SCRIPTURE: “And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.” Exodus 5:1 (KJV)
The reason why God called you primarily is to serve Him. When God called Moses in Exodus and sent him to Pharaoh. He told him to tell Pharaoh, let my people go so that they may serve me, not to look for a house or car, building, or marriage. But that they should hold a feast for me. That’s all the reasons you need in life. He further instructed Moses to tell the people “And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfill.
When you are connected to God every other thing will manifest in your life. Do you know something that is so powerful? In those days, slaves were sold naked. He came empty and naked and owned nothing. Yet the Bible has this to say about Joseph in Genesis 39:1-2 “And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmaelite, which had brought him down thither. And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man.”
That sounds like an oxymoron, a paradox. How can a slave be prosperous? He went into Egypt without anything and suddenly he was prosperous. What was the reason? The source of his prosperity was not in his benefits but because the Lord was with him. That is the key. That is where the rubber meets the road. The Lord was with Joseph and as a result, his prosperity was guaranteed. As you serve God, He will certainly satisfy the yearnings and desires of your heart. It doesn’t matter how long it takes, settle it in your heart that you will certainly testify because what God has done for one is a testimony of what He will do for another.
