Text: Genesis 45:25-26

“And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan unto Jacob their father, [26] and told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob’s heart fainted, for he believed them not.”

Greetings of divine freedom to you dearly beloved reader wherever you are joining us to share this word of life.

We trust God on the authority of His living word in Psalm 32:7 that says:

“Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; Thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.”

Today’s focus is on ‘Joseph Is Yet Alive’. Joseph was born by Jacob through the love of his life named Rachel after a period of barrenness. So, Jacob really loved Joseph his son and made a coat of many colours for him.

This same boy was suddenly pronounced dead having been supposedly killed by a strange animal when he was sent to check on his brothers by their father.

But all of a sudden, the same people who brought the message of his death were the same people who also announced to Jacob that he was now alive and ruling over the whole Egypt!!!

Those who spread wrong or wicked news about you will be forced by God to announce your testimony in Jesus’ name.

Joseph is yet alive could mean:

A. Your lost hope is now restored.
It is written in Job 14:7, “For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, And that the tender branch thereof will not cease.”

B. The opportunity you have missed has come back to you. To say Jacob missed the opportunity to fellowship with Joseph is an understatement.

For that to be restored is surely a source of joy to him. Therefore, every opportunity you have missed in life, God will mercifully restore to you fully in Jesus’ name.

Joel 2:25 authoritatively declares: “And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.”

C. Your hidden star has been brought out to shine. Joseph who was born by the woman Jacob loved so passionately was also destined by God to be the star of the family. The one who will announce and make the name of the family known.

In every family there are budding stars and reigning or current stars. When the family star is cut down, such family will be in obscurity for a long time. Imagine what happened when a King was to be anointed in Jesse’s house, the enemy made them to keep their star away from home.

The enemy also organised Goliath to truncate Gods agenda for the star of Jesse’s family all to no avail.

For somebody reading this piece of divine inspiration, being the star of your family has attracted a lot of attacks to you, but now you are welcome to your turning point in Jesus’ name.
