Sunset is not the end..

How I wish to know more of what Joseph did 13 years inside the prison! Psalm 105:17-19 says, ”He sent a man before them --- Joseph --- who was sold as a slave. They hurt his feet with fetters, He was laid in irons. Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the LORD tested him.” How did Joseph endure the testing time? It would have been great and awesome, if we had more insight to the times that he was in prison! Such precious details would be a healing balm for people who are going through similar ‘prison’ situations! With an aching heart I write this! However, explicit details of Joseph spending 13 years in prison and Daniel spending one whole night in the lion’s den, are not given because God wants us to see it through our spiritual eyes. We are able to see the glory of God through our spiritual eyes. I like the words of David: “Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law.” (Psalm 119:18) Yes, an ‘opened eye’ will perceive the spiritual truths! It is not how much of factual details you read, but how much you understand and see with your spiritual eyes, that is very important.

 

 

David has left his tears collected in the book of Psalms, each time we read, we are able to know the path that he had to tread before climbing the throne. We have the Apostle Paul who has left behind a treasure trove for us in the New Testament, the collection of his epistles that are setting the hearts of many on fire for God and many other saints like Job, have left behind their life experiences for us to read.  In my life, each time I stumbled and crumbled down, God ministered to me through the life of other servants of God and picked me up from the floor and put me back on the track to run the race. During my initial days of ministry, God knew that a young man along with his wife, who were among the first fruits of our ministry and very much close to my heart, were about to leave us and their Christian faith. Much around this time, two lovely books came to me by courier sent through another ministry, where I had sowed an offering. I tell you, these two books brought revival in my spiritual life. I still preserve them!

 

 

En route to our destination, there are million times that we are tempted to give up on our mission and there are many out there who had not completed the race. An avalanche of problems come down on you, to totally bury you under the rubble. But look what Psalm 66:12 says, “You have caused men to ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water; But You brought us out to rich fulfillment.” I like the words ‘rich fulfillment’! Surely one needs grit and determination to reach the place of fulfillment! But observe, it is He who eventually brings us to the place of fulfillment! Praise the Lord!
