Topic: Wisdom Keys For Survival [Monday January 22nd, 2018]
Scripture: And Pharaoh said unto his servants, can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is? And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art. Genesis 41:38-39.
Thought For The Day: Always see the future before it arrives.
Yesterday, we saw how Joseph was made by the wisdom of God. He rose to the throne by wisdom. He did great exploits in the land of Egypt and became a reference point by the manifestation of the Spirit of wisdom in his life. That is why we need to learn God’s wisdom from his life.
Today, we shall note eighteen wisdom keys from the life of Joseph, and they are:
1. Always take a stand against evil even if you have to stand alone.
2. Endeavour to secure parental goodwill and blessing.
3. Always see the future before it arrives.
4. Never reveal your dreams and visions to your adversaries.
5. Never allow the challenges of life to disconnect you from the Presence of your Maker.
6. Always display the character of faithfulness and trustworthiness in life.
7. Never bow for the pressure to compromise.
8. Never complain about the reaction of the enemy to your stand in integrity.
9. Always maintain the attitude of excitement and expectancy in all situations.
10. Always place service ahead of status.
11. Never hide or hoard your gifts and potentials.
12. Always place impact ahead of income.
13. Never leave your destiny in the hand of a man.
14. Never wait for opportunities before getting prepared; be prepared before opportunities arrive.
15. Always go the extra mile.
16. Never spend everything you get.
17. Never allow your past to bury your future.
18. Never give up on your God-given dreams and visions.
