I’ll have you know that You can thrive right where you are. Never give the devil the satisfaction of thinking that he has one up on you. Once the devil thinks you are down, he will trample you while you are on the ground. Too often we come up with reasons of why we cannot reach where we would like to. Stop it. Joseph thrived in Potiphar’s house. When he was removed from there and place in prison he thrived in prison. He could have sat down like most of us, and complained that he would be a success if he became the ruler that the Lord had called him to be, the ruler that he had dreamed of. Stop making excuses like most people do, “If only I had a better job, if only I came from a better area, if only I had better equipment.” Thrive with what you have, all you need God has put inside of you! Joseph did not have anything when he was sold to Egypt, he could have sat and complained about not having such and such, but he knew what was inside of him, and most importantly who was with him. Thrive with what you have, it’ll open doors to accessing what you need. Your gifts will indeed seat you with kings, however you do not start off with kings, when you thrive among the peasants and you’ll be lifted to the kings. Genesis 41:37-45. The stewards who thrived with what they had were given more. The one who made excuses had it all taken away from him. Matthew 25:20-21.
Father we give you glory for all that you have committed to us. Grant us the grace to be great stewards with all. We will thrive where we are. In the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
