Dunamis’ Seeds Of Destiny 8 March 2021 Devotional By Pastor Paul Enenche: Trust – A Facilitator Of Opportunity
TOPIC: Trust – A Facilitator Of Opportunity
Character establishes trust, and trust facilitates opportunity for destiny fulfilment.
SCRIPTURE: And he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured. Genesis 39:6.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Character establishes trust, and trust facilitates opportunity for destiny fulfilment.
Trust is a major facilitator of opportunities in life and destiny. This is because to be trusted is to be entrusted. To be trusted is also to be engaged.
Now, trust is a reflection of positive character. That is to say, character establishes trust. Character enhances trust. Character provides the platform to be trusted.
People will trust you if you can keep your tongue from running loose. People will trust you if you are empty of self, that is, humble. People will trust you if money is safe in your hands. People will trust you if you don’t have a bad name or reputation. And trust facilitates opportunity for destiny fulfilment.
The Bible makes it clear that Potiphar, who was an officer of Pharaoh, a captain of the guard, brought Joseph to Egypt and put everything under his care (Genesis 39:1, 6).
One day, Potiphar’s wife tried to seduce Joseph but he ran and left his clothes in her hands. With Joseph’s clothes in her hands as evidence, she told her husband that Joseph attempted sleeping with her. The evidence was true but the story was false.
Beloved, how do you defend yourself in such a situation? And because the man could not act otherwise, he put Joseph in prison (Gen. 39:20).
But in Genesis 40:1-4, we understand that Potiphar, the man whose wife lied against Joseph, was the same person who put two VIP prisoners under Joseph’s care in prison.
The question is: why did he do that? In earnest, he seemed to have told Joseph, “There is nobody I trust here except you. Joseph, I know that my wife lied against you. I don’t have anything against you. I trusted you enough to put everything under your care and I still trust you, even now.”
Beloved, character indeed establishes trust, and trust facilitates opportunity for destiny fulfilment.
Remember this: character establishes trust, and trust facilitates opportunity for destiny fulfilment.
- Make up your mind to live a life worthy of trust.
- Refuse to be engaged in any activity that will jeopardize people’s trust on you.
PRAYER: I receive the grace Lord, to live a life that can be trusted. Help me to live a life of integrity and uprightness, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
