Look at the journey of Joseph; he came from his father’s house to Egypt as a slave and then went to Potiphar’s house as his houseboy. He went from there to prison and then to the palace. The journey that God designed for him was to develop a potential and spirit in him and when he got to the palace where he was to fulfill purpose, he was already a developed individual.
If he had a victimized mentality, he would have been complaining, bitter, full of envy, jealous and would not have allowed God to develop him. There are some attitudes and emotions that you cannot sustain if you want to fulfill your destiny. They include envy, jealousy, bitterness, regret, offences, strife etc. Thinking of the evil people did to you and things like that, will not allow you develop a spirit of excellence. Once you embrace this negative attitude, you will not cooperate with the processes that God has arranged to develop the capacity you need on your destiny platform. Most of the time, the bad things that people do to you will be turned around to develop you for your destiny. You must recognize this.
Thank God for the not too good things that people do to us. Use them to develop yourself. See everything that people do to you as a tool to develop yourself. See people on the road of life as teachers that God has assigned to you in the school of the Holy Spirit and see yourself in the laboratory of the Holy Spirit that God is working on you through everything you are facing and you can co-operate with God, to use the challenges that you face to overcome. Develop the fighter’s spirit, fight the majority opinion that is negative, fight what your eyes see that is negative and choose to develop a spirit of excellence and it shall be well with you in Jesus’ name.
PRAYER: Lord, show me every negative attitude I am sustaining that is working against what you are developing in me for my destiny and deliver me from them. I receive the grace to cooperate with the process you are using to prepare me for my destiny in Jesus’ name. Amen.
