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.”
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:
1Timothy 1:18 “This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;”
You don’t sit down, fold your hands and expect prophecies to be fulfilled, you make war with them. Prophecies can only come to pass via warfare.
Warfare here simply connotes fasting, prayer and confession of the word. When a prophecy has gone ahead of you, you keep declaring it. You don’t keep quiet, you confess it till you see the physical manifestation. A closed mouth is a closed destiny!
The fifth lesson I see here is this; don’t concentrate on fighting the enemy, focus on developing yourself and becoming successful. When Jephthah became a hero, where were his brothers that sent him packing? He became so great that he was no longer in the league of his brethren. He was now dealing with the elders of Israel.
When Joseph became the Prime Minister of Egypt, where were Mr. and Mrs. Potiphar? Can you put yourself in their position and imagine what was going on in their minds? Do you know that apart from governing Egypt, Joseph had another job?
He was employed to teach the members of the senate wisdom and I guess the class representative was probably Potiphar.
Psalms 105:22 “To bind his princes at his pleasure; and TEACH HIS SENATORS WISDOM”
The day Joseph was introduced as the new lecturer what did Potiphar do? Friend, you worry too much about your enemies and it is distracting you from your purpose in life.
