There are men of God and there are also men from God. Men of God are your Pastors and Ministers who prays and speak concerning your life and from time to time God honor and confirm their word.
There are also men from God just like in the case of Joseph in genesis 37:15-17 where a certain man whose name was not mentioned found him wandering around in the fields.
Men from God are sent to fix things, From time to time God position them to fix a particular thing that’s missing, to fill a gap in our lives. God sends them to help us get to our destination in life.
Every destiny in life has a destination.
Joseph came looking for his brothers in the place where he thought they were, but before he got there they had left the place.
If God didn’t position a man in that place, probably Joseph would have wandered there for so long, frustrated and go back home without accomplishing his mission.
At Shechem, Joseph got lost. A man found him wandering in the fields. The man said, “What are you looking for?”
Joseph answered, “I am looking for my brothers. Can you tell me where they are with their sheep?”
The man said, “They have already gone away. I heard them say that they were going to Dothan.”
So Joseph followed his brothers and found them in Dothan.
Genesis 37:15-17 ERV
When his brothers saw him coming from far off they conspired to kill him because they were envious of his dreams.
But interestingly God was up to something. God works in diverse ways and whichever way he chooses doesn’t matter as long as His purpose for our lives is fulfilled.
The point at which some of us are right now is let God just do something.
He raised a voice in verse 21 through Reuben to rescue Joseph by telling his brothers they shouldn’t kill him, rather he should be thrown into a pit.
Mind you a pit is a place where you can’t be seen, it’s a place where one’s head is covered and voice can’t be heard. A pit is a place where you can’t be equal to your mates.
Do you know that poverty, sickness, failure, stagnation are all pits?
There are people who cannot kill you but they will keep you in the pit.
As they were just about to eat they saw the Ishmaelites traders (men from God) and God raised another voice for Joseph through Judah who suggested that they should sell Joseph to the Ishmaelites which they agreed to.
Joseph was later sold to Potiphar from Potiphar’s to prison and while in the prison God yet again raised another voice through the king’s butler who recommended Joseph to the king.
May God send help and raise a voice for you from time to time in Jesus name. May God silent and put to shame every voice speaking against your life and dreams in Jesus name.
For Saul it was his father’s servant that God used when he was looking for his father’s donkey
For Naaman it was his wife maid that God used to get through to Elijah for his healing.
For David God raised a voice for him through one of king Saul’s servant in 1 Samuel 16:18
For Lazarus God raised him up through the voice of the resurrection.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Genesis 1:3 KJV
