Fresh Hope – 3rd April 2020

I want you to think about how quickly God can turn a situation around. 

One day Joseph was in a pit, the next day he was running someone’s household. One day he was in a prison cell, the next day in charge of everything and living in a palace. 

Right now we are all part of a story. What does a story have? It has pages. God wants to turn the page of your life right now. The current page may have doubts on it or concerns or questions… But the page is about to turn and the future is bright with hope. 

It doesn’t matter what today looks like, tomorrow can be different. 
Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, the author and perfecter of your faith. (Hebrews 12 vs 2) Yes, He’s your author and He only ever writes a GREAT story. 

God couldn’t make the switch with Joseph from slave to palace as long as he had a slave mentality. It says in Genesis 41 v 14 that he got ready to meet the king, so he had a shave, got out of his jail-cell clothes and put on palace clothes. You have to have a great expectation that tomorrow is going to be different. The only thing that Joseph had was faith in GOD that He wouldn’t let him down. He’d been in that cell for years. Imagine that, day in, day out.  

Yet his hope in God was alive and well. The only assurance that me and you have right now is faith.  
Faith that God won’t let us down.  

He had no idea why he was being sent for, after years of being in that cell…but his expectation urged him to PUT ON ‘palace’ clothes. He was about to meet the King. He was dressed for where he was going, not for where he was

So raise your expectation today…because God is about to turn your page. You had better be wearing the right clothes.  

Proverbs 23 v 18. Your future is bright and filled with a living hope that will never fade away.
