Beware what you bind
And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home. And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me: And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out. And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled. And Joseph’s master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison. Gen 39:16-20.

Sometimes God allows your table to be shaken just to secure your attention and redirect your focus on His assignment for your life especially when He notices you are becoming too comfortable at a certain phase of your life to bother with the ultimate destination of His plan and purpose for your life. This can happen in a relationship, career or ministry.

Joseph was already seen as a champion in Potiphar’s house having overtaken those who were there before his arrival. His achievement was already a mega breakthrough when juxtaposed with his background of being a slave in a strange land. He enjoyed respect and comfort at that phase and possibly started telling his turnaround testimonies to everyone who cared to listen not knowing that he was still on transit according to Divine schedule.
It took God to shake his comfort table for him to be repositioned and realign to Divine schedule.

1. The evidence against him was real but the story was a lie- God May allow organizational or human conspiracy against you if your time in a place or relationship is up. Be sensitive before you begin to bind.

2. Joseph didn’t wait to argue with them knowing their minds were already set but allowed time to sort him out- You can never win a case in a place when your due time has expired and God has already gone into your next phase to wait for you. Allow the matter rest and let time vindicate you.

3. Just before you gather prayer warriors, engage in prayer vigils and show your scriptural dexterity in spiritual warfare against a threatening situation, first enquire to know Divine schedule for your life.

4. You can never win the right war at the wrong place. You may end up, wasting time, burning energy and draining your emotions in an attempt to prove your innocence.

5. Your next phase maybe temporarily painful but will surely give you a platform to meet and relate with those who will value what you have to offer.

6. Joseph became a challenge in Potiphar’s house when his season expired but a waiting solution to the palace prisoners. That some people see you as a burden does not mean you are not as a waiting solution to someone somewhere. You are someone’s answered prayer only when you can let go, look up and allow God make them find you.

7. When you appear helpless over a situation for which you are innocent and guiltless, stop fighting to prove your innocence, just relax and allow God perfect what He wants to do with your life.

Don’t be too quick to bind some situations or hold a shaking table, know the mind of God first.

Do all you can to never play into the hands of your adversaries by engaging in any form of compromise.

Never beg or force acceptance when you have done all you are meant to do but still can’t seem to please a person, people or system, God May be saying something you are not hearing.

You will never be a victim of human or satanic conspiracy!

You will never miss your Turnaround junction!

Grace for spiritual sensitivity always in Jesus name!
