“…behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds.” (Numbers 17: 8)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Aaron’s dry rod was originally part of a tree; it was cut down and turned into a staff. It became dry, the sap in it dried up, and then it became Aaron’s staff of authority. The dryness of the stick brought out a new dimension of the stick; dryness helped it to become a staff of authority. As a branch, it was fine; when it was cut down and became a stick, it was also functional.
Friend, hear God’s prophetic word: no matter what happens, you will still be useful.
Whether a good man or a bad man is in charge, things will work for your good; whether you are given a good placement or an undesirable placement, the flow of divine favour on your life shall not cease; whether your destiny helpers stay or leave, God says, you will remain relevant in destiny; whether your place in life is high or low, everything will work for your good.
In fullness and in dryness, Aaron’s rod remained relevant; God says, in fullness and in dryness, you shall be relevant. In the midst of lovers or haters, you shall rise higher; whether the policies be good or not good, nothing shall be taken away from your success; what looks like demotion to others will be a chance for renewed relevance in your own life.
Your destiny and relevance does not depend on who likes you or who doesn’t like you
. . . it depends on the God who is able to make you what He wants you to be. When men think they have taken you down, they will succeed in bringing you to a point where your relevance becomes long lasting and eternal.
Hold on to God and as the Potter that He is, He will make you into a better vessel whenever you are marred by issues of life.
Pray With Me: Lord, when men take me down, raise me higher and make me more relevant, in Jesus’ name!
