Judges 11:3 “Then Jephthah fled from his brethren, and dwelt in the land of Tob…”
Romans 8:28 “We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.” (AMP)
Where you are presently might not be convenient or comfortable for now. It might not even have a semblance of the colourful future you have envisioned but then, know that all things are fitting into a plan to give birth to the real you that God created.
You just stepped into Tob and your life is about to take an upward thrust! God doesn’t take people backward but know that every athlete that want to do the long jump will need to take few steps backwards, not for retrogression but to gather enough momentum that will take him forward.
You are a Jephthah and nothing can work against you. The thrusting out of Jephthah by his brethren was not a thrusting down but rather for elevation. I can assure you this morning that your life is about to take a leap that will bewilder your enemies.
When the brothers of Joseph came back several years later they couldn’t recognize him. He recognized them because they didn’t change, they remained stagnant because they didn’t go to “Tob”!
Most times the enmity against you is just to get you to Tob. They killed Jesus, buried him and left him to rot not realizing that they just moved him to Tob. The word “Tob” looks and sounds like “Tomb”, but hear this:
1Corinthians 2:8 “Which none of the princes of this world knew for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”
Your life is a mystery. Your crucifixion, the assassination of your character, the lies told against you, the hatred and plots will all work in your favour!
Friend, the folks that thrust you out have just done you a great favour; they just pushed you to Tob; the place of glory! Excel there!
