The Adjustment Bureau is heavens alterations service. Sometimes the way that we interpret our lives is so inaccurate that God decides to intervene by editing our inner narrative.
The way that Joseph saw his life was recorded in the naming of his two sons MANASSEH and EPRAIM. Manasseh his first born means ‘DELIVERANCE’ and Ephraim his second born means ‘FRUITFUL’. In other words Joseph perceived his life and journey as one where God delivered him from all his troubles which then enabled him to become fruitful.
Enter JACOB ( who’d suffered all his life due to a flawed narrative) who on behalf of Gods Adjustment Bureau whilst praying his patriarchal blessing over his grandchildren suddenly CROSSES HIS HANDS. Jacob reverses the order and forever alters the narrative.
Joseph had got the order wrong because as far as God was concerned it wasn’t his deliverance that made Joseph fruitful (Manasseh) but it was Joseph’s fruitfulness (Ephraim) that led to his deliverance.
FRUITFULNESS ALWAYS PRECEDES DELIVERANCE.
Stop UNCROSSING GODS HANDS! … Stop waiting for your life to improve before you can contribute, you don’t need deliverance to be fruitful your fruitfulness is your deliverance.
