If today, you get an unshakable assurance that come 2019, you would the next president of Nigeria, do you think there's any temptation that would be strong enough to make you commit fraud between now and then? Even if you've never been the straight forward type, from the moment you get that assurance of such a lofty promise, you'd never want to do anything that could jeopardize the promise. So may I ask, what are you willing to sacrifice now just to preserve that future that you see/seek?

I'd like to believe that Joseph must have thought about Potiphar's wife's offer when she started to give him the "green lights",  weighed it against the dreams God had given to him and decided it wasn't worth it. He must have been so convinced that God's promise was worth so much much more that he was willing to suffer undue punishment that to preserve the dream he had seen.

You see, just like life doesn't support vacuum, I believe we are also not wired to just sacrifice or give up something we really want without having something better in view. The 4 Hebrew boys didn't just give up their portion of the menu from the king's table for nothing, I believe they were convinced they were getting something more valuable in return.

Hebrews 12:2 - Keep your eyes on Jesus, our leader and instructor. He was willing to die a shameful death on the cross because of the joy he knew would be his afterwards; and now he sits in the place of honor by the throne of God[TLB]. Even Jesus, didn't come to die on the cross for nothing, He knew what He will get afterwards will be worth all the suffering and pain he'd have to go through.

Therefore, if indeed you have seen a future so bright that you know only God can make it happen through you, the question I'd like to ask you is, what are you willing to give up to get it? God Bless You!
