Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional 21st August – No Disadvantage Whatsoever

(Everything Works Together To Your Advantage)

TO THE BIBLE: Romans 8:28
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

No matter what happens in life, you can never be disadvantaged. This is the life of the new creation in Christ: it’s not an assumption, and you’ve got to know it. The Lord gave His sovereign declaration in Romans 8:28 that all things work together for good to those who love God.

That’s why you ought to count it all joy when you go through any test, trial, or persecution, because the outcome is predictable—it will turn out to your favour and advantage.

Consider the man Joseph in the Bible: His brothers hated him and wanted to kill him, but they later sold him as a slave to a band of travellers, who, in turn, sold him to an Egyptian named Potiphar (Genesis 37). Potiphar observed that God had blessed him because of Joseph, and, as a result, he put Joseph in charge of his entire estate.

Things went awry for Joseph when Potiphar’s wife lied against him, and he was thrown into prison. However, right there in prison, the Lord was with Joseph and blessed him so that the jailer was pleased with him and put him in charge of all the other prisoners.

In time, God brought Joseph out of prison to become the prime minister of Egypt. Though a foreigner in Egypt, he became the head of government, subject only to Pharaoh. Who would have thought Joseph would have such honour, bearing in mind all that he went through? Only God can do such things.

It makes no difference the challenges you might be facing at home, in your school, amongst your friends, etc.; be comforted, because they’ll turn out to your advantage. The current unfavourable socio-economic conditions in the world cannot destroy you; therefore, refuse to be moved!

As the seed of Abraham, it’s your inheritance to soar in prosperity even in harsh times. No challenge can overwhelm you, because you’re a victor in Christ Jesus. Glory be to God!
