Topic: Grace For Divine Discovery: (The Law of Visibility)
Text: Genesis 37: 15
“And a certain man found him and behold, he was wandering in the field: and the man asked him, saying, What seekest thou?”
From the text, we can postulate that if nobody found Joseph, his wandering would have continued.
We can safely assume that he would have returned to his father’s house and told his father that he was not successful in accomplishing the task he was sent to do.
This was the story of Joseph as he was looking for his brothers who were grazing the flocks. In the scripture, Joseph was found by a nameless man. We have no information on the man’s name or where he was coming from.
However, focusing on Joseph, we have to understand that as humans, we have different things we are searching for in life. Thus, the location you decide to live or to study, the country you plan to migrate to are all means of seeking and exploring things. To establish a successful link between us and what we seek is a connecting factor known as ‘being discovered, found or located’. located’
Two things to note about this connecting factor are that:
- Life can be frustrating until you are discovered.
- Your dream may remain a nightmare until you are found
1 Samuel 16: 18 (NKJV) “Then one of the servants answered and said, “Look, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, who is skillful in playing, a mighty man of valor, a man of war, prudent in speech, and a handsome person; and the LORD is with him.”
From the text above, we learn about how the servant of King Saul appraised David. We must remember that prior to this year, David was discovered and singled out by Samuel from his brothers. Although he was anointed by Samuel, the throne was far from him, and it still took the servant’s appraisal for him to be remembered. Everything involved in the discovery and location of David is part of the mysteries of being discovered/found/located.
The Law of Visibility states that ‘If you are not visible, you cannot be connected. If you are not connected, you cannot be rewarded.’
In life, visibility determines connectivity and the connection established determines the reward that follows it. It is not enough to be skilled; it is not enough to be pretty; it is not enough to have all the credentials. As good as any’ of these things may be, they can still be painfully inadequate until a discovery of the bearer/carrier. All of these things may amount to nothing until you are seen, discovered, found or located.
For your rewards to change, someone has to step into your life, guide and direct you to where your destiny will find relevance.
The journey (middle point) between dreaming and the manifestation of your dreams requires a connection. You are only a connection away from where your dream will find expression. If you cannot be found, you cannot be lifted, helped, assisted, or rewarded. Regardless of your anointing and skill, you can still be invisible to others if no one discovers you.
When multiple people are seeking for the same opportunities, it is the one who is seen that will be rewarded. You can be in existence but never appear in the realm and sight of others. You can be looked at by others and not be seen by them. We have to fervently pray to God for the removal of the veils covering the sight of others in discovering us.
2 Corinthians 3: 16 – 18 (NIV) “But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
