Genesis 50:15-21 (20) – You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. (NIV)

A school principal sacked the longest-serving tutor and replaced him with a lady with whom he had affairs. Consequently, the tutor started home teaching and unknowingly taught a lad whose Mum was the state commissioner of education. The boy’s excellent performance in the exams brought the tutor a recommendation and was assigned as a director in the state education board. Later, during a recruitment exercise, the principal was seen on the queue waiting to be interviewed by the board.

Beloved, without a test there will never be a testimony. It is through the exam that we would get promoted to the next level. As seen in our Bible reading, the hatred Joseph’s brothers had for him was what propelled him to the palace. Therefore, know it that your challenges today are mere distractions; you will surely arise if you do not quit. When God is set to elevate someone, he may start with a trial as the case of David where he defeated Goliath (1 Samuel 17). Be Born Again!


Hymn: My faith looks up to Thee – Ray Palmer (1830)

1. Father, please turn my trials to my glory announcer (mention).

2. Lord! Give me good problems that will bring about faith-boosting testimonies.


1. Father, help me discover my divine purpose and the solutions that lie within and around me.

2. Letters of disappointment and disaster, packaged for me this year. Catch fire!

3. My name, complexion, height, career and talents, work in my favour.

4. Whatever will not allow my family, nation, the church and me to move forward. You the ground! Swallow them.
