TOPIC: LEARN TO SAY “NO” IN 2020!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: GENESIS 39:1-10
Genesis 39:1-10 King James Version (KJV)
39 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.
2 And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.
3 And his master saw that the Lord was with him, and that the Lord made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
4 And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.
5 And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the Lord was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.
6 And he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured.

7 And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.
8 But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;
9 There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?
10 And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.
Welcome! Today’s Word Verses 8 and 10 says: “But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, ‘Behold, my master does not know what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand’… And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her” Note the words: “BUT HE REFUSED OR HE HEARKENED NOT.” In this your ELEVATION year, the Holy Ghost wants you to learm how to say, “NO” to people! Joseph would not have been ELEVATED without his ability to say “NO” to certain people or circumstances! Learn to sometimes be hard on people! If you want to be great, you must learn to say “NO!” Learn and receive GRACE on how to say “NO” to people on Monday and yet you say “YES to the same people on Tuesday, etc. Learn to be hard on Wednesday and on Thursday you embrace them.
If you are always too nice this year, you will destroy your destiny! Stop playing the “Mr/Ms NICE GUY” in town! Offending people sometimes, is a road you must pass through! Oh, yes! If you are a CEO, you must learn how to fire and hire when necessary even if you are emotionally attached to people. Joseph told Potiphar’s wife “NO, I can’t sleep with you!”
He hurt her emotions, feelings and carnal desires and she became very angry/bitter with him, but that didn’t matter because Joseph’s God saw it all! It takes courage to say “NO!” Say “NO” because you want to Please God! Say “NO” because you want to stand for the truth! Say “NO” because you want to preserve your future – even if you are misunderstood! Oh! Learn to hurt your children sometimes, if they must be great learn to say “NO” to them sometimes! Learn to say “NO” to sin and every appearance of evil! Don’t say “YES” out of self-pity when you are supposed to say NO” out of necessity! Joseph would have yielded to the daily pressure of Potiphar’s wife out of pity for his mistress, but because he said “NO,” God said YES to him!
I see God saying” YES to you concerning some battles! It is YOUR YEAR OF DIVINE YES from above! Take note of this: MEN WILL SOMETIMES FORGET THE GOOD YOU DID YESTERDAY! They all forgot the good that Joseph had done and they will always forget the good that you have done. Once you say “NO”, they will forget all the good you have done! Yes! One NO from you can erase a hundred “YES” you have said before. That is man for you! But if God be for you, who can be against you? So, the secret is to know when to say “NO” and when to say “YES”!
