A man sees life as series of spontaneous unconnected events, but God sees life differently. God is deliberate about the things that He does. He orchestrates things in our lives. The events that took place in the life of Joseph that led him from his Father's house to the throne of Egypt may appear to be disconnected, but if you look closely, you will understand that it is man and God in partnership. It is the degree to which you cooperate with God and His works in you that will determine how much things in your life will happen the way God wants.

It is important that you take note of the following points to maximize the God and man partnership experience in your life.
1.    Know what is happening on the spiritual side of your life. You must find out and decide which spirit you will allow to rule in your life.

2.    Tend the positive seeds of the spiritual side of your life. What is operating on the spiritual side of your life will determine what breaks forth on the physical side of your life regularly and occasionally. God did not plan that life be purely natural for His children.
Life is made up of two camps: the spiritual and the physical. It is from the spiritual realm that there is a break forth into the physical. The spiritual side of your life includes your ancestry.
God calls us to a life of understanding, mastery and partnership. The journey of Ruth to ownership began by her proper discerning of and partnering with the spiritual side of her life. She understood where she was coming from, and decided to separate from her people completely (Ruth 1:16). Ruth’s understanding of the spiritual side of her life was what made her follow Naomi against all odds. She serviced that relationship until she became what God wanted her to be.
Also, the experiences of Joseph were divinely orchestrated by God and at every stage, his fear of God and willing obedience were marks of his partnership with God which resulted in his glorious end. As a Joseph in your generation, may you not fail the expectation of God in your day in Jesus name.

Prayer: Father, give me understanding of Your plan for me, and help me to submit to Your counsel in reverent fear, effectively partnering with You so that Your purpose will be fulfilled in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
