One Day of Great Favour!

Topic: One Day of Great Favour!

Text: Genesis 41 vs 39 46.

Confession: Everyday is made by God but a day of great favour is reserved for those that are preferred! I'm preferred by God and that day of great favour reserved for me shall locate me now in Jesus' name.


One day of great favour! Beloved, put on your seat belt this morning for a great visitation of God, because the Lord is moving towards you in a dramatic way  in Jesus' name. Joseph in Genesis 41 vs 39-46 had this encounter: "And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: 40. Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou. 41. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.

42 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck;  43. And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt. 44. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt. 45.  And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.   46. And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt"

Beloved! All these accounts of favour done to Joseph happened in just one day! First, his status changed: prisoner to prime-minister. Second, his garment changed: prisoner's clothes to a potentate's wardrobe. Third, his mobility changed: trekker to charioteer! Four, his name changed: Joseph to Zaphnathpaaneah. Five, his marital status changed: bachelor to gloriously married! Six, 30 years of hardship, persecution, false accusation, imprisonment changed to comfort,   honour, authority, dominion, prosperity and fame in just one day! Joseph's favour was not ordinary. It was not a "regular" favour. It was GREAT FAVOUR and it happened in just one day! You may have been enjoying favors all the time, but has there been a day God packed an avalanche of favors in your life in just one day? God will do it for you today in Jesus' name.

Listen to me: God can do anything! He owns the yam and He owns the knife. Just like Pharaoh told Joseph in verse 44 of the scripture above: "I am Pharaoh"!, meaning that,  I'm in charge here; I call the shots; I can make things happen here! In the same way, God is God! Yes, He is God! He can bring one down and lift one up; He can dry up the sea by a simple command and do whatever He likes! The Bible says in Psalm 135 vs 6: "Whatsoever  the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the sea, and all deep places". In Psalm 46 vs 10, the Bible says: "Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth". So, God is God! He will make your day of great favour come quickly in Jesus' name.

Beloved, great possibilities come only from God: hold on to Him more firmly and faithfully. Joseph obeyed God in both small things and big things and God poured favors upon Him. Please, obey God more and more. Joseph's faith was full. Check your faith and stop looking up to any man for anything. God is God. He will do whatsoever He has purposed to do for you, man or no man! Be of a merry heart! Stop blaming yourself or anyone for anything. Rejoice always because God is in charge of your life. Read your Bible. Pray without ceasing. Give your best all the time and your day of great favour will surely come in Jesus' name. Amen. Shalom.

Pls, sing this song or confess it if you can't sing it:

It pays to serve Jesus, I speak from my heart,
He'll always be with us, if we do our part
There's naught in this wide world can pleasure afford;
There's peace and contentment in serving the Lord.

I love Him far better than in days of yore
I'll serve Him more truly than ever before,
I'll do as He bids me, whatever the cost,
I'll be a true soldier, I'll die at my post.

And oft when I'm tempted to turn from the track,
I think of my Saviour, my mind wanders back
To the place where they nailed Him on Calvary's tree.
I heard a voice saying, "I suffered for thee."

A place I remember where I was set free,
'Twas where I found pardon, a heaven to me.
There Jesus spoke sweetly to my weary soul,
My sins were forgiven, He made my heart whole.

How rich is the blessing the world cannot give,
I'm satisfied fully for Jesus to live;
Though friends may forsake me and trial arise,
I am trusting Jesus, His love never dies.

There is no one like Jesus can cheer me today.
His love and His kindness can ne'er fade away,
In winter and summer, in sunshine and rain,
His love and affection are always the same.

Will you have this blessing that Jesus bestows,
A free full salvation from sin's bitter throes?
O come to the Saviour, to Calvary flee,
The fountain is opened, is flowing for thee.
