Pursuing Purpose Can Pose a Problem
Make things harder than before
Like Moses made things harder for Jacob
Pharaoh getting mad, vindictive.
David was destined for the throne
But he had to dodge Saul’s venom
Run from pillar to post, under cover
Things going from bad to worse was the process.
Without the process, there will be no promise
He had to endure like a soldier
Joseph was ordained to be a governor
But the pit and prison had to precede.
Without wisdom and understanding, you cannot stand
You will cry ’Wolf’ and throw in the towel
You will play into the enemy’s hand,
Who’s come to kill steal and destroy!
So when the fire gets hotter and hotter
Trust in His faithfulness as He refines
You will not come out bitter but better
You will come out smelling like rose.
Daniel’s friends are your example
They stood the test, would not compromise
Daniel himself leaves us a lesson:
From opposition you can obtain promotion.
‘The supreme need in every hour of difficulty
Is a vision of God’ – G.C. Morgan
