If God is in it, no amount of lack of support can stop it

Their support is minimum, their praise is minimum and their acknowledgement of you is minimum. Sometimes it takes a little while for you to recognize that those that ‘claim’ to have your corner are in actual fact at the side walk hoping for your downfall. Of course, they do ‘claim’ to want to see you do good but they hope you don’t become better than them. And that is coming from the spirit behind the person which is envy and jealous and being used by the devil to carry on  his conniving ways.
(Genesis 37:12-28) Joseph was one of the twelve sons of Jacob and he was his favorite because he was the son of his old age and the first child by his beloved wife, Rachel.

His brothers hated him and never spoke a kind word to him. Jacob made his son Joseph a richly ornamented robe. In that time, it wasn’t uncommon to have a robe or clock. Robes were used not only for warmth but also to bundle up belongings for trips, to wrap babies, to sit on or even serve as security for a loan. The robe became the prove that Jacob’s favoritism toward Joseph.
One day Joseph had a vision and when he told his brothers, they hated him even more. They couldn’t imagine Joseph’s vision coming to pass, the possibility of him being their ruler didn’t sit well with them. They became jealous that they end up doing the unspeakable, they went ahead and sold him into slavery.
Jealous is a sin, it is tyrannical and can lead to serious dangers. It is a dangerous sword that can harm your relationships, it can even kill. Jealousy drove the brother to do evil act against their own brother. Sometimes you don’t have to share your vision with just anybody. Not everyone wants to celebrate with you even if those who are in your inner circle, be careful. The brothers never wanted to be part of his success, they never wanted to support or encourage Joseph. No matter how unfair it sounds the good news is; that kind of behavior of people towards you, develops a strong character in you and gets you deep in wisdom. Don’t allow lack of support from some people to stop you to pursue what God placed in you. If God is in it, nobody can stop it. Be encouraged!

Psalm 27:1 “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war should rise against me, in this I will be confident.” 

2 Corinthians 9:8-11 “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, have an abundance for every good work.

 

 

One thought on “If God is in it, no amount of lack of support can stop it

  1. Today God will Stand for You!
    When He stood by Abraham, he became father of many nations. When He stood by Joseph, he had his dream fulfilled in spite of all the difficulties he went through. When He stood by Moses, Pharaoh was defeated. When He stood by Hannah, she became mother of a great prophet. When He stood by David, Goliath became dead. When He stood by Daniel, lions became his friends. When He stood by His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, death could not hold Him captive. When He stood by Paul and Silas, their chains were broken and the prison doors were opened. God will stand by you, your situation is receiving God’s attention today, and you are entering into your celebrations in Jesus Name.
