“Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the LORD tested him.” (Psalm 105:19)

Often, when God speaks a powerful word of destiny over our lives, it will seem that the exact opposite is happening, and that instead of smooth sailing, we run into storms. The above verse is about Joseph. He had a powerful prophetic DREAM about being put into a place of great authority — and then for years, it seemed that the exact opposite was happening. This was part of God’s plan. The trials he went through were actually meant to PREPARE and MATURE him, so that when the word came to pass, and Joseph was lifted up to a place of great authority, he would have the maturity and humility to move in that authority effectively. The same pattern happened in David’s life.

So my dear friends — do not be discouraged if the DREAM God has given you seems far from realization today. Continue to hope and wait upon the Lord. IN HIS TIME, HE MAKES ALL THINGS GLORIOUS!!!

“And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience INHERIT THE PROMISES.” (Hebrews 6:11-12)

And the good and effective thing about how Joseph believed and trusted is that even while in prison, he did not give up hope, but rather chose to minister in his gifting where he was, and in God’s perfect timing, he was lifted up and vindicated.
