Episode 117: Getting Promoted

One of the intentional ways in which God moves involves Him facilitating an internal promotion within the Christian’s spirit while not yet offering an external circumstance that matches it. God works and moves within His children but does not always immediately provide an outlet for all that good to flow. It is not uncommon in Scripture to find someone who is being blessed spiritually while suffering circumstantially. In the book of Genesis, we see this reality played out in the life of Joseph. His example offers us counsel and hope when we feel like a dammed-up river with no clear ability to flow. Eventually, for those who learn to properly value the internal promotion, the external promotion will arrive. In the delay, God is building the Christian’s trust. If you have ever felt stuck, then Joseph’s life-story is going to help you.
