Isaiah 43 v 18-19:
Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
It’s time to forget the former things. Move on! Forget the pain of the past and focus on the present blessing. The Father is giving inheritance out! It’s the double portion of the Father’s blessing that Joseph released over Ephraim and Manesseh. God makes you forget the past by giving you the double portion!
Genesis 41 v 50-52:
Before the year of famine came, two sons were born to Joseph. Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, bore them to him. Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh. “For,” he said, “God has made me forget all my hardship and all my father’s house.” The name of the second he called Ephraim, “For God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction.”
What you have been through in the last season has prepared you to rule in the place where you have been promoted for your appointed assignment. You have faithfully administered the gifting God has placed upon you. Potiphar’s house, with all its trials, was God’s chosen setting for Joseph to learn faithfulness in stewarding an entrustment. He did not defend himself or retaliate out of his hurt and pain.
God wants you to know that you have come through your trial; you have responded with a humble heart and your reward is an increase of favour. Facing accusation has not crushed you, but developed reliance upon God instead of on your own gifting. Now your gifts can be used to equip and promote others! Joseph’s interpretation of dreams released the butler back into favour and employment. God has taught you not to withhold your gift even when others are elevated and you are forgotten.
God has not forgotten you! He is placing your name into your new appointed assignment and putting your picture into the frame. Your release, your blessing, your promotion is already on the way.
Genesis 41 v 14:
Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they quickly brought him out of the pit. And when he had shaved himself and changed his clothes, he came in before Pharaoh.
It’s time to step into your new clothes, your new identity! A new mantle of authority is being released into your prophetic gift. New strategies and an abundance of heaven’s resources will increase you; you will be accessing and administering Kingdom riches! You are the key to those around you receiving blessing, promotion and increase of resources.
So it was not you who sent me here, but God. He has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house and ruler over all the land of Egypt.
The Lord says, ‘Josephs arise!’
- This is the year for Josephs to arise
- This is the year of God’s favour over my life
- I am arising as a Joseph in this new season
- This is my new beginning
- This is the time for me to be fruitful
- I will receive strategies from heaven
- I am the key to unlocking resources
- Stewardship and abundance are my key words for this year.
