You become insensitive to the way your power and status affect others. Sometimes you become arrogant and have a sense of entitlement as far as positions and titles are concerned. Many peole forget how they had to submit, serve, display patience, and wait on God's to elevate them to their next level.
As long as Joseph was wearing the robe he couldn't understand the struggles and frustrations of his brothers who'd worked just as hard, deserved their father's love just as much, but always seemed to keep coming up short. As long as we're in the limelight, as long as all the perks and favors are coming our direction, we become oblivious to the needs of others who might need mentoring and encouragement to be all that God intended them to be.
That's why Paul writes, "In honor preferring one another" (Romans 12:10). as long as he was wearing the robe Joseph didn't know what he was capable of underfire. He didn't know that God is enough, even when you have lost everything. many of us want the anointing of God, but we are unwilling to suffer and do what is necessary to obtain it. Others on the outside see the the anointing and favor of God on your life, but are ignorant of what you had to go through to get the divine favor of God working through your life and in the lives of others.
Before Joseph could wear the next robe, the one that made him Prime Minister of Egypt, he would spend years as a slave and prisoner. It was in a prison, not a palace, that he came to realize he wasn't the only one for whom life hadn't turned out according to plan.
(Before he could lead people, he first had to understand them). Becareful! Self-preoccupation disqualifies you in the eyes of God! so if you're in between robes today, rejoice. You are in a learning period, and like Joseph, God is with you. When you come through this, you'll be equipped for the job he's called you to do!
Remember, to who much is given, much is required. Have an awesome day!
And: "Don't Forget To Say Your Prayers.!
