As Jeffrey read the letter, his heart was filled with anger and the injustice in the world. This was his reward for all the hard work he had put in this organisation for over 2 years?
He had been transferred unceremoniously from a office he co-started all because he stood for the truth, he was a son of the Most High God and he would not make any man a god and because of that, he was conspired against by all his colleagues at the office and he was accused of trying to remove his supervisor so he could head the office.
He could sense the excitement of his colleagues and the "God has caught you" look in their eyes. Who would believe that all he did was in good faith?Who would believe that he was not trying to take anyone's job?
Jeffrey was given a week to resume at the head office and given 2 months to vacate the official residence even though his wife was pregnant at the moment. Worse of all was that no arrangements were made for him in the head office; they did not provide accommodation or transportation, they simply transferred him without benefits but God was waiting for him at the head office, God provided a house so that Jeffrey could move his pregnant wife and all their belongings to their new location in just 3 weeks.
At the head office, Jeffrey realised that the original plan was to fire him but that failed as well. Jeffrey faced many challenges at the head office but God was with him and he began to prosper in his new location, everyone wanted to know how he adjusted so fast, all he could tell them was that Jesus did it.
Jeffrey still could not understand why things happened the way they did but he knew God was with him. Nine months later, the board of the organisation was frustrated with the work of the organisation and they decided to restructure. One of the things they did was to sack all the staff in Jeffrey's former office. Jeffrey began to understand that God saw what was coming and saved him through the transfer, he could have been jobless but God made him the last man standing and the one with the last laugh.
I don't know what you are going through at the moment, you may be feeling the pain of betrayal or the bitterness of being punished for what you know nothing about. I want you to believe the word of God in Romans 8:28 (NLT) And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
You will soon understand why things happened the way they did and it will make you trust God more, if Joseph knew that the next place after the prison was the palace, he would have been excited to be in the prison.
You are not happy right now because you don't know what is going on but God has called me to tell you this morning that He means what He said in Jeremiah 29:11(NLT) For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. God will surprise you, He will bring beauty out of that beast and give you double for your trouble.
