Prayer Request

As they were emptying their sacks, there in each man’s sack was his pouch of silver! When they and their father saw the money pouches, they were frightened. Their father Jacob said to them, “You have deprived me of my children. Joseph is no more and Simeon is no more, and now you want to take Benjamin. Everything is against me!” (Genesis 42:35-36).

Jacob was thinking his whole world was crumbling in on him. That's because he was looking through his natural eyes and not realizing that he was getting one step closer to receiving the promise of God. Not only that, he was about to get his heart's desire given to him on a silver platter - that was to see his beloved son Joseph again. So it is still today, the closer we get to receiving our promises or having our heart's desire fulfilled, the greater our struggles. But we have to release our Benjamin, that is the thing we hold most dear. Understand, God does not want to deprive you of anything, no He wants to add to your joy and fulfillment, but a sacrifice still has to be made. The greater the sacrifice the greater the reward.

Heavenly Father, I understand that we never see the end from the beginning, but that that privilege belongs to You alone, because You are God all alone and beside You there is no other. I understand that if You did make us privy to see, then there would be no room for faith, thus nullifying the just shall walk by faith. Instead, LORD, I am asking for a measure of faith proportionate to the measure of my promise. So that I can let my Benjamin go which will take me into my promise, or into a position to receive my heart's desire. Now bless and strengthen all who read and receive this in Jesus name, amen.
