TOPIC: BLESSINGS TURNED CURSE

Read Exodus 10:1-7

MEMORISE: Then Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for every man of the Egyptians sold his field, because the famine was severe upon them. So the land became Pharaoh's (Genesis 47:20)

EXPOSITION
Joseph, was a young boy, who was betrayed and sold into slavery by his own blood in order to prevent the fulfilment of God's promises upon him. He became useful to Pharaoh and to the entire world, in the accumulated wealth for Pharaoh and Egypt as a nation. He successfully brought Egypt through economic melt-down by applying his God-given skill and wisdom. His wise strategy and effective implementation of the plan allowed Egypt to become major distributor of grain to the rest of the world during famine.
Joseph made the Egyptians economy buoyant as they exchanged livestock for food after they ran out of money. When all of the livestock had been traded, people willingly sold themselves into slavery to Pharaoh and sold him the ownership of their lands as well (Gen. 47:13-26).
The presence and favour of God in the life of Joseph and all around him made this possible. Children of God carry His favour on them everywhere they go.
However, the blessings accumulated for Pharaoh and Egypt as a nation turned curse when they held on to God's possession - the Israelites. They obstructed and wanted to disrupt the program of God. Who can battle with the Lord God of Israel and will not be seriously wounded and totally destroyed?
God sent plagues of death on the Egyptians, including Pharaoh and his household and all the land of Egypt were totally destroyed (Exo. 10:7) before they allowed them to go. Blessings of God not properly managed could become a curse.
Do not dare your Maker in your thoughts, actions and speech. Let go of all that belongs to God in your possession TITHE, OFFERING. Do not try to disrupt or obstruct God's program and plans as anyone who dares to do that will be totally crushed. Learn from the Egyptians.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, I give you my all. My life is in your hands, do with it the way it pleases You.
2. Father, contend with those who are manipulating my life, the agents of setbacks upon my life and family.
3. Pray that God should visit the camp of the abductors of His people, deliver His children and take care of those abductors in His own way.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Jeremiah 32 - 33
