Your Path to Financial Freedom? Five Lessons From the Life of Joseph

Do you feel God calling you to leave the rat race, but you do not have a clue as to how to go about doing so?

Like Joseph (Genesis 37), God has put a dream in your heart, and He is the only One Who has the ability to bring it to pass.

You may find yourself struggling to understand how you are going to get from here to there. The struggle will end will you realize that it is:

Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.

zechariah 4:6

Your “dream” and financial prosperity is in the realm of the Spirit. Therefore, it is going to take a spiritual path to cause it to manifest into the natural realm.

Today we are journeying through Joseph’s story to help enlighten us on the path that he had to take that would lead him from “the pit to the palace”.

God has Given Us All A Dream/Vision/Destiny

Joseph’s had a dream. In his dream, God showed him that he would be in a rulership position and that all of his family would bow down to him. Little did he know the journey he would have to take before he reached his destination.

He was disconnected from his family, became a slave, and landed in prison in a foreign land! Although Joseph was from a prominent family, he was reduced to nothing!

Joseph made it to the finish line because of his commitment to the Lord. This commitment led to his financial stability and the financial stability of an entire nation headed towards financial ruin!

Joseph’s ability to stay positive amid the hell that he was going through, gave him an audience with the most powerful man on the planet (Pharaoh) at that time by interpreting his dreams (Joseph’s gift and calling).

This leads us to the five lessons that we can learn from Joseph’s life that will lead to financial prosperity:

18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth…

deuteronomy 8:18


Your commitment to God’s calling on your life will lead you to financial freedom.


Your biggest problem was designed to lead you into purpose.


You can allow your pain to propel you into purpose or you can let it stall you in the wilderness indefinitely.


God has called you to be a good steward over that which He has already entrusted unto you.


The path to your destiny is connected to someone else’s problem that God has empowered you to solve.

Your Destiny Requires A Wilderness Experience

Don’t Allow What You Have Been Through To Keep You From Where You Are Going – Conclusion

Our financial freedom (and ability to be a blessing to others) is connected to our God-given calling. If Joseph had not been willing to walk through his wilderness experience, he would have never experienced his “promised land.”

He had to let go of offenses and forgive (his brothers who had sold him into slavery). He had to use his gifts and callings (in prison to interpret other people’s dreams who had forgotten about him once they were released) even when things weren’t going well for him, and he had to suffer false accusations and persecution (which is what landed him in prison in the first place).

Your wilderness experiences are designed to propel you into purpose. However, rest assured that the enemy will use them against you to cause you to adopt negative thinking which will ensure your failure.

You have to trust the process that God is taking you through, because your financial freedom is connected to what God has called you to do.

Declare and decree it with me:

2023: A Year of Restoration and Manifestation!

Grace and Peace,
