THE JOSEPHIC LAW- 5 Infallible rules of promotion


1. Recognize Your Source and Channels 

 

Take a look at the picture above. What do  you see? A partridge or a girl's lips and nose?
Even though people might not recognize the tree and the nest of the birds because it appears to be a lady's hair, the birds know exactly where they are going.

In life, people would not always have the right perception of you. However, it will be to your detriment if you let their perception sway you off your feet.

Potiphera saw a six-packed, fine faced dude with excellent leadership qualities in Joseph. From these qualities she perceived that he would be a "hot-sex-mate".
Joseph knew he had all those qualities but he didnt let potiphera's perception make him go blind on God as his source and potiphar as his channel of promotion.

Joseph's ability to RECOGNIZE that a master placed him over his house, enabled him to see sex with Potiphera as wickedness against his channel and sin against his source. Genesis 39:8-10

No one who fails to recognize their source and the channels by which God has chosen to lift them can ever get lasting promotion.

Don't let people's perception fool you. You are a "WORK-IN-PROGRESS". Do not let yourself get fooled into believing that you can overlook the source and the channels.


2. Highly Regard Your Source and Channels


Most times when a highly placed individual come crashing, it is often because they disregarded this law.
It is impossible for you to dishonor or take your source or channel for granted and expect to benefit of them.
Joseph  regarded God and potiphar. He saw sex with potiphera as a breach of trust and wickedness.

The luxury of blessings can easily make people forget God and those he used to bless them.
Never let that happen with you.

It was Joseph's high regard for God that made him get his brothers out of prison when he initially placed them there over a rush of emotion. Genesis 42:14-18

A man who highly regards his source and channels would be preserved  in crisis.

3. Acknowledge God

The entire account on Joseph reveals that he acknowledged God. To acknowledge is to accept the existence or truth of something.
He never failed to make those who sought a dream's interpretation know that GOD was behind that ability. Genesis 40:8, Genesis 41:16

It takes a FOOL to think that there is no God and a HUGER FOOL to think that he/she is his/her own God.

Lasting promotion is in the custody of the Almighty and if you must excel in life or whatever you do, you must ACKNOWLEDGE God as the one who has enabled you to get there.

Stop saying, "my sweat brought me here", "my family connection got me that" ; because there are lots of people who worked harder than you did and even had better connected families, that never got what you got.

All you own or would ever become is a function of God's doing.
 Don't fool yourself.


4. Serve In Unfavorable Conditions

Joseph was moved from the Palace into a pit/dungeon, yet he continued to care for others. Genesis 40:15

When the warden put Joseph in charge of the prison, Joseph didn't say, "who told you I want to stay here forever?" Neither did he say, "A whole me. After ruling in potiphar's house, how can I come to care for this dungeon?"
He accepted the responsibility and genuinely used his gifts (dream interpretation) in that dungeon.

Joseph didn't get mad at God. He didn't say,  "How dare God let me in to a dungeon despite my refusal to sin against him? why didn't He do something to prove my innocence?"

I have being in situations where I did everything right and honoured God and He didn't show up when and how I wanted. However, when He did it was the perfect time and the perfect way!

I don't know what pain, disappointment or shame that you are into at the moment, despite your loyalty, sacrifice, love and commitment to God. I want you to know that God never owes anyone. He rewards in full.  So hang in there and continue to do what you were doing in love and loyalty to Him. He would soon show up in a way that will daze you. He is still there with you, even though you cant see nor sense Him. 

Just keep Serving; Your pay day is near.


5. Know Your Purpose

Your purpose is the distinguishing element that defines you and gives essence to your life. 

It cannot be assumed, you must KNOW IT!
See my book Prothesis on how to find and fulfill purpose.

Joseph knew why God had brought him to Egypt. He boldly stated to his brothers, "But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance." Genesis 45:7

Knowing your purpose, enables you to respond to life's lemon the right way. You wont entertain suicidal thoughts when hell sets lose on you because you know that " God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love HIM and are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

When you know your purpose, you will stay true to yourself and God in spite of all.

Destiny never promotes anyone by accident. You must know who you are, whose you are and what you are created to fix.

Never break the JOSEPHIC LAWS of PROMOTION
