Religion: The Favour of God

By Bishop John Rocque

Gen 39: 23 “…the Lord was with him; and whatever he did, the Lord made it PROSPER.”

Gen 40-41

Exodus 12: 36 “…and the Lord had given the people FAVOUR in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have what they asked.

Psalms 71:24 “…they have been put to shame and disgraced who sought to do me hurt.”


So, Joseph was shut up in the prison, or the ‘dungeon’, which is worse than an ordinary prison, for a crime he had not committed. How many times are you faced with similar situations, where you have to suffer for something that is entirely out of your hands, where you are falsely accused and made the scapegoat for things that you did not do? How many times have you had to go without because your employer or the people for whom you contracted refused to pay you what they owed you?

Faced with a similar situation, many of us would backslide. We would blame God for failing to ‘rescue’ us.

But I want you to take a lesson from Joseph. Deep in the dungeon, he remained in the presence of God and the Bible tells us that the Lord even put him in charge of other prisoners, who included senior state officials such as the chief butler and the chief baker to Pharaoh.

The children of Israel found themselves in a similar situation of slavery and deprivation. Yet the scripture says God gave them favour in the sight of their oppressors, who eventually gave them plenty of wealth – silver, gold and expensive clothes – before they left Egypt.

I want to speak this anointing upon your life that God will send the angel of distress to your enemies and that the Lord will give you the wisdom to solve their problems and get paid in the process. Believe that you will get not only justice but riches out of the people who oppressed you. Do not be surprised when your enemies are disgraced and put to shame as you prosper. You will look for them but will not find them.

Only have faith in God. At this time of this supernatural deliverance anointing, be very sensitive to the Holy Spirit. Give something to the poor and keep your mind in a constant state of prayer. Avoid unnecessary disputes with people as that will draw you away from the presence of God. Read the word, fast if you can and keep praising the Lord, even while you are still in the ‘dungeon’ – whatever bad situation that you may find yourself in.

Remember, the scripture says, “Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.” If you stay close to the Lord by obeying his word, he will bless you to the extent that you will not suffer like the rest of the people, even when confronted with problems because the Lord will be with you in those problems in order to bring you out of them.


Thanks for reading this and God bless you.
