Theme: Your Recognition May Not Come Out From The Promise Land,
But Come From a Farway
Introduction: Your CSI is defined as your "Circumstances, Situations, Issues" that your will face in Time,Life, and Crisis.
Joseph felt he he was facing the worse of times, life was a curse, and crisis was an albatross around his neck and feet. That's
why God has put within us his purpose(John 18:37) either one talent, two talents or five talents(Matt. 25;14-28):1. A Book-Hagg.
2:3;2. A Dreamer-Gen. 37:1-8; 3. An Achiever-11 Tim. 1:7; 4-An Inventor-Rom. 4:17; 5. A Motivator-1 Sam. 30:6.
That's why David when facing the Giant Goliath chose out Five Smooth Stones(1 Sam 17:40; because Saul loss
his talent(favor and anointing from God) and he gave it to David(1 Sam. 13:13,14;1 Sam. 16:12-14). Each of us has a leadership
and stewardship(Servant-Leader)Potential. Some of us develop it, and others will never see it.
1. Knowing Him In The Fellowship of His Suffering :Phil. 3:10
A. Gal. 6:7-9--We Reap What We Sow--But Cannot Give Up, Less We Lose.
B. Ex.14:12-14---When We are at our Red Sea and Pressed in between
a no return and a dilemma(Stand Still and see the
salvation of the Lord).
C. 11 Tim. 2:3---We must endure hardness as a good soldier. Chapter 2:
and verse three of 11 Tim. is like the 23rd Psalms.
11. The Power of His Resurrection ;Phil. 3:10
Knowing Him In The Power of His Resurrection(Yes
I had to get
hurt in order to be blessed). This was the testimony of
Joseph and it was
the testimony of Lord Jesus Christ(Heb.9:16-18). Like Jesus,
suffering releases the blessings of the covenat;otherwise,
it is of no
111. Knowing Who We Are In Christ(1 Cor. 15:10;Eph. 5:14-16;1 John
2:15). Three things we must remember in life: Knowing the
why we were born(John 19:37;Not to be weary in well doing(Gal.
7-9); and evil(Gen. 50:20), in God's timing, God will turn
the CSI around
in your life. Evil spelled backwards is live. Life(resurrection)can
out of a dead/cursed situation(Job 42:8-10).
Conclusion; The prophet Micah said, what does the Lord require of us(Micah
6:8),that we do justly, walk humbly with thy God,etc. This is fulfilled
Gal. 6:8, he that soweth to the flesh shall reap corruption, but
soweth in the spirit, shall reap everlasting life. Somethings in
be our timing, but it is not in God's season(Eccl. 3:1). That is why
get a shortcut to a blessing, and later on fall into the condemantion of the
devil, because it may have been your timing, but not God' season(1 Tim.
3:6;1 Pet. 5:6).
recognition and Protection may not come out always
from the Promise Land; it may have to come out from a faraway land like
Egypt(Esther 4:14 ; Gen. 37: 36;Matt.2:15).
