MFM Devotional 12th August 2022 OUTLINE
In life, many things are tied to divine time and season (Ecclesiastes 3:1). They depend on processes. A process is a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end. Our generation does not have respect for time and season; they have no regard for process and procedure. They prefer time on the fast lane and the microwave mentality. We want the product; we don’t want the process. We want the baby; we don’t want pregnancy.
We want the crops; we don’t want to plant, cultivate and harvest. As someone put it, “You can microwave food; you can’t microwave a destiny into manifestation. You must respect the process! It is not possible to experience only the pleasant sides of life without the unpleasant. If anyone tells you that once you give your life to Jesus, challenges of life will disappear, the person is a liar.

The Bible says that those who will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution (2 Timothy 3:12). Apostle Paul also made a profound statement in Philippians 1:29, “For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake.”
It is unfortunate that many believers do not want to suffer for Christ’s sake nor experience persecution. They want life on the fast lane and on the rosy side. Joseph respected divine process. He suffered persecution. When he had the dreams from God that pointed to greatness in his future, he did not know that he would pass through trials and travails. That is the process. His brothers sold him as a slave. He lived as a servant in Potiphar’s house and did menial job.
Potiphar’s wife lied against him. He was imprisoned. From prison, he became a prime minister. Joseph respected the process. He cooperated with God and things turn around for good for him.
