21 January: Twice Fruitful

When there’s no light at the end of your tunnel, today’s chapter shows how, in what looks like a “bizarre twist of fate”, a slave and prisoner became second in command of the greatest civilization on earth – and all in a single morning…

I don’t possess the level of faith required to believe that sheer fate, or random luck, could make an imprisoned slave become ruler over the most sophisticated civilization in the ancient world – especially when both Hebrews and shepherds were detestable to Egyptians.[a] The more I read the script, however, the more I see the impossibility of random fate, and the probability (and indeed high likelihood) of an Author, Director and Producer behind every line in the script of LIFE.

When it comes to understanding divine intervention in human experience, I notice two things in today’s chapter: (i) only the Creator can be God and my job is to just show up. When I’m faithful to what He brings my way, the results are up to Him; and (ii) when I step through the doors, into the matrix that overlays history with HIStory, I’m able see that my Maker not only has a plan, He’s got a good, pleasing and perfect Will.[b] With that said, the Creator’s Global MasterPlan reveals another clue, in today’s chapter, in a matrix that will make Him “twice fruitful”…in us!     Read More?… CLICK on “21 January – Additional Notes”
