The Goshen Factor

The Goshen Factor

Just because there is troubled times in the land doesn’t mean you and I have to experience it! God has sent ahead of you to make provision and hence, you can face the future with fearless confidence! Gen 45:9-11 – Now hurry back to my father and say to him, ‘This is what your son Joseph says: God has made me lord of all Egypt. Come down to me; don’t delay. You shall live in the region of Goshen and be near me—you, your children and grandchildren, your flocks and herds, and all you have.  I will provide for you there, because five years of famine are still to come. Otherwise you and your household and all who belong to you will become destitute.’

Goshen means ‘a place of drawing near’- the place of God’s presence. I sense a great hope rising in my spirit as this scripture holds great promise for provision in troubled times. It is as if the Lord Himself is speaking to us just like Joseph spoke to his brothers. Just as Joseph was discarded by his own, even though he was destined of God to be their provision in troubled times, Jesus too was discarded by His own, and He is our provision for troubled times.

With the unpleasant events in the Nations today, as believers, must access and engage the Goshen factor. God still knows how to make a distinction between those who serve Him and those who don’t. He hasn’t stopped! Your case is different because Goshen where you dwell, is run by the government of Jesus Christ himself which will never end. Rom 14:17 puts it this way ’For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit’

Today our Goshen is Christ. On Christ the solid rock we stand, all other ground is sinking sand. If you are in Christ, you are a new creation, old things are passed away, and all things have become new. Things will no longer happen to you the way it used to neither will it occur to you the way it does to others. The curses and diseases that run in the family will no longer work against you. Goshen gives you the right to covenant exemption. If you are in Christ, you have been delivered from the powers of darkness and translated into the kingdom of His dear Son. Your life is hid in Christ, so you are safe and secured in Christ. From this year 2019, may your life be continually victorious, may you win all the battles of life and may you never see shame in Jesus name.

Happy New Year!
