FRIDAY, JUNE 1
Scripture: Genesis 44:1-4
When the Lord woke me up at 4:44 am, He said, “Look up the five passages that have 44 chapters and a 4th verse.” He said I would find the principles that qualify us for creative miracles. Four is the number that generally signifies the creative Hand of God. One of the first things we discovered about God was that He has never stopped creating. He is still just as much of a Creator today as He was in Genesis. Even the book of Revelation is full of creation, and the prophets spoke of things He would create as the appropriate season emerged. The book of Revelation speaks of a day when He will create a new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. But until we get to that place we have a harvest of nations to gather. We dare not assume the majority of the creative will be Priestly. Qualifying to move God’s judicial Hand in order to gain that harvest has to be a chief priority in this season! Joseph used his silver cup, a prized possession as an object to bring his brothers to deal with their previous betrayal. Joseph’s life had been one of numerous abject betrayals and adversity for at least a decade before the Lord redeemed it. God had to create a position for Joseph. Does God have to create a position for us? Are we in a place right now that is like prison? Are we experiencing betrayal, worldly judgments and seeming devastation? Joseph found himself baptized in adversity. He found his experience was just the opposite of his promise. The dream must have faded. His experience had to be grievous to the core. It is time to ask God to create the position that He has ordained all along for us to occupy by prophetic promise.
