Proper Alignment

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Genesis chapter 39:

21 But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

22 And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph’s hand all the prisoners who were in the prison; whatever they did there, it was his doing.

23 The keeper of the prison did not look into anything that was under Joseph’s authority, because the LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD made it prosper.

And it is also written by THE SPIRIT in Acts chapter 10:

38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

With whom have you aligned yourself?  FATHER is the only ONE WHO has the power to prosper whatever we set our hands to as we walk out our lives.  HE has the power to produce fruit from seed thus life is in HIS Hands.  Men can come to false conclusions that they are especially gifted to be productive but none of them prosper without FATHER’S intervention and Laws of prosperity.

The wealth of the wicked are laid up for the just.  FATHER will use vessels of dishonor to store up resources for HIS vessels of honor thus we are not to align ourselves with the wicked in any fashion.  Joseph suffered much affliction but THE LORD was with Joseph every step of The Way.  Joseph had to get the “world” out of his heart and FATHER’S training plan was quite successful in achieving that result.

Man’s problem is being short-term oriented.  FATHER had no issue in allowing Joseph to endure affliction over the course of a decade in preparing his heart to rise up to his purpose.

Luke recorded by THE SPIRIT in Luke chapter 13:

10 Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.

11 And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up.

12 But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, “Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.”

13 And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.

14 But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath; and he said to the crowd, “There are six days on which men ought to work; therefore come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day.”

15 The Lord then answered him and said, “Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it?

16 So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?”

Was it worth waiting eighteen years for the woman to be fully healed?  Absolutely!  In Luke chapter 8:

43 Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any,

44 came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.

45 And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?”  When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ”

46 But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.”

47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.

48 And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”

This woman spent twelve years and all her money attempting to be healed.  Can you imagine living with a chronic disease for twelve years?  In our short-term thinking, it would be a life time of struggle.  Her faith in the teaching of Jesus and His power was all it took to finally get results for THE LORD was with Him.  She aligned her trust and faith In Him.  The physicians proved that they had no healing power… they only sustained her until she encountered Jesus.

As we fully align ourselves with Our Lord Jesus Christ, we will begin to walk “with Him” instead of walking according to our self interest.  The blessings are found by those who have fully committed to walk according to The Way.  Both women received their cure because of their alignment.  There is no such thing as an incurable disease.  FATHER is not moved by any circumstance that hinders us from fulfilling our purpose.  We simply need to align ourselves WITH HIM, not man.
