From Conspiracy To Lifting

9th December 2020

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 6: 8-23

Focus

“And he said, Go and spy where he is, that I may send and fetch him. And it was told him, saying, Behold, he is in Dothan.” (2 Kings 6: 13)

It is important to observe that Joseph, like Elisha, was in Dothan at the time that his brothers sold him into slavery. Dothan was that place that seemed symbolic of bad news, both for Elisha and for Joseph. Notice that in the case of Joseph, his brothers sold him into slavery, he ended up in Egypt, and in a matter of time, he became a prince of Egypt, and ruled over everything except Pharaoh. A challenge that looked purely internal for Joseph became the foundation for his promotion.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: every conspiracy against you shall lead to your promotion. Every evil word that men have spoken against you shall lead to your elevation. Every plot to pull you down from the heights you have attained will open new doors of congratulations for you. Every attempt of your haters to push you out of relevance will cause God to make you more relevant than you have ever been. Your conspirators will push for your elevation without knowing it.

Joseph eventually came to a point of telling those that conspired against him, that whereas they meant it for evil, God had turned it around for good. Hear me as I hear the Lord: they may have meant it for evil, but God will turn it around for good. They may have had evil in mind when the spoke wrong words against you, but the result will be in your favour. They may have meant it for your downfall, but God will make it a point for elevation.

Don’t lose sleep on account of the wickedness of the wicked. If God be for you, their hatred for you and conspiracies against you will become raw materials for your celebrations and congratulations. If God be for you, the efforts to pull you down will end up raising you up. If God be for you, the tables will turn in your favour despite the conspiracies against you. If God be for you, those working against you will end up working for your rising.

Ask God to reposition your haters to become messengers for your elevation. Ask God to convert the conspiracies against you to work for your lifting.

Declaration

Every conspiracy against me shall work for my lifting, in Jesus’ name!
