Topic: It Is Not Over Until You Return With Victory.
“And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto them; and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Joseph their father revived”.
In the above passage, Jacob was already aging in sorrow because he thought Joseph was dead. But suddenly, he received the good news that Joseph was still alive. Instantly, a frustrated man who was headed for death came back to life. One good news you receive can change your life permanently. I prophesy over your life that good news is coming your way. Your wagons are coming. The devil is a liar. When God redeemed you, He made you a champion. When God redeemed you, you were moved from being the little player to the big player. You belong to the big league! Therefore, you cannot be defeated. Don’t let the devil deny you of what God has already packaged. The redeemed of the Lord shall return with joy and gladness.
In Egypt, when Joseph finally came to visit Jacob, he did not come alone. He visited with his own children. Jacob never thought he would see Joseph. But not only did he see Joseph, he saw his grandchildren. God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we asked. He always exceeds our expectations. So, don’t you ever believe Satan’s lie.
In the book of Judges, God zeroed in on a man called Jephthah. In the last two verses of chapter 10, the Bible says that the Ammonites came against the Gileadites; and then when you get to chapter 11:1-4, you will discover that Jephthah’s moment came. Though Jephthah was driven out into a strange land, he never went there to lick his wounds. He understood that the redeemed of the Lord will always return. By the time God was through with Jephthah, the same people that sent him away went back with celebration to bring him back and asked him to make his demands. I declare to you that you will return with victory and celebration.
