From Genesis 41 we read the story of Joseph and how he rose from the pit to become prime minister in Egypt. The way he responded to pressures indicates how we are to respond to pressures against our anointing.
Genesis 41:21 New King James Version (NKJV)
21 When they had eaten them up, no one would have known that they had eaten them, for they were just as ugly as at the beginning. So I awoke.
Favor and love produce fruit to the overflow. Envy hate and words attached to envy and hate produce death famine and fear.
In pharaoh’s dream, ugly cows are trying to eat up the healthy cows. This means that ugly cows are trying to eat up your anointing. Through training, tradition and the things that you’ve been taught they are eating up your blessing. Ugliness doesn’t show the blessing, it eats it.
Joseph was the favorite son of Jacob. His brothers were jealous and threw him into the pit. Don’t let people throw you into the pit. They don’t care about the anointing. They don’t care about you. That’s ugliness. They keep you in the pit by framing your world with their words. It’s a mental or emotional pit.
