Judges 11:5 “And it was so, that when the children of Ammon made war against Israel, the elders of Gilead went to fetch Jephthah out of the land of Tob:”
Judges 11:6 “And they said unto Jephthah, Come and be our captain, that we may fight with the children of Ammon.”
Beloved, if you want more pay at the workplace or promotion, don’t fight your boss or give bribes, increase your value and simply make yourself indispensable.
You and I know that when there is the threat of laying off of staff in an establishment, there are some sacred cows who are simply untouchable. If you touch them the organization collapses.
Friend, you must strive to get into that circle by increasing your value! Jephthah was on exile in the land of Tob probably a suburb but the captain’s position located him there. Joseph was in the prison but kingship went and locate him.
Men both in the Bible and in our contemporary days have risen from obscurity to prominence by the value they bring to the table, why not you?
The fourth lesson I want us to pick from here is that: developing your gifts can bring you to the place of recovery. The reason Jephthah was sent away in the first place was such that he will not inherit with them and fulfil his destiny.
Remember that the name Jephthah means; break forth, unstoppable and deliverer. They thought they have truncated his destiny and prevent him from manifesting the grace that God placed on his life but it eventually showed up.
When Jephthah developed his gifts, they didn’t just pay him his dues they gave him more than he could ever get in his father’s house. Whatever you desire can come to you if you will work on your potentials. What has been lost in your life can come back.
Prophecies can be fulfilled in your life when you work on yourself. Jephthah became a warrior and he wrestled his inheritance from the enemy. Hear this:
