TEXT: ‘He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant: Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron: Until the time that his word came: the word of the Lord tried him. The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free. He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance: To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.’ – Psalm 105:17-22
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY Revelation from the Word is a life-changer!
Revelation or insight from the Word of God is an invaluable asset of the child of God; it has many benefits. For example, from our anchor Scripture, we see that the Word of the Lord which came to Joseph in prison processed his release and freedom and established him as a Governor in the land of Egypt. The revelation of the Word of God, therefore, is the hope of freedom.
Now, what are the products of revelation or insight from the Word of God?
1. Revelation terminates afflictions: The above Scripture says that they hurt Joseph’s feet with iron. But when His word (insight or revelation) came, the hurt was over. Insight or revelation from the Word of God, therefore, terminates afflictions.
2. Revelation facilitates liberation: The King sent and loosened the fetters off Joseph when his Word came. You see? Light or insight from the Word is the secret of liberation. There is something you will know from the Word of God that will usher you into freedom. That is why the Bible says: ‘You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.’ (John 8:32).
3. Revelation brings elevation: The Scripture above also says: ‘He made him ruler over his house…’ Why? This was because he (Joseph) received a revelation. Revelation, therefore, brings elevation. Insight brings promotion. Beloved, there is something you will know that will change your level in life.
4. Revelation brings distinction: Joseph became an outstanding personality, ‘to teach his senators wisdom.’ He was brought into distinction and authority by the instrumentality of revelation from the Word of God.
Beloved, revelation from the Word of God is a life-changer! My counsel to you is this: Apply yourself to the study of the Word. As you do so, I decree that the Word that will make you a champion in your generation shall be released to you, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Revelation from the Word is a life-changer!
1. Study God’s Word with diligence until revelation or insight breaks forth in your spirit
2. Take necessary action steps gathered from the insight in God’s Word.
PRAYER: O LORD, open my eyes to see revelations from Your Word, in Jesus’ Name.
