Topic : HARVESTING…part 6
Text : Genesis 8:22
22: While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
The emphasis in part 5 is that most times, God places someone around one’s life to be a blessing, it might be your pastor, friend, relative, let me expatiate that: the reason I want to do this is because I am led to do so, and the fact that some people just choose friends carelessly, and break good relationships anyhow.
Harvesting is all about enjoying the fruit of your labour, but having wrong friends and partners might prevent you from enjoying harvest. I have been discussing from part 1 reasons why people don’t enjoy harvest. Our case study here is Joseph, in part 4, I shared how God blessed Potiphar the Egyptian, an idol worshipper because of Joseph, if you go through the Bible Potiphar was never mentioned again after Joseph left in his life, even when Joseph became King.
When Pharaoh discovered Joseph he put the whole of Egypt under his control look this; Genesis 41:41 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt. See the one that amazes me, hear what Pharaoh told Joseph in verse 44: And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.
Pharaoh’s wife must have challenged Pharaoh saying, ‘ how can you make sure a declaration about an ordinary slave? Where is the place of your heir to the throne ?’ And Pharaoh must have answered, ‘ you don’t know anything woman, Egypt can’t survive the tragedy that is about to befall her without this boy you called a slave ‘. Pharaoh’s chiefs must have grumbled about his decision, he must have told them, ‘ if you don’t like it, leave your office, that is my decision ‘.
Pharaoh understood that there are some people a man must keep around his life if he must fulfil his destiny, he was quick to know that God has sent Joseph to save Egypt at that time. You see most times when we pray, God uses people to answer our prayers, but if you have kept those people away, you might be doing yourself a great harm. It is important you watch who you keep around your life.
I once had revelation about a sister, who travelled and couldn’t be reached, I shared with my brother and we prayed to avert it, when she came back, she told us she was very sick, and in the course of that sickness someone told her, ‘ you would have died, but there are 2 strong men besides you.
I am not saying you worship those men, but understand that God has placed them around you to be a blessing to you, just as you are a bless to others, most times, a pastor plays this role, but not necessarily a pastor sometimes, a friend or relative.
Let’s confirm that in new testament:
Mark 9:14 Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
15: And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.
Jesus was the covering for the disciples in the above passage. Keep destiny partners and helpers around your life. Keeping wrong people around you won’t make you enjoy the fruit of your labour. God bless you.
* Connect me Lord to destiny helpers and partners in Jesus name.
