Genesis 15:13-14 NKJV “Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions.”
Here, God foretold Abraham what would happen to the Israelites in the future; you know that God knows the end from the beginning. And it happened as God said it would; for four hundred and thirty years, the Israelites dwelt in Egypt, and in the latter part of their stay, a new Pharaoh made them slaves, and made them serve under very harsh conditions. Then on the eve of their exodus, God instructed them to get articles of silver and gold from their neighbours, and He granted them favour so that they got whatever they requested for, so the Israelites plundered the Egyptians and came out rich!
Something similar happened to Jacob: for many years he served Laban his father in law, and as a result of his presence, God blessed Laban; even Laban acknowledged that he knew he was blessed because of Jacob. But Laban maltreated Jacob and cheated him; he changed his wages ten times! But just before Jacob left Laban, God appeared, and gave Jacob an idea that caused the wealth of Laban to be transferred to him “overnight”! And what he thought he lost in years of service to Laban, God gave him in multiplied amounts. Hallelujah!
I have a good word for someone today: you will not leave empty handed! You have served faithfully for so long with little or nothing to show for it; they have abused you and denied you your rights and entitlements; and not rewarded you sufficiently: I don’t know how God will do it, but you will have the last laugh! You will come out strong, big, prosperous and great! Don’t ask how! God has done it before and He’s still doing it today! He will do it for you too, in the name of Jesus!
