECTION FOR TODAY:
When you see the trial so high on your side, it is a pointer that something great is about to manifest in you.
I prophesy over your life that grace never to give up before your glory manifests is released upon you now in Jesus’ name.
