A Wisdom Key From The Life Of Joseph – Seeds Of Destiny Devotional, 2 July 2021 By Pastor Paul Enenche
SCRIPTURE: …and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report. Genesis 37:2.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Always take a stand against evil even if you have to stand alone.
It has been confirmed that wisdom is a critical asset for destiny fulfilment. Wisdom aids the fulfilment of life and destiny.
Now, one place where wisdom can be accessed is the Presence of God. Wisdom can also be learnt from the lives of those who walked with God. This is because walking with God is walking in wisdom. Star personalities of the Kingdom like Joseph, Nehemiah, Daniel, Esther, Moses, etc., were made by the Wisdom of God. So, there is a connection between stardom and wisdom in the Kingdom.
In our study today, we shall be looking at a wisdom key from the life of Joseph.
Joseph was the wisest man in his generation. His wisdom defeated the wisdom of the magicians of Egypt. So, it is important to learn from his wisdom.
Now, one wisdom key to learn from the life of Joseph is:
Always take a stand against evil even if you have to stand alone.
In Genesis 37:2, Joseph stood alone in righteousness when he brought the evil report of his eleven brothers to his father. His eleven brothers were all on one side, the side of evil; and he was alone on the side of righteousness. Beloved, determine never to follow the multitude to do evil (Exodus 23:2).
We live in a generation where multitudes of people are running in the wrong direction and everyone else feels compelled to run in their direction. Beloved, never be under the pressure to run with the multitude in the wrong direction. Always take a stand against evil even if you have to stand alone.
Remember this: Always take a stand against evil even if you have to stand alone.
1. Make up your mind to learn wisdom from the lives of men and women in scripture who walked with God.
2. Stand against evil if you have to stand alone.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to learn from the wisdom of those who walked with You. Help me to stand against evil even if I have to stand alone, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

REFLECTION: What is more important to you? The approval of men or the approval of God; validation by men or validation by God? What God feels about you is more important than anything else.
