God’s Favour - Bro. T. Stephen

I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.  The blessed word that God   has given for you today is from the book of    Deuteronomy   33:14-16, And with the choice yield of the sun, And the choice produce of the months; And with the best things of the ancient mountains,   With the choice things of the everlasting hills,And with the choice things of the earth and its fullness, And the favour of Him who dwelt in the bush. Let it come to the head of Joseph, to the top of the head of the one who was prince among his brothers.

We see from the above passage the blessings of Moses, bestowed upon the twelve tribes of Israel, before his death. The above mentioned context was the blessing   of Joseph.   He was special because he was the son of Israel,   in his old age. Jacob had twelve sons who formed the twelve tribes of Israel. Every tribe had his share of blessing, but Joseph had more than all his brothers.  He rightly deserved the blessing of Moses   because he proved to be better than the rest of his brothers. Today the Lord is going to place this blessing upon your head as it was placed over the head of Joseph. As soon as His blessing descends upon your head, all your poverty will vanish.  All your misery will change.  You will begin to prosper.

Just as a ripe fruit naturally tastes delicious,   in the same manner many things that you desire will happen in favour of you very naturally. Just as we enjoy the light of the moon during the night time, so also will be the gifts that you receive from the hands of God pleasant and beautiful.  You will not only receive the blessings of the hills and the mountains but also receive precious things of the earth and its fullness.  Just as the favour of God descended upon Joseph and blessed him above all his brothers so will God bless you through your work or your business and reveal his favour to you among all your brethren.

The blessing on Joseph was special, and long.  Joseph was fruitful though, in fact he was so fruitful that he was always a blessing to those around him; be it his family, his owner under whom he served as a slave in Egypt, the prison where he was wrongly incarcerated, or in Egypt where he ruled as the Governor.  How was this possible?  Joseph actually suffered much, in the hands of his brothers, but he always remained steadfast. He always trusted in the Lord; so the Lord blessed him and protected him.  Though, “They shot at him but his bow remained steady.” Although the world threw all it could at Joseph, he remained in his faith and was rewarded because of it. 

May be until now you have not seen success in your life, You might have experienced great failure in your studies, in your ministry, or in your business. But in future the Lord will enable you to prosper in all walks of life. The Bible says, it pleased the Lord to bless Israel. He is a God who does what He says. He blessed Jabez, when he cried unto the Lord. God enlarged his territory and preserved him from all evil. God granted him what he requested.  In the same manner God will grant you all your request. Moses blessed the children of Israel with all kinds of blessings. He called all the twelve tribes and blessed them. This particular blessing was given to the tribe of Joseph.  Moses refers to the favour of God that he experienced while he was beside the burning bush and expected that Joseph should receive such blessings from the Lord. The Bible says; Let the blessing come on the head of Joseph. Likewise the blessing of the Lord will henceforth descend upon you and your children. Your blessing is upon your people. God bless you.

Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank You for Joseph who endured patiently all the troubles and therefore he was exalted.    Similarly we pray that you will help us to bear all the troubles patiently with the faith of God.   Bless us and our children,   with the yield of the sun, and with the best things of the ancient mountains,   with the beauty of the hills,And with the things of the earth and its fullness,  Bless us  Lord as Moses blessed Joseph.

In Jesus name we pray,
