Reflecting on the story of Joseph has brought tears to my eyes. (Genesis 37-50) I think about the life journey he took getting to his destiny and purpose. God gave him a vision of what was to come at an early age. Joseph made the mistake of sharing the vision with haters. But what he did not realize was that his mistake which caused his brothers to put him in the pit was part of the master plan to get him to the palace. Joseph's journey from the pit to Potiphar's place, to prison was preparing him for the palace. Without all of those experiences, Joseph would have lacked the wisdom and maturity to carry out his purpose. Whatever you are going through right now is preparing you to take your place at your palace (place of your purpose). I cried because I was grateful for all of the things God has brought me through in preparation for the palace (poyp). Don't complain, prepare for the palace.
There is a law in the Kingdom of God that is similar to the Law of Sowing and Reaping. This morning, while reading a devotional, I saw a perfect example of this Law of Recompense and Reward. In the book of Genesis, chapter 42, verses 21-22, it speaks of how Joseph's brothers realized that the actions they carried out against Joseph had come back upon them. Every action that we carry out has a corresponding recompense or reward. If we do something bad, we can expect a recompense. If we do something good, we can expect a reward. This is a law which corresponds with the Law of Sowing and Reaping. Every action brings about a reaction whether for good or bad. We must take these laws and apply them to our daily lives. Since the Kingdom of God is ran by God's law which is His Word, if we consider ourselves to be Kingdom citizens, we must have an understanding of these laws.

...they valued the "partnership mentality" between a husband and wife. Even the word partner means one who shares. Sharing a life together in every area is powerful and a great example of what our partnership should be like with the Lord our King. When you are in relationship (partnership) with the Lord, Jesus Christ, you are empowered supernaturally to operate in this earth realm. God is glorified through this partnership and we are able to accomplish the purpose for which He placed us here on the earth.
One of the most powerful partnerships that exist on this earth is the partnership between a husband and wife. It is wonderful to see a segment of society begin to utilize the power of this partnership.
When husbands and wives work together for a common goal, there is a much greater result than if either of them worked on a goal alone. Look at Deut.32:30 and Eccl.4:9-12. These scriptures show us how partnership multiplies the power to accomplish the purposes of those in the partnership. There is no other partnership on the earth as intimate as the partnership between a husband and wife. Marriage between a husband and wife has the blessing of God. Husbands and wives have the potential to be partners in every area of life. They can work together in their vocation, in their family life and in their relationship with each other. Society as a whole would benefit greatly if...

Manifestation occurs when we say what we believe regardless of whether or not what we say is good or bad. We must be in complete agreement with what God says, even when we are tempted to speak negative words. If we have to, we should even cover our mouth to keep silent until we can agree with what God has said. You really do have to get that radical. Don't forfeit your blessing and destiny because of a lack of discipline over your mouth. The enemy is looking for any opening he can find. Don't open the door and invite him...

2Cor.4:18AMP "Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting." The Apostle Paul admonishes us to remember what is important. When we operate by our spiritual sight, we are able to withstand...
